"I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to sell my home. I live 700 miles away and she did all of this during a pandemic. Fran was responsive, compassionate, attentive, detail oriented and a relentless when it came to getting the job done. She was constantly communicating and providing updates. She went the extra mile to get my house ready to be shown and subsequently sold. Within 2 days of it being on the market it had multiple offers. Fran dedicated a ton of time and energy to get my house sold for my asking price and I couldn’t be more appreciative of her efforts. I am lucky to have her as my realtor and will definitely have her help me find a home when I move to the area. Doing what she did in these crazy times with a pandemic shows her dedication and professionalism. I give her the highest praise for her work with my home. You will be grateful if you choose her as your realtor. Fran is the best!" - Andy
