Dear Chris and Patty,
"Patty is the greatest! As a first time seller, I needed a lot of guidance and some hand-holding and she was there every step of the way. My house was on the market, sold, and I was in my new home in less than 60 days! Patty is personable, professional, highly knowledgeable, and very trustworthy. It was a pleasure working with her!"
