Need to sell your home?

“Jennifer is the one you want. She is amazing. I walked in to the office unannounced, she had a beautiful pictures taken and listed the house within a week on the exact day we wanted. She SOLD THE HOUSE ON DAY ONE, FOR MORE THAN ASKING PRICE!!!! She took care of everything without us asking and was one step ahead the whole time. When i sell a house again she will be the one we use. NO ONE CAN MATCH HER DEDICATION. She was friendly, easy going and AMAZING. Seriously, when we decided to sell our house, i was afraid of getting some pushy cheesy real estate person who drove a yellow hummer. Jennifer was amazing and the opposite of what i expected. She is genuine and hardworking. She knows every aspect and handled everything. She is worth every penny and then some. If you are going to sell your house. List it with Jennifer! She even took care of all the little things we were worried about due to being out of town.”
