"Susan was great to work with! I have had many friends who have worked with her in the past and were very happy! She did not rest until she helped me find the property I was looking for :)"
"Susan and Dan did an amazing job. They were personable, flexible and asked great questions? We were fairly high-maintenance clients and they worked with us through everything. They gave good pricing advice, but allowed us to steer the project. we ended up following their advice anyway. I would most definitely recommend Susan and Dan to friends and family..Jay & Tara"
