"Ann is so knowledgable about real estate! She knew the areas we were looking and listened to what we wanted. Every house we saw was something we considered- and was exactly the style we told her we wanted. She was open to all hours and communication times. We only went out 2 times until she found us our future home!!!"
"Ann Zartman was excellent and @properties is lucky to have her on staff. So professional, detailed, and compassionate. I just had open heart surgery during the sale process, and had to go back in due to complications in April. She worked with us 100% and made the process so easy, while making sure my health was number one. The pricing for the sale was spot on, the suggestions to make it the most marketable were fantastic. If you are need of a professional, fantastic, caring, detailed realtor Ann is your girl."
"Ann Zartman is one of the most hard working people I've ever met. We met Ann one day as we were attending open houses and from that day on she has been at our side every step of the way through our major downsize. Ann's attention to detail and her thoroughness led us through the process with complete confidence . All of our questions were answered quickly and with full knowledge and the details of the sale from Broker's Open to final walk through and closing were well taken care of by Ann. She took the extra steps necessary to make sure that the entire process went smoothly and that every detail was covered.Ann was at our side as we moved from the home we and our children had lived in for 25 years. She was sensitive to the change we were making and checked in with much kindness during purging, packing, junking, laughs and tears. Ann made it a point to get to know our neighborhood and neighbors so that she could share those important connections with potential buyers. She was sensitive to the needs of our entire family, including the dogs, as she scheduled appointments. Ann was at the house with us or for us and was extremely well prepared with questions and follow up. Ann is incredible. She is professional, kind, caring, thorough, always on time, attentive to the needs of a family and sensitive to both the business and emotional pieces of buying and selling. We are so thankful that we ran into her one Sunday afternoon. Ann is a wonderful person and a perfectly professional and caring realtor."
