Clients are saying:
"Olivia and Lindsey were great! They helped my find contractors to fix up the condo to sell and went above and beyond staging the place to where it sold after the first showing for full ask! Being an out of state seller, and during the 2020 pandemic, this extra help was super important! Like Olivia says, if its priced right and shows really well, it will sell- listen to her advice and your home will sell just as quick! Thank you Olivia!"
"Olivia was fantastic! She walked us through all the details of selling of our home through pandemic like a pro she is. I highly recommend her and her team."
"My wife and I have worked with Olivia and her team for years on multiple transactions. She has consistently exceeded our expectations. Her tenacity, market knowledge and customer focus is simply outstanding and I would give her more stars if I could! She has always gone above and beyond has delivered on every occasion. We recently worked her her to sell a smaller rental unit we owned and her level of commitment made us feel as though we were selling a million dollar unit. Thanks again Team Olivia!!!"
"Olivia has the patience of a Saint!!! We have worked with her for years and we FINALLY found the right property based on our wish list. Olivia is smart as a whip, which is good for the folks she represents because she is about as dialed-in as they come. She has a great network and because of that, we sold our home without listing on the MLS and it sold in less than a week. Olivia and her team are fun to work with - great energy. Plus, Olivia is an interior designer by trade, she can help you visualize a property’s potential. If you are buying or selling, you definitely want to reach out to her!"
"Paul was absolutely incredible and finding me places that fit what I was looking for and couldn't be more friendly and helpful during the whole process. I was impressed by his responsivenes to all my questions, even during off hours! I would recommend him anyone looking in the city. Thanks Paul!"
