Clients are saying:
"Relocation can be a pretty stressful experience for a family. Having an agent that truly understood this and made every effort to minimize the stress we were experiencing was nothing short of a miracle! Beyond being personable and practical, Anne gets the job done! With the extensive travel my family and I were involved in, Anne stepped in numerous times along the way. She always made herself available and called upon all resources necessary so that we could continue to meet our personal and professional demands. Even when surprises surfaced, Anne remained completely focused and kept our relocation process on track. We are extremely grateful to have worked with Anne and absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a pleasant, results-focused experience."
"It was truly a pleasure working with Anne Hodge as she helped us to sell one home and buy another. She was professional and knowledgeable about the market, offering important advice and answering all of our questions thoroughly throughout the process. Anne continually exceeded our expectations as she helped with every little detail in order to make our experience smooth and as stress free as possible. Thank you, Anne!!!"
"Anne did an amazing job selling our house after another realtor tried but couldn't get the sale. We highly recommend Anne. She is smart, capable and collaborative. All the things you want in a solid real estate agent."
"Anne is incredibly professional and efficient. If Anne said she was going to send me something, it was in my inbox before I woke up the next morning. She accommodated my wife and me traveling in from out of state by showing us multiple different types of homes in different price ranges all in one day! She showed up for every inspection that we needed completed (being out of state, we were not able to be present in person) and kept us well informed every step of the way. Even after the sale is complete, Anne cares about the people she works with enough to make sure that they are comfortable in their new homes and neighborhoods."
"Anne did a wonderful job selling our home. She was educated on the market and available to us. We were in the process of an international relocation and she was flexible, supportive and patient with us. Given the location of our home, we struggled to find the right buyer - seemed like everyone had an excuse for wanting us to drive the price WAY DOWN. Anne stuck to her guns and got us a price we were comfortable with. It was great working with her and we would emphatically refer her to others. Thanks Anne!"
