Clients are saying:
"Sondra was great for helping us find exactly the house we needed! We were first time home buyers and wanted to find a house at a low price point to rehab to our liking. At our first meeting, Sondra sat with us for a few hours to look over houses and gave us advice on all of the pros and cons of rehabbing a house vs buying new or building. We really appreciated that she has many years of experience and a ton of knowledge in both realty and rehabbing/design. By the end of our initial meeting she was able to refine what features of the home were really important to us and we ended up buying the 2nd house she showed us! It was a quick, smooth process which we really appreciated."
"I knew very little about the home selling process especially my house had many issues but Sondra explained everything to me throughout the process.
With her knowledge and experience she made everything so easy and stress free, made the entire process very easy, I felt very safe to work with and my results were more than I expected!
