The picture package that Lisa put together for our listing was extraordinary- it was the first I've seen that is composed to tell the story of the listing. Very few agents understand the medium in this way. Her advice on home repairs & improvements was sound without going overboard and was key to making the sale. Her pricing strategy was sound and properly reflected the market. I highly recommend her. "

Lisa is 100% on the ball! She knows all, sees all, and hears all. She is solid and responded to all our questions and needs. She was helpful with inspections, etc. in our absence. We have already used Lisa as our agent on two purchases. "
