Happy New Year, Diane & Team,

2020 was a tough year for us all, yet there were high points like buying our home. We continue to appreciate all you did to make this process smooth, easy and enjoyable.

Wishing you all the best in 2021 and beyond.

Hi Diane… I met some of your team at my house at end of July and they gave Julie and me much information and advice about selling our home at that time. They indicated the market was hot and that they would be successful in completing  a sale within 60 days at the suggested sale price.

Allison and Heather were extremely professional in the approach and performed to the standards that they had suggested. They did everything possible that was needed in a 45 days period. We closed yesterday. The help and suggestions covering escrow, title, repair people, inspectors, hand holding, cleaners, movers and donatees were so important.

As to Kristeen, she was up to speed about anything due with closing. She was prompt with timing of issues and she responded freely with her responses to our questions and concerns.

You should be very proud of the performance of this crew on this transaction. They far exceeded my expectations. I would easily recommend your company based on this performance.

Thank you again.

Marty K.

It was a pleasure working with all of you….you have a professional team that works well together…much appreciated.

Best wishes,

Kevin and Beth Davies

It was an absolute pleasure working with Heather Wong and the entire DWA Team. We started the process as curious lookers, but very uncertain about buying in the desert. Some realtors would have written us off as not-serious-buyers, however this isn’t what happened. Instead, Heather and team were generous with their time, taking us on tours of various communities and sharing their knowledge. They demonstrated complete understanding and patience with our process, which lasted just over a year. As our interest in Indian Ridge grew, Heather helped us find the PERFECT house and made sure the buying process was smooth and easy. This was no easy feat given that the purchase was happening during a pandemic! We would, without hesitation, recommend Heather and DWA to anyone. Kudos to all!

Kevin and Beth Davies

Brett Hartzell

DWA team,

Rhonda and I have been very pleased with the service and level of attention to detail and strategy that we have received from your team. We have now completed 3 transactions together, and each one had its own challenges, but we got through them with the help and direction from Allison and Diane and the entire team. Even as a professional commercial real estate person, I find the expertise and judgement of professionals that do this every day for a living invaluable to me and to the process. Thank you again.


Brett Hartzell

Rick and Susan Grider

We are very appreciative of all the efforts that were made on our behalf to achieve the sale! Our agent, Heather Wong, went above and beyond in helping us and we would recommend her for sure. We wish Heather and the entire team continued success!!

Thank You.

Ran across this string today looking for something, and it brought back memories. How wonderful you were to work with. How we got such a wonderful price for our home. How lucky we were to get out before all this foolishness. And….how much I miss being there.

Please know in this time of abject boredom (I can only image the market right now) that you made a big difference in our lives.  We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Again,

Don and Janet Darst

Anita Wolman

I want to thank you all for your assistance in our recent purchase. In particular, Terrie was professional, knowledgeable, patient and essential. For over a year she showed us dozens of homes, many more than once. She was extremely respectful of our budget and requirements as well as likes and dislikes. She never pushed us outside our comfort zone and was always available to accommodate our (changing) goals. We could not have done this without her assistance.  Everyone we met was helpful and professional. I would recommend that anyone interested in Indian Ridge real estate utilize your group and especially Terrie.


Anita Wolman

Ian and Terry Watson

We met Terrie Pena at an open house in January and we were impressed with her knowledge and experience in the Indian Ridge community. We contacted her a week later to look at some other properties and she showed us prospective homes, provided lots of information and was very accommodating with our schedule. When we decided to move forward on a property, she was very helpful, professional, knowledgeable and always answered our questions patiently, promptly and thoroughly. From beginning to end, Terrie made our home buying experience a very pleasant one. I would highly recommend her and her staff to anyone looking to buy a new home. We always felt Terrie and her very competent staff were looking out for us and they looked after us very well.

Thank you!

Ian & Terry

Jerry and Delores


Thanks for providing all the documents for our recent home purchase at IRCC. This is yet another example of the fine continuous work your team has done for us over the past few months. We can’t wait until we can safely return to IRCC to move into our new home. Hopefully, it will be sometime during the latter part of May. This whole COVID-19 thing has been an ordeal for literally everyone, and it’s not going to be over for quite some time.

The entire Diane Williams and Associates team has done a remarkable job, and it functions as a “team” in every good respect. While everyone in the office has done a good job for us, there are a few I would like to especially note, beginning with Terrie Pena. We have bought and sold a number of homes over the years – by my count, 14.  Terrie, by a wide margin, is the best realtor we have ever had. She is experienced, knowledgeable, efficient, ethical, and always friendly and considerate. She is now a trusted friend, and will be the one we call on should we decide to buy and sell again in the valley! (I don’t expect that to be soon, however.) Others who have done their job equally well include Diane, Allison, Heather, and of course, you. We know that your door at IRCC is always open, and there will be there to help.

Jerry and Delores

John and Ruby

God was good to us as we had our house on market for over two years and we ended up selling and closing on the day the market dropped 3,000 points… sometimes you have to look into the pit to realize how blessed your life is.

I want you to know how happy we are with your team for hanging in there and continually advising us on making our home as marketable as possible.

John and Ruby

Julienne Abelsen

Hey Diane,

I just wanted to thank you and your team for such fabulous service they gave us!  We are so happy with your on-site sales office, what professional staff, I just can’t say one negative thing, everything was perfect. I loved every one of the people we worked with, awesome in every way. I just wanted you to know that and we have recommended your on-site sales office to many of our friends and will continue to do so.

You take care, know you are loved and your whole staff is loved.

Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!  We are happy and so relieved and know that Kevin and his wife are going to enjoy that view and hope they will be happy with their purchase.

Thank you,

Julienne Abelsen

Dear Wonderful Ladies:

Your kindness and professionalism throughout this process was valued and appreciated. Seems as though, with everyone’s support, it was a seamless transaction. Thank you to everyone involved.

All the best,

Irene and Mike Fenton

Kevin and Shelley Ziolkowski

I would like to thank everyone on Diane’s team for making this home sale come together! Diane, thank you for mentioning 528 Mesa Grande at one of your open houses back in March which really got the ball rolling and caught our interest in this home. A special thanks to Allison for putting together the Contingency Offer at the 11th hour and getting the deal done! It was a bit of a roller coaster ride but the team looked after our needs all the way! A job well done!! Thanks Again and hope to see you in the fall!

Kevin & Shelley Ziolkowski

Lang and Cheryl

Allison Renz is probably the best or one of best realtors we have worked with (period)…very experienced and professional with great follow through. She is willing to do the “little” things that make the process go smoothly… and we had FUN!! We would comfortably recommend her to anyone!!

Ken and Adrienne Adler

When we decided to look for a home in Sun City Palm Desert, we were lucky enough to have a friend who lived here recommend that we use Frank Montiforte from Bennion Deville Real Estate as our agent. We contacted Frank and he quickly showed us a number of homes that met our needs. Unfortunately, our escrow didn’t close on the property we were selling for a year and a half longer than we had planned. Frank never faltered. He continued to show us properties as they came up. Finally, our escrow closed and we were able to make an offer on a beautiful home. The entire transaction went so smoothly, Frank and all the beautiful women in his office took care of everything so capably and efficiently that what can be a very stressful experience became a piece of cake. If we ever buy another home (and I sincerely hope we don’t) we wouldn’t consider going anywhere but back to Bennion Deville and Frank Montiforte.

Ken and Adrienne Adler

Phil and Ann Marie Simone

We would like to express our sincerest appreciation to Frank Montiforte and your entire staff for the endless time and effort extended to us in our search over the past two years for a new home in Palm Desert. Initially, we called your office on a Saturday morning to tour an open house in a gated community. We quickly received a return call that someone from your office would call and accompany us to look at this open house.

In less than four minutes I received a call from Frank Montiforte who devoted most of his day determining our search parameters, type of home desired, location and discussed the various aspects of desert residence. We visited several open homes that Saturday and returned periodically for scheduled appointments over the next two months to narrow our scope. Throughout this process Frank’s energy was unwavering responding to our search parameters. Through the combined efforts of Frank, Kristeen Kidd, Heather and your staff, we closed escrow on our new home. In closing we are delighted to have Frank represent us. His real estate market knowledge helped guided us through the search process. We look forward to referring Frank to friends and future prospective buyers and sellers.

Tami and Sherri

Hello ladies,

… It’s official, WE DID IT!! Thanks to each and every one of you for helping to making this sale of our home a reality! It definitely took a village but we got it done! We are thrilled that you found someone who truly loves the home and is eager to enjoy it. I am beyond thrilled to have this wrapped up in time to enjoy my summer here in The Catskills of NY. Sherri and I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts including the numerous Open Houses, the networking, and the efficiency with which the docs and myriad of paperwork was handled.


Tami and Sherri

Trish and Angelo Lucarino

We were looking for a realtor to sell our home and googled best realtor in Palm Desert and Diane Williams came up. We set up an appointment and Heather and Allison came. We had such a good feeling from them that we actually cancelled another appointment we had with a different realtor. We had an excellent experience working with them. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and work ethics were awesome and they helped us navigate selling a home in the US market as we are Canadian. They sold our home quite quickly and the entire process was smooth and easy. We highly recommend them and would work with them again in a heart beat!

Chris and Carol

Hi Kristeen,

Well, who would’ve thought that we’d be dealing with each other on this side… You have always been such a pleasure to deal with rentals. Heather has been phenomenal, and it has just been very special working with her on a personal level and now you as well after all of these many years.

We are so happy and thanks for your sweet congratulatory sentiment… We look forward to working with you on our purchase!

Best regards always,

Chris and Carol

Diane, Allison, Terrie and Heather you guys are an amazing team!! We are thrilled with our house and I doubt there are many other teams who could have made this happen for us. You will get all our referrals and indeed already have one in Todd and Vanessa McKay. You worked magic for them as well and they too are thrilled.

All the best,

There’s no way to thank all of you for taking such good care of me as I buy and sell homes here.

My love to you all and wish us all good health, lots of happiness and lots of fun in the future!!!

Jim and Paula Melby

Thank you and your team for doing such a great job. While the residential market in the desert is showing signs of improving, when we first proposed selling our Indian Ridge home and buying another in the same community, I was not optimistic that it would happen very quickly. I can’t tell you how pleased we were to have both the sale and the purchase close within 60 days of us first reaching out to you to explore the possibility of the sale. The efforts of Terrie, Kristeen and the rest of your team couldn’t have been better.

Warmest regards,

Jim & Paula

Donn Rediger


And thank you and your staff for a VERY good job of marketing the house – you not only successfully marketed it but you didn’t forget me from the point of sale on – instead you, Heather and Kristeen kept me in the information loop and helped with the voluminous list of things to do between sale and closing. Each of you was VERY responsive, professional and helpful throughout the entire transaction. I have put in a good word for you with several IRCC homeowners who have asked me about the process and will continue to do so. Thanks again for a great job.

Hi Diane,

Our experience was amazing and extremely professional. Terrie has done so much for us it is just unbelievable. We were so lucky to have gotten her as our real estate agent. We give her an A+ plus plus plus.

Hi Allison,

Your team (and YOU!) were great to work with.  Very collaborative and you work as a unit – it shows in the good way – it just naturally happens.  I felt gently led through the whole process as all of you were proactive and so professional.  It was a great experience.  It was refreshing and inspiring as this has not been the case with other “teams” we have worked with in the valley.  I look forward to the next deal!

Ralph and Alicia Siegal

Hi Diane – just a quick note from me and my wife Alicia to let you know how much we enjoyed working with Allison on our Sandpiper home purchase. From the first conversation with Allison, we knew we were in good hands. She was knowledgeable, responsive, helpful and, most importantly, consistently conveyed a focus on helping us to make a good choice to meet our needs. On deal issues, she provided sound advice and great clarity as we considered things like….offering price, closing terms, inspection findings….just to name a few.  She quickly figured out our likes and dislikes and narrowed down our choices without limiting us. And, she was very transparent about pluses and negatives she observed in the properties we considered along the way. In that regard, she added great value.

We were also impressed with her flexibility in finding time to work with us, often with little advance notice.

Having been in a professional organization providing clients services that oftentimes can be viewed as a commodity business, I value the fact that exceptional customer service skills and responsiveness often are one of the few differentiators that distinguish service providers. In this regard, Allison represents you and your organization exceptionally well!!

I should also mention that there was a point where scheduling conflicts required Heather to show us a few properties. While we didn’t have the same exposure to Heather as we did to Allison, I am confident that her clients would make many, if not all, of the same observations about her customer facing skills – so I would think these attributes must be part of your team training and culture.

It was a delight working with Allison as the ambassador of your organization – and I wanted to let you know that.

Regards, Ralph

Lyle and Peggy Velure

Heather Wong is simply the best. I have spent 53 years in the legal profession and have dealt with scores of realtors. I have yet to meet one as good as Heather. She has been enormous help to us in finding and purchasing a winter home in Rancho Mirage. She is courteous, patient and skillful. She made finding and purchasing a condo an easy adventure. She also found a great remodeler for us and went out of her way to make sure we had all the necessary information when we were doing all of this from our home in Oregon. We would highly recommend Heather to anyone.

Hello Diane,

I had clients in town looking in Indian Ridge over the past five days, and we were assisted by Heather Wong for several of your listings. I felt compelled to reach out and give you some feedback on her. Keep in mind this comes from someone with onsite experience having worked at Andalusia at Coral Mountain and Toscana Country Club for four years collectively.

Heather is an awesome representative of you and your brand. She is professional, accommodating, knows the floor plans and inventory extremely well, and most importantly, is honest. My clients and I felt very comfortable with her. You probably know this, but again, I felt compelled to let you know.

With my regards,

Lawrence Malestic, Realtor

Jeff and Reita Pooley

Although it took longer than we anticipated to sell our home in Indian Ridge, we believe Diane Williams & Associates did all they could do and more to help us sell our house.  We were out of town in our new house in Valencia or our second home in Colorado and Diane and her Associates were wonderful in providing us with outstanding service and advice.  They were always available to let in a vendor when necessary to take care of something on the property.  Whether is was Diane, Heather, Allison or someone else in the office they all treated us to first class service and where totally available when needed.  We would certainly highly recommend Diane Williams & Associates to any homeowner in Indian Ridge wanting to sell their home.

Dear Diane,

We wanted you to know what a very pleasant experience these past few months have been working with you and your very accomplished staff…Allison, Heather, Kristeen and Terrie. The speed with which everyone took charge to meet our needs to sell our home was impressive. All our questions were answered and handled with personal care, efficiency and speed. We are very happy and satisfied with the sale of our home. We have told many people about the success of the Diane Williams Sales Office staff at IRCC and about how hardworking and dynamic everyone was to work with. We felt your confidence come through and it truly was a pleasure working with each and every one of you!

Thank you so much,

Judy and Bob Rifkin

My wife and I just finished purchasing a home in Indian Ridge Country Club, in Palm Desert and I’d just like to give Diane Williams & Associates On-Site Office a huge thank you.

The purchase process details were very challenging, behind the curtain, and the on-site team worked through them seamlessly.

Our lead was Allison Renz whose in-depth knowledge of the club, the neighborhood/housing types, fees and overall ability to turn boulder type issues into pebbles was just astounding. Her energy, friendliness and willingness to go way beyond a realtor’s job description to solve any issue that arose made both my wife and I feel totally delighted with our decision to purchase.

Compounding the challenge is that we were long distant purchasers who could only be in the area for very short periods, in addition we wanted to purchase, get the house ready to rent, find a renter who would sign a one year lease, to time our “move in date” with my retirement.

We closed and within approximately 30 days they located a renter and had my new house leased.  I just cannot put into words how well the team members of Diane Williams & Associates came together to make my purchase a pleasure and not a chore!

Gentlemen, I thought you might like to see a letter I wrote to Diane Williams regarding our recent purchase in Indian Ridge Country Club. Diane’s team was superb, and made the whole thing a positive experience.

Best regards, Poul Andersen

Dear Diane,

I am so pleased that Red Arrow Trail has closed. In all reality, this experience has brought new insight and humility to myself and Ed. We are so used to doing things in a 60’s/70’s kind of way. We have learned that life in the world today is different, with new rules on how to do things. It’s no longer trust what I say, verification of things are needed. In that regard, I must say, your recommendation of Annette Eustice was right on the mark. Annette had to guide two old dogs through the new world of mortgage loans. Annette never went in a negative direction, when she easily could have with Ed and myself. I am thankful to have worked with someone so positive. If not for her can do attitude, I’m not certain this transaction would have ended as well as it has. Many of the things that happened during this transaction, were mainly because of things or requests that Ed and I thought were over the top of normal in our world, but in reality, are the norm in our new world. We are thankful and happy for all the work of your entire team, and we have already referred new business to Annette and the folks at Franklin. I always used to tell the people who worked for me, things can happen along the way in a transaction, as long as the last taste in the customers mouth is positive, you have done your job well, to the best of your ability, which is true in this case.

All the best, and looking forward to working with you and your team going forward.

Hi Diane,

Ron and I are extremely pleased with the experience we had working with Allison, Kristeen, and your team to purchase our home at Indian Ridge. Allison’s professionalism, knowledge and unflappable personality, made it easy to navigate all the aspects of buying our home and the “fix-its” once we got there. We could not have engineered a better fit for us, the service and commitment never wavered. A few times, when things seem to be falling apart (literally), Allison always had the “glass half full” attitude, and patience beyond belief. Thank you! Have a wonderful summer!

Bob and June Johnston

Frank, I’ve been wanting to send this note of Thank You for some time but something always came up and at my age I do forget. I want you to know what a great job you did representing me and June in the sale of our home in Sun City Palm Desert. Your professional presentation of your Marketing Plan was well done. You promised open houses, extensive newspaper advertising, Internet advertising and other mass media publications and what you committed to you did. However the most important part of your representation was the communication back from open houses and other realtor comments also the personal visits to discuss other strategies to sell the house. One last thing which exceeded our expectations was, after the sale of our home you assisted in helping us find individuals to remove furniture, TV’s and other household  items which we were not taking with us. This not only helped us but helped many people which are less fortunate.

Thank you

Bob & June Johnston

Hi Diane,

Your team did an excellent job. Everything went as planned. Thank you for all your help over the years.

Gregory Chudacoff

Dear Frank:

I am sorry I didn’t write sooner. I want to thank you for your excellent service you provided my mother in helping sell her home. You went well beyond all reasonable expectations – – – from displaying incredible patience, helping her find the workmen to make the appropriate repairs, to even getting her food when she wasn’t really eating.

Before the listing, you told me “don’t worry, I will take care of your mother”. Although I really didn’t believe it, you were a godsend. I don’t think she (or I) could have gotten through the process without you.

My mother thinks of you not only as her real estate agent, but as her friend. If you ever need a recommendation, I am happy to give you a glowing one!!

Enclosed is a gift I hope you enjoy! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Bruce and Sharon Carmichael

I don’t know how we could have ever gotten to the community we were looking for without you Diane so that we could realize our dreams to find the right house and right Country Club here in the Desert. You worked for months to help us try to sell our home in PGA West so that we could find a more social club filled with some working entrepreneurs-a task that we knew was a tall order. You helped us research and advised us tirelessly about places to move to. Once you helped us identify the right community, you were always willing and showed us many places and guided us with your advice and suggestions so we could make a good decision. We are still in disbelief because, after all this work and planning, you found us the perfect home in the perfect location but we had no way to buy it at “that moment in time”-suddenly we were heartbroken. Here we were squarely stuck in the middle of another mortgage and home closing in San Diego at the time you help us find our dream home and location. You cannot imagine how delighted we were by the incredibly creative and seemingly impossible solution you instantly came up with for us. You used your amazing talent to negotiate with the owner of the property and rallied to get the Seller’s Agent to cooperate so they would give us a short term rental with an option to purchase, without a huge outlay of cash that would kill our mortgage in process and the lease option was set so we were able to exercise in a short thirty day period once our other mortgage on our San Diego home had closed.

We are so thankful or all the hours of time you spent for us and for all the hand holding to get both the Seller and Seller’s agent to cooperate and work with us. We are grateful for this new home that you and your team was able to find for us at Ironwood in Palm Desert. We feel you are totally the ultimate real estate professional and we have never worked with an agent who cared as much as you do nor who has given us such sound advice in selling and buying a home. We truly love our new home and the community you helped us settle into-what a gift you have given to us Diane, thank you. Bruce and I are forever your greatest fans and we could never work with anyone else. We highly recommend you to everyone we speak to who is looking for a real estate professional-there is no one better.

Diane… I have so appreciated the support of your office during this first year of my home ownership. I am so happy with the home I purchased as are all my family and guests.

We all are delighted to be in Indian Ridge C.C. The support of your office during all my house repairs has been extraordinary and I know it’s not your responsibility to do that so I really want to say thank you as I get more familiar with everything.

Special thanks to Kristeen as well for all her help!

Ray & Louise Brandt

Dear Diane,

It was such a pleasure to work with you and your office associates during our listing period Indian Ridge home. As you know, the sale went quite smoothly from our perspective . . . but I am sure that there was a lot more to it going on behind the scenes. You showed a lot of courage taking this listing since we had already had 2-one year listings with different brokers from the area who failed to perform . . . and working with a 40 year veteran from the commercial brokerage business can never be easy. Thank you for persevering . . . you truly made the difference. The following paragraphs highlight some of your services that really impressed me.

Your knowledge of the Indian Ridge market as well at the entire Desert Market is amazing. It is evidenced in your quarterly publications as well as your in-depth statistical analysis.

When you asked for listing modifications, you presented measurable and documented stats that thoroughly justified the need for listing modifications . . . no frivolous changes requested that would make it easier for you and would end up reducing the value proposition for us.

Your Staff is very well trained and has that same “can-do-attitude” that you carry with you to each meeting . . . this is very important. You nor your team ever rejected our ideas about changes to your marketing. Ideas were always treated respectfully and thoroughly discussed and implemented with mutual understanding and agreement.

Your involvement and knowledge of the “ins and outs” of Indian Ridge was extremely helpful to both us and the potential buyers.
Thank you again for a job well done.

Ray Brandt

Bill & Lori

Dear Diane,

With regards to the service you and your team provided, Lori and I were very satisfied with all aspects of the process. We appreciated spending the first day with you when you provided a number of homes and communities for our consideration. This helped eliminate the communities we did not find attractive and focused on the preferred ones.

We feel we are in the right community and have purchased a home that we are excited about. Your understanding of the market value of our home was critical in the offer process and I believe provided a competitive advantage.

Buying a home in California is a much more complicated process than in Canada. The number of forms and documents required to purchase a home was surprising to us but you and your staff were of great assistance and gave us confidence we would eventually purchase the home. We want to give special recognition to Kristeen who answered all of our questions (sometimes twice!) during the escrow period.

We also want to thank you personally Dianne for the outstanding service you provided to Lori and I. You answered all of our questions and provided great advice on this purchase. We also appreciated providing service contacts and recommendations as these were very helpful to us.

We hope we will see you in the community when we begin enjoying Indian Ridge.

All the best,

Bill and Lori

Ed and JoAnn Moran

…We couldn’t be more pleased than we are regarding our home sale through you and your team. While things started out more slowly than we all anticipated through February, the level of activity became more brisk in March, with several serious buyers showing interest. The quick offer we received while we were in Las Vegas and your shepherding us through that brief successful negotiation were very much appreciated.

One of the big differences we saw between your people and earlier realtors we used in recent years in Palm Desert was the timing and consistency of feedback we received on virtually every showing, as well as from the open houses we held. Frankly, some of this information helped guide us to the decision in late February to reduce our asking price to a slightly lower price point. This probably was a factor that helped to connect with our buyer and close the sale of our home.

In talking with the buyer last week at our residence, we learned that they first identified our listing via the internet, and zeroed in on it even before they had a viewing. It was the 6th home they saw that day, and the one they were most anxious to see. Certainly your internet exposure of our listing was thorough, complete, and of very high quality. We were also very pleased with the photo presentation of our home in your printed brochure…. We’ve already recommended you to another interested homeowner, and will continue to do so.

Sincerely, Ed and JoAnn Moran

Dear Diane, Frank and Team,

Happy New Year!

I am happily ensconced in my new home at the Lakes and thought that, before too much more times passes, I should send you a thank you note for all of your help in facilitating my home purchase.

I love how Frank Montiforte immediately understands exactly what I’m looking for in a house, and doesn’t waste any time in showing me the precise sort of place that I would adore! I have worked with your team on two purchases and one sale, and because of the expertise you have all demonstrated, I am confident that everything is going to go perfectly with every transaction. Every aspect is taken care of so I don’t have to worry about anything at all!

So thanks very sincerely for making something that can often be a major headache and source of worry into a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.

Here’s wishing you tremendous success in 2015,

Neil and Karla K.

I’d like to tell you that I think you’re an amazing realtor – actually person too… I’ve had many realtors in the past, but you are the best I’ve seen – in fact, I don’t know how you could be better. Just thought I should tell you that 🙂 Neil agrees with me too!

Thanks, Karla
