What Clients Say About Me

From the beginning until the end of the sale, I felt comfortable working with Joan and John.

They are real professionals who not only had their own buyers they were working with but found other good buyers. They brought me 3 strong offers and a Letter of Intent. We sold it in 7 months from start to finish. They stood up for me in negotiations and got me more than the asking price. Joan and John had excellent follow up and I always knew right where I stood. My buyers are doing 5% more than my projections so that makes me feel good about my decision to sell to them.
