"Anissa is relentless on your behalf. She is the utmost in competence - she's quick, efficient, but thorough, leaving no detail left uncovered. She was patient with us when we were unsure about our readiness to buy and was responsive to our requests. She answered all our questions patiently and fully. She listened attentively as we got to know each other, and that showed when she found us exactly what we'd been looking for. "Just trust me," she said. We saw the house and made an offer the next day - she was right - and advised us every step of the way thereafter. I would highly recommend her." - Travis

"Anissa is amazing! At each phase in the home buying process she was thoughtful and really got to know what we were looking for. She was persistent and communicative in helping us find our home and guided us through the buying process wonderfully. This was our first time doing this and we’ll definitely reach out to Anissa should we sell/buy in the future!"
