"Lourdes is the best Real state agent I have work with. She was patient , kind, and understanding with all of my situation. She was the best most reassuring agent I ever have work with. I would work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Lourdes for all you did for me and my family!" - Blanca G.
"Lourdes was exceptional in all of what I call the three important areas of a real estate transaction: preparation (she provided a great list of comps and price histories for my neighborhood), negotiation (read both the buyers and the current sales environment to get me more than I anticipated) and follow-through (she stayed on top of the deposits and closing process to ensure a smooth finish). I've bought and sold homes in 4 different states, so my expectations were high. She exceeded them in every aspect of the transaction." - Thomas B.
"Professional broker supporting purchase of my home process from market research till close, who is the member of HomeAdvantage program. It was pleasure to work with Lourdes!" - Marek P.
"Lourdes has been patient and flexible with us since we began looking for places nearly two years ago. Even though it turned out I didn't qualify for anything on the market when we first started looking, she kept in touch with me and was immediately available after my financial situation changed. I never felt pressured to settle for a property we weren't comfortable with, and she made it clear that she would help us out for as long as it would take to find a place we loved in a good location." - Jennifer B.
"- Lourdes was amazing! From the first contact we had over email we could tell that she was a first-class professional. She listened very carefully to our needs and wants and we were able to find a place we are very happy with. She was patient, kind, warm, knowledgeable, thorough, and very generous with her time. Not a single question we had went unanswered, either immediately or in a follow up email within a few minutes. She also provided us with great tips for living in the area, from restaurants to car buying. Thank you, Lourdes!" - Jose Ramon F.
"- Lourdes is amazing! She is patient, kind, thorough, a fabulous listener, and incredibly gracious at the same time. She truly knows how to do her job with confidence. Finding a new home can become a stressful situation, and Lourdes really makes it very pleasant." - Jennifer T.
