"Dee went above and beyond to help find the right home for our family. We were moving from London so needed someone with great local knowledge. We had a number of international calls to discuss new properties coming online and created a shortlist of houses that met our criteria. My husband then flew ahead to start his new role, at which time Dee was able to drive him around all of the properties we'd agreed. We couldn't have done it without Dee and I feel very fortunate to have found her in our search. I would definitely recommend Dee, especially to families and expats. She's moved internationally herself and has children attending Westchester schools, so she gets it!"

"I am very happy and grateful to Dee for her support in finding me a house. Extremely patient and flexible, she very quickly understood what exactly I was looking for (before I did!) and was sorting out my shortlisted houses in a way that allowed us find a house we liked very quickly. Her response time is incredible, I was getting a reply from her within an hour max, regardless of the time (weekends, late hours). What I liked in particular is the fact that she gave us full leverage to choose from multiple options without imposing her opinion. I would wholeheartedly and fully recommend Dee to anybody looking for a help and my fellow expats in particular. "

"Dee was wonderful in responding to all my needs. I live in Hong Kong, so it was very important for me to have someone completely in charge of my listing. She kept me regularly updated, and went above and beyond her call of duty by liaising with painters, superintendents, management companies, as well as previous tenants. Her hard work and dedication ensured that all parties concerned were full satisfied with her service. I would recommend Dee to anyone looking for a friendly, enthusiastic real estate agent who knows the market well. "
