Highly recommend her!

First time I met Esther was at a charming open house she hosted. That apartment sold almost immediately. When I
decided to sell my home the only person I could think of was Esther. True to form she was professional, charming,
and ethical. She has a strong work ethic and is tireless to make sure the job gets done. From finding a lawyer for me
to finding a mortgage broker for the buyer..., it was not an easy process. Somehow Esther made selling my home feel

Esther is very professional and proactive. She gets things done quickly and is responsive to all questions. She
always has her clients best interest at hand. For example, after we completed our home inspection, Esther suggested
we hire certified professionals to further investigate the findings of the home inspector. At first, we were reluctant
because of the cost involved. Esther explained how important it was for us to know what we were buying and that
doing these additional inspections would give of peace of mind. Thankfully we did! The inspections revealed that the
house we were about to buy had over $50,000 in imminent repairs!!! We were able to negotiate with the sellers and
purchased our dream home at a price that was fair. Esther saved us thousands of dollars and years of headaches as
new homeowners. We knew exactly what we were buying and were at peace with our purchase! We highly
recommend Esther. Please consider her for your next purchase or sale. You will be glad you did!!

Keith and Esther were the best thing to have happened to us during our first home buying experience. As a first time
buyer we had sometimes conflicting and confused requirements, a uniquely inflexible timeline and lots of unknowns.
Still, at the end of it, if I can think back and feel that I was always under control and I took the best decision under the
circumstances then it's thanks in a large part to Keith and Esther. They had a way of never putting any pressure on
us but always guiding us towards our good subtly, with never a you-are-wasting-our-time air around them. They were
always available and responsive and when I say "always" it usually meant later than 9-10pm for them. Since we were
out of state they coordinated everything for us - from inspections to driving me around open houses to even our loan
and escrow processing. They followed up with our lenders quite diligently when the process was being delayed a bit.
We started out buying a home and in the process have won us good friends. I would recommend Keith and Esther in
a heartbeat to anyone willing to take our opinion.
