“My husband and I met Irene at one of her houses and we all just hit it off well. We had been looking a home on Cape Cod 3 years, after speaking with Irene about what we were looking she hit the ground running and NEVER stopped. Irene was sending us homes on her site every day and after about 2-3 months she found us a home, actually two but the first one was bought out from under us. Irene guided us all the through the closing and is still helping us with the renovation we're doing. If I knew Irene before the 3 years I was looking we would have had a home long ago.” — Bought a Single Family home in July 2019 | Yarmouth Port, MA.

"Awesome!! She became a friend during this journey. Someone I counted on and was always there.
Irene worked with my crazy work schedule. Not always easy. Working during a pandemic was challenging but Irene was steady as a rock. She said she would walk me through this and she did. I lovingly refer to Irene as a "pit bull with lipstick". Don’t let the manicured nails and cute clothes fool you. This lady knows her stuff.
Although I’m thrilled with my new home, it was bittersweet to not have her or her team to talk to as often now. Irene pulled an amazing group of people to assist me. They got it done!!!"
"Irene was amazing. She was a great friend and asset in understanding what we ultimately wanted. Her insights into neighborhoods, red flags on properties, and the great work ethic made the process so informative. She was readily available for any question and was the fighter in our corner when we needed her. I couldn't have asked for anything more from a real estate agent. She was a super hero." — Bought a Couple Home | Boston, MA
