"Jackie Merlo was a steadying and pleasant broker during our first home-buying process—which we decided to take on while planning a wedding just months away. Jackie set the tone that our ambitious goal was feasible and clearly laid out the steps and timeframe, and we eventually closed on our first home with our wedding just months away. We were so lucky to work with her." - Patrick E.
