"My agent was Anne Marie Straka. Anne Marie was the best agent for a first time home buyer. From the start, her communication was incredible. If I texted her, she responded within minutes. On multiple occasions, we were the first showings scheduled because she was so quick. On one offer, we had a showing at 6:00PM with best needed by 8:00PM, our offer was in by 7:00PM. She even showed us a house that hadn’t hit the market yet! Anne Marie was quick and also caring. She never pressured us, but always gave us valuable advice. We felt like she truly cared about us and what was best for us. When we finally got an offer accepted, Anne Marie went above and beyond in going to the Chester town hall to get any records about the house, without us asking! Anne Marie was an amazing agent and we will certainly refer her to anyone looking for a house!" -Adrienne and Max
"Anne Marie was extremely helpful and went far beyond my expectations to help us find our home as quickly and smoothly as possible. She was always available, very proactive, helped with the search when we couldn't be here in person, contacted contractors for us, made sure everything moved forward and that we knew what was happening and had the right information to hand, and was generally just a very pleasant and friendly person. She gave us and our children gifts when we closed and some tips for the area. I would certainly recommend her. -Katie E"
"In this current market we needed someone who knew the ins and outs. Lisa Rollins and her team are that group. Professional, knowledgeable and very approachable. This was a seamless sale of a property we called home for 34 years and 5 children. The compassion shown towards us was very comforting during this very emotional time. Would highly recommend them to everyone.- June H"

"Lisa Rollins and team did an exceptional job. Her attention to detail and the marketing of our property was perfectly on point and led to a sale in two days over market price. She then secured a back up offer as well. We were incredibly happy with her service and recommended her to others. -(May 2021) M.K."

Her years of experience really shows when it comes to negotiation, as she helps me get the property I want at the best possible price. I am so grateful to have Lisa in my corner. Plus, she is so much fun to work with, she's also become a dear friend. I honestly could not offer a higher recommendation to anyone. Lisa is THE BEST! -Robin C"
