"I had never tried to sell a house before, and Mimi was immensely helpful and knowledgeable. She found wonderful people to help with the estate sale. After the house was empty, Mimi used her extensive knowledge and network to find the best people to get the house in great shape to sell. I had no concerns whatsoever in just." - Katherine Gann
