Over the years Liz has helped me my family and closest friends. On the sale of an income property she helped me see and decide exactly how much work to do and how much money to spend giving my house a face-lift. She had great referrals for painting staging and carpentry work. I felt like I was working with a team of professionals who cared a lot about my bottom line and gave me upfront quotes and information. And then as the offers came in she expertly negotiated and countered and I was very happy with the outcome. -Abigail
Liz helped me sell my mother's house after her death. I hope to express adequately how helpful and present she was for me at this difficult time. She talked me through the process at every step from requesting the relevant trust documents to advice about staging and repairs to talking to my relatives when appropriate. There were no questions she couldn't answer and I felt I was in expert hands. I would highly recommend her services and plan to use her for my future real estate transactions. -Abraham G.
