Rebecca & Ian Olgeirson

“When I first met Dee she immediately gave me confidence
that she was the right Realtor for me. She was
very professional, knowledgeable and focused on what
I wanted - results. When it was time to prepare my
house for sale Dee and her team staged the house and
helped me with a number of contractors to make sure
I had a quality product. Dee's pre-inspection was also
a big help. It identified a number of problems that we proactively
addressed before they became issues in a negotiation. Dee and
her team took on the majority of the effort to organize the contractors
and get the work done on time. Ultimately, my house
was under contract within a week of going on the market.
Working with Dee was a wonderful experience that got the
results I wanted.”

Kyle Duffy

“Thanks for everything, Dee. You and Steve have
been nothing short of terrific in this whole
process. There'll be a day when the market will
make things easier, because I know for a fact how
hard you worked in this market to put the shine
on the ‘old lady’ so she could attract a suitor!”

Ronald Litvak

“Dave and I enjoyed working with you because you handled the
whole process with such professionalism and ease. I appreciated
the TLC through the decisions along the way and during closing.”
