WHO YOU WORK WITH MATTERS

Raving Fans...

"I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me buy and sell my first home. She was extremely patient with me learning the lingo and asking a lot of questions, always taking the time to explain things in layman's terms. Melinda was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process and I absolutely recommend her to anyone!"

-raganr2000 - Seller

"Alicia was amazing helping me secure my first home. Not only will I use her again in the future but, I'll recommend her to all my friends. Fast, responsive and got me the deal with the seller I was looking for on the new purchase."

-Rob Elilott - Buyer Fairfield, CA

"Paul is awesome, we can't thank him enough for all the hard work, dedication and time he spent in selling our home (for over asking) and finding our dream home. He made it easy in a very difficult market, we very much appreciate it. We most definitely would suggest him to anyone we know who is selling or wanting to purchase a home, we were lucky to have him as a Realtor."
