    Nancy knew we were apprehensive about selling our home. But she explained everything and was always available to answer questions. Her knowledge of negotiating made the process go smoothly. She was invaluable!
    Bill and Sue Bradley
    We had shopped around for a Realtor because our last experience was not pleasant. But when Nancy explained how she and her company worked with sellers – and that she was willing to put her promises in writing – it just seemed to be the way to go. And we weren’t disappointed! The sale went great and we would not hesitate to recommend Nancy!
