Emily is a strategic, resilient and very successful real estate agent. She is absolutely one of the best out there, and if you are looking to buy and/or sell, Emily is the agent that you want to work with. We've purchased and sold several properties with Emily over the last 3 years and I can't recommend her services enough.

Chris helped me buy my first house in this crazy market when I thought I wasn’t going to be able to find anything. He was professional, patient, honest and very informative. I was referred to Chris by family who had worked with him on multiple occasions and after working with him I can see why. I am glad to have Chris as my agent and would highly recommend Chris if you are looking for a home.

From initial discussions about listing our house right through to the sale of our house, Scott was with us every step of the way. Consistent follow ups providing up-to-date information kept us "in the know". Scott's supportive, upbeat approach along with his real estate insight has been invaluable. Without hesitation I would reach out to Scott and ask that he represent us on any future real estate endeavours. Thank you Scott!

Emily is an exceptional real estate agent with extensive industry knowledge.

Ashton is just the best. She helped us find our dream home. She was so helpful, positive and patient with us. When it came to selling our home years later, we knew there was only 1 realtor we wanted to work with...Ashton. She went above and beyond to make sure it was sold quickly and for the best price. She is truly a gem and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend to everyone.
