Her knowledgeable experience was paramount

Carolyn was our listing agent for a condo sale in downtown San Francisco. She was very professional and communicative throughout the process. Her knowledgeable experience was paramount in ensuring a smooth sale, and the go-to-market strategy was well executed. We are very happy with both the price and the timeliness of our sale.
