Becky was very understanding and showed compassion throughout the entire process.
I will remember how this transaction brought two families so close and Alison never felt like an agent she was more like family.
Al and Lacey with Keaty helped us through every step of the process both purchasing our new home and selling our old. When things got stressful for us they remained positive and professional and helped to alleviate all of our concerns. Their expertise guided us to a closing that we couldn’t have been happier with! I cannot recommend them more!
Nicole is very patient with us and unfailing polite and respectful even when things get difficult.
Tony always went above and beyond to get us the information we requested.
Leslie Guillory is our realtor and she is the best! Like really, she is so calm and patient and smart. Buying a home can be a really scary experience and I have realized how important it is to have a smart realtor who you trust to be on your side. She really made the whole process very pleasant and non-stressful. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a realtor!
Jamie really understood what I was looking for in a new home. It was a good experience with great results.
I will remember Debbie’s constant support, she was always just a phone call away!
I did not know anything about the process and was guided and informed by Lori. She made the process easy.
I will remember all the hard work Lena put in showing us multiple properties on weekends and weeknights.
