I wouldn't be able to say enough positive things about Annie to do her level of competency justice. Most importantly I have recommended her to both my family and friends.
Here is a brief summary of the market and why you can make your life a lot easier, transaction a lot smoother, and the entire process better with Annie.
She takes a detailed, analytical, and thoughtful approach to her clients. Annie will find those things you cannot clearly articulate and incorporate them into the process. What this means is that after spending a little time with her the quality of the properties she puts in front of you (in terms of your desires) is outstanding.
She can effectively handle difficult negotiations and people. Let's face it whether you're a home buyer or seller it's a big decision and has transactional significance. When it comes time to make a deal she will help you navigate and get to a better outcome.
She cares and takes pride in her work. Nothing else need be said here.
The bottom line is this. You can spend your time looking at properties with agents who just what to "churn and burn" clients until you yourself are burned out....or you can spend your time with Annie looking at your future home.
