TESTIMONIAL FOR JAMES BLACKBURN

“Katy and I had a complex and long-term real estate hurdle to get through on both the buying and selling side, and James made the impossible not only possible, but also a lot of fun. He’s a trustworthy, brilliant, witty, affable guide when you’re trying to find your home, and a focused, scarily tireless closing machine when you find what you want. I couldn’t be more appreciative of who he is, what he does, and how he does it.”

Mark O

TESTIMONIAL FOR META TIBKE

“We both highly recommend Meta Tibke. Aside from being well-organized and professional, she is also very detail-oriented, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about her field. Meta understood very quickly what we wanted in a new home by asking all the right questions; she gave us many very helpful suggestions, and was patient with us…We are so glad we found such a giving and caring individual we could trust to work with us on such an important life decision.”

Melissa T. and Donald L.

TESTIMONIAL FOR COLLEEN JELLEY

“Having dealt with many realtors from coast to coast, we wholeheartedly endorse Colleen as the best. We did all of our preliminary house hunting from afar, and Colleen was professional, courteous, responsive, and incredibly patient helping us through the process of finding exactly the home we wanted…which she did. We are incredibly lucky to have found her, and we recommend her fully.”
