    “We had never worked with Brittany before, and most recently had used a friend of ours for our daughter’s home purchase, so our expectations were very high. We had criteria we wanted in a new home and you might say we were a bit picky! We listed out all of our criteria and asked Brittany to see what she could find. We literally had a choice of homes to pick from and proceeded to make an offer on one. Brittany worked diligently over the weekend to secure the proper bid for us and we got the contract. Brittany was fabulous the whole way through. She is very connected in the REALTOR® community, is part of a high reputable team, and goes over and above to get things done. She is awesome!“
