Our agent was not only a professional and knowledgeable agent; she was more than that on many levels. She guided us to make the best decision every step of the way. She was there to conduct a business, but also had our best interests at heart all the way through. It is never easier to go through a short sale, but she made it as smooth as it could possibly be given the circumstances. She was excellent in every way and when I am ready to buy a house, I will call my agent. Thank you for everything! - Asta Mboup
