"Lesa has been such a great help in our 1st Home buying. We were moving here from out of state and were unsure of property values, locations and the over all process. We also had tight schedules because of the distance, but she's there for you! She took the time to understand what we were looking for, did the legwork and made the necessary arrangements fast. She made our decision so much easier than I thought was possible when we first started. She's educated on the market, responds quickly to all my questions, helped us find that perfect home and I would highly reccommend her to any one that may be buying or selling."
