Professionalism, integrity and an expert understanding of the real estate market are the key attributes that you want to consider when enlisting the help of a real estate agent. Sheila and Dave possess all those characteristics. They have handled three real estate transactions for us. They executed the all proceedings with great aplomb and adeptness.
In addition to their own expertise, they have developed a great network of professionals that work with you to handle the various details of selling or buying a home.
Sheila and Dave are the people you want helping you with your important real estate event. We highly recommend them, and we believe you will be as satisfied as we are. - Charles and Diane Marino
Dave and Sheila are exceptional Realtors, and work extremely well as a team. They pay very close attention to details, listened to my needs/desires, and have brought countless opportunities to my attention. They also have the latest electronic software that makes the contract/escrow process smooth, quick and easy.
I have completed three transactions with them within a 6 month period, and will be working with them for many more years to come. - Wilfred and Laurie Dere
They helped me is so many ways in the purchase of my last house, from working with the seller (who was being a bit difficult), pointing me in the right direction towards financing (got a better interest rate than my own sleuthing), getting me a contractor to make some changes and they even checked on the house while I was on vacation! Can't say enough good things!!!!! - Lesley Linton
Throughout the entire process Sheila kept in constant communication with us. We could call her day or night and she would get right back to us. The process could not have gone smoother. What a pleasure it was for us to work with someone of Sheila’s professionalism. - Mike and Bambi Goodwin
Sheila never stopped working for us; a less professional agent may have given up, thinking her clients were sending her on a weeks-long wild goose chase all over the county for some unattainable Shangri La. Sheila didn’t miss a beat searching new neighborhoods far from her home office or through dealings with a less-than-savory seller’s agent. Our family was rewarded with a wonderful house Sheila found, at the right price, perfect location! - Dave Hall
You and Dave were so patient with us…your calming attitude helped to put us at ease during a potentially stressful time…you made yourselves available all the time. You are very knowledgeable. You and Dave were great! - Phil and Traci McMullen
