"We had moved to the area in 2011 from the city and I wish we had Holly working with us then. When we decided we needed more space we asked friends and co-workers who to work with and Holly's name kept coming up. So we contacted her and she helped find us a new home in the area we wanted, but also helped sell our old home within two weeks for a fair price. She was extremely knowledgeable on the market, the school systems, negotiations, and developing a selling strategy including staging and price point, resulting in a smooth purchase and sale. She never was aggressive or pushy and always put our best interests ahead of any transaction. She took our calls day or night. We would definitely use her expertise again."

"We were truly lucky to have Holly guide us through our first home buying experience. She knew both the neighborhoods and the properties thoroughly. Holly tailored everything exactly to our wishes, but never hesitated to offer her expert observations which were priceless: Her knowledge brought us insights into the past and potential future of the property that we would never have been able to gain without her. She knew exactly the right approach when it came time to make an offer, and thanks to her we had a smooth buying process all the way through closing. Holly is a delight to work with! She was very responsive from first contact to closing and still keeps in touch. Holly made each step easy to understand, and ensured the whole nerve wracking experience was as carefree as I can ever imagine it being."

"Holly was highly recommended to us by a friend, and we could not be more grateful. As first time home-buyers, we felt absolutely confident because of Holly's guidance, expertise, and knowledge. Holly made the process very personal and tailored to our needs, wants, schedule, and whims. She knew all of the towns we were looking in inside and out and even had information about particular neighborhoods. She was neutral in all the right moments and asserted her observations and advice in all the right moments. Holly was always quick to respond to a call, text or email. When it came time to make an offer, Holly's experience negotiating was fantastic. Holly was such an integral part of our lives during the home-buying process that I can honestly say now that it's all said and done that I miss her! I would use Holly again in a heartbeat and wholeheartedly recommend her to any buyers/sellers."

"Holly was a true professional guiding us through the entire process. Her recommendations helped us stage and sell our home in a matter of weeks. We actually had so many offers within the first few days of listing that we cancelled our first open house. She also helped us negotiate the purchase of our new home. Holly held our hands through it all and still was following up months after just to make sure all was still well with us! Very knowledgeable and helpful in everyway. I'd recommend her to anyone!"
