"Tami and Michelle were very helpful in the difficult processes of selling my Mother-In-Laws home. We were looking for someone aggressive and that is what we got, I was impressed with Tami from the phone! She was great in setting up getting the house "show ready" as we had to go back to Michigan and leave the details to her and Michelle, we were not disappointed. We asked for a few pictures to be moved around on Zillow and Michelle took care of it right away. I liked how the team worked together to take care of all our needs. (We had a few) I would highly recommend Tami and her team and am confident they will take great care of you, just as they did us. "
