"We were very lucky to have had you as our realtor! You were so kind to my parents and I want you to know that all my brothers and sisters appreciate everything you did for them"...
I got your ecard for Upson....very nice. And again, I can't thank you enough for your guidance throughout this trying and stressful process! But, in the end it all worked out....like you said it would!...
Thanks for your great work in helping us to sell our home! You were a great support to us throughout this process during days, nights, and weekends, and we appreciate you helping us to make the sale that allowed us to move into our dream home. We would be happy to provide an enthusiastic reference for use with your other clients.
Best wishes, and thanks again!

Fran exceeded our expectations in every aspect of the home buying process. Her research of the shoreline markets and available homes was extremely thorough. She was exceptionally responsive; she did not pressure us in any way; and, she was respectful but firm with other brokers. Indeed, she was committed fully to making sure we found a home that met all of our requirements. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Fran again.
