Perry and I would like to thank you for selling our condo in Aurora.  
It was your determination and driven attitude that sold our home. You pulled all the stops with your marketing strategy  - - the open houses, the downsizing seminars and the staging all contributed to the successful results in a not so great market.
We have recommended you on multiple occasions to our friends and will continue to do so. You are a solid communicator and very professional. Congratulations on your success.

Sharon was a wonderful sales rep to work with, she always made herself available and went out of her way to help us with any questions or concerns. She is professional but also makes you feel like you've been friends forever. Mostly she cares about her clients best interests.

 Sharon is truly superb. She under-promises and over-delivers, and has an attention to detail that is wonderful. From our first meeting with Sharon all the way through to actually selling (for much more than we expected), Sharon's professionalism and experience were evident. The final sale price was both a wonderful surprise, and testimony to Sharon’s wisdom and careful planning / strategic thinking. Thank you Sharon! I have met very few people who exhibit the level of customer care and skill that you do.
