“My husband and I worked with Lisa, and we had a great experience finding our first time home, which we love. Lisa really took interest in getting to know us as a couple and what we were looking for in a home. She was honest about the pros and cons of each home we toured or had interest in. We even had to put our search on hold as my husband was supposed to relocate out of Houston for work. It took over a year for us to find a home, and during the whole time, Lisa was available for us, patient, and we did not ever feel pressured to buy. Lisa provided us with objective data and her expert opinion during the process. She also helped us with negotiations. It was as stress free as a big purchase could be! Highly recommend the team and Lisa in particular.” - Monica Aceves (Google Review)
