“Brittney provided exceptional service when we needed it most. Being 2000 miles away makes it difficult to purchase a home, especially in neighborhoods we’ve never been too. She was honest, punctual and very responsive. During the closing process she was detailed and made sure everything was taken care of so we could focus on moving. I also liked the Houston properties team online portal to find homes. Providing a shared online resource to review homes rather than sending Zillow links. We love our home. Highly recommend!!” - Mychal Zito (Google Review)
