"I wanted to say what a joy it was to work with Bonnie! My husband and I met her when we were looking to buy our first home in 2011. She was familiar with the area we wanted to move to and was so helpful in making our first buying experience easy. We enjoyed her so much we reached out to her even though she changed companies so that she could help us sell our home. She was again, wonderful. She was always quick to respond and answered all of our questions. She addressed our concerns and gave great advice when we needed it. My husband and I plan to buy a house in about 18 months to two years, after I graduate college. When we do, we will be connecting with her again if we plan to do it in the area. I look forward to working with her again.
