Testimonial Quotes

Genna helped find a home for my daughter. She was very knowledgeable, but if she didn't have an answer, she would find out and get right back to us. She helped us find a great contractor and really stayed on top of all the concerns we had with regard to the home. Actually, Genna did such a great job with finding this home, we are going to use her as the listing agent on a townhouse we now need to sell in Crofton. A great experience. J. Schube
"Genna, you've been nothing less than diligent, patient, persistent, and professional. We appreciate you!!! Thank you" Mike & Neisha Speis
"Genna showed me various houses over almost a 2 year time period. When I would find something that I thought I might like I asked her about it and she always hit me with the exact details I need to know if it was something I wanted to see or not. As soon as I was ready to look at a property she had an appointment set up in no time. After finally finding the one she did a great job working through the process with my and the listing agent. I had complete faith in her because she always told it to me straight. It gave me so much piece of mind knowing she was taking care of things." Jonathan Griner
