Median Sales Prices Set February Records Closed Sales Were Virtually F
After dealing with a couple previous agents I was to the point of giving up - but then DJ came along. She did an awesome job of staging and marketing my house and had more activity in the first couple weeks than I had in months with the previous agents. I couldn't have sold it without her. She was great at communicating. After every showing I got feedback about what they liked and didn't like which was great at helping me resolve things that to me weren't an issue but that were to home buyers. She even tolerated my rants about "why would anyone want plain white walls". I can't recommend DJ enough if you are selling your house. She is very professional and gets the job done."
