I never felt pressured to make a decision in haste. Polly was always available to answer any of my questions or help me work through a decision.

Polly was great and guided me through the whole home selling process. She is patient, reliable and knowledgeable. As someone who has not sold a house and moved in over 20 years, Polly's seasoned experience and advice was invaluable. I was completed satisfied.Steve Zalewski
Polly was fantastic in our home sale. First, she coached us in market as well as the the of timing, staging and price point of our house. Her guidance kept us on task and her timing was absolutely on target for putting our home on the market. The house was under contract in two days. After that, Polly showed herself as a true professional in handling a difficult agent for buyers who combined had little regard for the sale process acting in an entitled way right up to the closing. However, Polly handled them with professionalism and courtesy while keeping our interests in mind the whole time. We wholeheartedly recommend Polly as a broker.Fred Cushmore
