So I was basically daydreaming at this open house, however am thankful we stopped in! Began working with Penny right away as I was on a short timeline to get out of our temporary rental. She was always available and always showed us homes in our preferred area. Homes were selling in a day or less for cash, so it was frustrating at times.

I have already referred some friends who she found a home for as well."
