"Penelope was absolutely amazing in negotiating the right price for my condo that she listed. She was always responsive to my questions and available whenever I needed her. I can't recommend a realtor better than Penelope. If you have a home to sell, she is your gal!"

  -Stacey F., Client

"Penelope is so wonderful to work with. She made our transition from Dallas to Minneapolis seamless. Penelope can to every showing prepared with comps and neighborhood information. We considered both building and buying a home to remodel, Penelope was comfortable with both areas. I would highly recommend her."

  -Ann O., Client

"Penelope made the whole experience of buying our first home EXTREMELY pleasant and pain free!! She went above and beyond our expectations in every aspect - she was very patient as our search took over 7 months, always keeping us up to date with new homes on the market. She always did research prior to showing us to be on top of any questions we may have. And once we chose our home to purchase, she made sure we had everything we needed for the closing. We couldn't be happier with her service. "

  -Nicole , Client

"Penelope was such a great resource in my search for a home. I was a first time homebuyer and she took the time to educate me and guide me through the entire process, it all seemed so seamless! She went the extra mile in negotiating sale price and terms on my behalf and I can't thank her enough for that. I would highly recommend Penelope to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. Not only is she extremely well educated in her industry, but she'll be a true advocate for you."

  -Laura, Client

"Penelope listed the house on Friday, held an open house on Sunday and we accepted the offer on Tuesday, after Penelope negotiated a higher offer for the house. The house was sold at the price we wanted."

  -Jim & Donna , Client

"Penelope is a very active agent, she doesn't simply list a home and wait to schedule showings. She puts a great deal of personal attention into preparing and marketing her properties, and using her channels to generate awareness and interest. I would definitely engage her again in future real estate transactions (both buy and sell side.)"
