Nice notes about us

"Caryn Rightmyer devoted countless hours to each phase of the sale process of my parents' home, from preparation to closing. As problems came up, she was diligent and patient to resolve them. We are grateful for how she attended to our needs with care, concern, and competency. I highly recommend that you consider her for your realty needs." - Dr S Webb
I have worked with Judy Holland on three different transactions in the last three years. Judy was with us each step of the way whether buying our new "forever" home or selling our home of over twenty years. All transactions occurred without a hitch. I gladly recommend Judy to friends and family.” – K. McKeage

“Caryn has sold two different properties for me very quickly, and has the utmost of professionalism. She truly knows the market and how to gauge changing trends.” – J. Estren
“Realtor Judy Holland was simply terrific. What we liked best was the fast responsiveness — all of our calls and texts were returned quickly, and we received prompt information on any showings or Open Houses. Judy and her colleagues provided strong price guidance and “held our hands” through the whole process. Much of it was mysterious to us, so this knowledge and professionalism proved to be vital.” - A&B Corty
"From the first conversation to discuss the listing, to the final signature on closing, Caryn and Judy were outstanding to work with. We had somewhat of a complicated situation, and they made it a seamless experience for us. Caryn managed every aspect of getting our house "market-ready" and the team was an enormous help in ensuring the house was secure, cared for, and well-maintained in our absence. They treated our sale as they would have treated the sale of their own homes. Regular, detailed updates, thoughtful discussions, and their reliability in tracking down needed cleaners and repair-staff are only a few examples of the support they provided. We cannot say enough to highly recommend this team, and we wouldn't list with anyone else." -D. MacLaren
"My experience with Judy Holland and Caryn Rightmyer selling my home on Pass-a-Grille was outstanding! Judy and Caryn were always professional and prepared. They are extremely knowledgable, detail oriented, and real problem solvers. They were always quick to respond to my needs and were there for me every step of the way!!" - K. Galaher
"I had an ideal experience with Caryn in buying my first property! She worked so incredibly hard for me, and it was very reassuring as a first-time buyer to have someone who had my best interest at heart on my team. Caryn is a phenomenal realtor and I highly recommend her!"- K. Lawner
"We were very pleased with our experience working with Judy Holland. She is an incredibly knowledgeable and professional realtor. Throughout all of our dealings with Judy she responded quickly and communicated well. When and issue arose with our closing, Judy went above and beyond to make sure the deal went through. You cannot go wrong using her as your realtor, whether you are buying or selling a home." --E. Eichenbaum
