"What can I say about Harriett and Team .. Amazing, professional, caring are a few items I could use to describe her and team .. I first met Harriet as a friend of mine had referred her to me to manage my rental property... if I had only found her sooner. She rented my property easily and took care of everything! She then sold that property for me in Two weeks .. wow and at asking price.. she then helped me with the sale of my moms home when she passed away.. Harriet always made each transaction easy and seem less. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lady.. she also has the most caring and professional staff .. I would chose her everytime.. thank you Harriett , Maritza and Lisandra"Julie Patterson
Harriet was instrumental in helping me rent out my condo at an attractive market rate. She also helped me quickly resolve various issues I had related to repairs and finding new tenants. Harriet was always reliable and honest during this process and it is always a pleasure when speaking and interacting with her.Luis Castro
We first reached out to Harriet and her team 2 years prior to ever even buying a home. I had a small house that my family was quickly outgrowing and I wanted to see what our options were. Harriet came out, took a look at our house and gave us an idea of what options were available to us. It was not the right time to either rent of sell the property and Harriet was extremely understanding of that decision and promised to keep in contact with us which she absolutely did. Fast forward 2 years later we were finally in a place to rent our house out and purchase a new home. Harriet immediately met with us to explain how this process would work. She was extremely knowledgable about the current market and rental fees for homes in our neighborhood. She then introduced us to her teammate Maritza who took us to countless homes and was very patient with us. I spoke with Maritza several times a day and started to see her more like a close family friend than our realtor. When we finally found "our house" Maritza guided us on this process and quickly placed our first home up for rent. Amazingly Harriet and Maritza rented our house in 2 days!!!! Both Maritza and Harriet did such an amazing job from start to finish of this process we decided to have them manage our property! I have recommended them to several co-workers and will continue to do so. I cannot say enough positive things about their overall knowledge and patience.The Jaramillo Family
