"Renee is the best Realtor we could have asked for and was such a pleasure to work with in what would otherwise be a stressful situation of selling and buying homes. From start to finish she was always professional,available and very flexible with our schedules. Renee walked us through every step of selling our current home and purchasing our next one. With her guidance we staged our house and made some very minor improvements that made a huge difference in the end. We were under contract with an above listing offer within hours of putting our home on the market! Renee worked diligently to ensure we were happy with contract terms of our sale and also tirelessly negotiated our next purchase offer. I would recommend Renee to anyone looking to buy, sell, or both!" - Lauren and Mike

"I am writing to express my gratitude and thanks for Renee's dedication to customer centered approach and 5 star-service. I want to rave about the Rock-Star service I received from Renee Stracka during the listing and sale of my condominium. Renee knows her market extremely well and was instrumental in pricing my property perfectly for the time and place. Renee was extremely diligent, checking in with me at each step of the process and explaining all of my questions professionally yet personably no matter how many times I asked the same ones. Renee knew I was nervous and under a great deal of stress while readying the property for the sale. She gave excellent feedback and the stager that she brought in was fantastic. I am convinced both of them provided me with the edge that I needed to make the property extremely competitive!We ended up with three full-price offers in three days! She clearly takes pride in doing a an excellent job, And you should take pride in having her as a representative for you. " - Arrianne
