"Renting out a home is a draining process and, while there are a million things that can go wrong, Elizabeth ensured that every step went smoothly for us and we had a tenant in there within three days of listing! She proved to be extremely knowledgeable with the current housing market and was able to promptly answer the many questions that we had. She was very open and honest with us and was able to, not only point out issues that might lose us potential tenants, she provided solutions for them as well! She is an amazing real estate agent, and a great person who truly cares for her clients and their best interests. Elizabeth is a true asset to have during the real estate process - we would recommend her without reservation and will be definitely be using her again!"
