Our clients are awesome

and here is what they are saying

Highly likely to recommend

“I first met Penny at a showing for a property she was selling almost two years ago. I was impressed enough that I started to work with her in selling my country home first and then finding and purchasing a new home for me. Throughout it all, Penny was professional, very understanding, helpful, not pushy, and above all honest. She sold my home at an excellent price and got a good deal for my new home before someone else had a chance to outbid me. The entire experience was excellent in every respect. And, I gained a friend.”

“Penny was absolutely invaluable in helping us purchase our new home in a really tight time crunch this past summer. She was extremely responsive, kept us informed, and made us feel confident during every step of the home-buying process. If you're looking to purchase your dream home in this hot KW market, I would not hesitate in recommending Penny for her amazing insight, real estate knowledge, and customer service!”

“Penny helped us in securing our dream home last year and went above and beyond at each turn. She not only made sure we got the home we had been searching with her strategic bidding, but she also faciliated the sale of 2 homes for us. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and marketing strategies really blew us away and we were very pleased with the end results on the sale of our homes. We were a unique situation - a multigenerational living setup, so Penny had 3 adults to please, which I'm sure wasn't easy! But she did a great job and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Penny to anyone selling or purchasing a home.”

“As a real estate skeptic, I went into speaking with Penny calculating value in my head along the way. At every step, Penny went above and beyond our expectations with surprises left and right on how she demanded exposure. Penny is 5+ stars in professionalism, the expectation for quality, hunger to be the best at her craft, and something very important to us, and an excellent communicator. I would and have suggested Penny to all those in the market to sell or buy.”

“I was very fortunate to be able to find Penny as an agent for the purchase of a house, and we had a very pleasant cooperation during the whole purchase process. What impressed me most was Penny's reliability, professionalism and diligence. She is completely loyal to the interests of her clients. On the one hand, she transmits market information and procedural knowledge in detail; on the other hand, she fully considers many negligible details for us; Penny is an expert in the real estate field, and her expertise is reflected in business processes, laws and regulations , House structure, decoration and even materials. From finding housing, evaluating and comparing, quotation negotiation, contract drafting, signing, and closing the house, Penny is always energetic, diligent and punctual. Almost on call. I have lived in the new home recommended by Penny for nearly three years and I am very satisfied with everything. Special thanks to Penny, and wish her other clients can achieve their ideal goals smoothly.”

“Penny is a dream to work with. If I saw a listing first (or in one case, drove by a "Coming Soon" sign and reached out to Penny), her first question was "when do you want to see it?". If I had any questions at all, she answered them immediately. Penny is professional, bright, charming, caring, and a pure joy to work with. The brochure that she made for the home she sold for us was gorgeous and she busted her behind for me on my new home. I turned to her for advice and she gave it candidly and professionally, at the same time, not over-stepping or telling me what to do. I cannot speak more highly of Penny and her team and would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to sell their home or buy their new home! Penny is the BEST!!!! Annette is truly a joy to work with! Every time I had a question, she answered promptly, followed up and basically made sure that I had all the information I needed. Buying (and selling) a home can be both exciting and stressful but with The Penny and Annette Dream Team..... I have only felt the excitement and none of the stress! These ladies ROCK!!!!”
