You can feel Claudia’s integrity. The buyer had other great offers, well above asking price, but they accepted my offer. Only one reason: Claudia. She’s authentic, intelligent, personable, reliable, a careful listener, positive and focused, knowledgeable and strategic, has great taste, and she understood exactly what I was looking for. Everything she showed me was perfectly within my taste. Spending time with her is a pleasure and it couldn’t have gone better.– Francine K.
