Cory and Mary were not just the best real estate agents we could have asked for, but true partners to us during our home buying process. From our very first meeting, they made us feel heard and that they were invested in finding the right home for us. They always listened to our feedback and never made us feel pressured, but were equally proactive about sending us listings, options and ideas. They have a true talent for painting the vision of what a house could or couldn't be, always honest and candid with us about what they thought. We are new to the area so they spent the extra time educating us on the nuances of the market, giving us context and perspectives on specific neighborhoods, and sharing abundant information on other considerations like schools and beach access. Once we found the right house, they worked tirelessly through a 14 day close during the holidays and proved to be master negotiators. They were on top of every detail and made a stressful process as easy for us as possible. After the deal closed, they remained a true partner to us, sharing their personal contacts and referrals to get the work needed done, done quickly and with quality. They continue to be a resource to us as Orange County experts and their knowledge of the area is seemingly endless. We won't ever be able to thank them enough for their time, investment and patience, and consider them both friends for life. Anyone would be lucky to work with this stellar team!
