Claire is simply the best person to shepherd me into home ownership that I could have asked for. She has knowledge of the region and experience in spades, which make her an extraordinarily trustworthy resource for the search, the negotiations, the inspections, closing, and beyond. Claire was responsive at every step: she assuaged every fear, was generous with her time and regional knowledge, listened to and honored my concerns, dealt with unexpected surprises and a variety of personalities in the most professional and prompt manner. Claire has an uncanny ability to balance a listening ear and the practical needs of the home purchase process – she always knew exactly when to step in and say, “Hey, I hear ya, but my experience has shown me that actually our best next step will be X”. I simply cannot recommend Claire highly enough. If I ever decide to sell, she’ll be my first call!
