Lucy helped us navigate through a short sale to a successful closing. An accomplishment to be proud of! She's a real professional and has the experience and contacts to get the job done. All parties were able to walk away from this experience knowing that we got top notch service and a win- win result. DJJB
Lucy is not only a remarkable real estate lady, but a true friend. She was patient with us, especially because we couldn't afford much...BUT she found us our castle and we never go a day without feeling extremely lucky. Lucky to have met Lucy and lucky to have found our dream home through Lucy - she is a hard worker.
Thanks Lucy from the bottom of our hearts and we'll always recommend you
I'm a real estate broker myself, and what I value the most in a REALTOR is blunt honesty. Lucy didn't exaggerate the value of my property to get me to list with her, as so many other agents do. She told me exactly what it's worth, and guess what -- that's what I got for it!

Whether representing buyers or sellers Lucy gives you a 100% effort and strives to always do the best for her customers. ---------Scott Stephens
