"Adrean was extremely helpful, friendly, and very patient with us. She explained the entire process in great detail, did a fantastic job showing the house, and even offered to help to watch our dog while showing the house. We felt that she was always looking out for our best interests. Once the house was sold she also helped us find a short-term rental in the area. Incredible service. Thank you so much Adrean!"
