Hi Beth-It was a pleasure working with you on this sale. You did a really excellent job--and smoothed the way with the sellers and with getting the work done on the apartment that was needed to complete the conditions of sale. [...]

Beth Freeman is experienced and is at the very "top of her game." She is a good negotiator, thorough, and honest. who knew more about what we needed than we did ourselves. Because she served us well we highly recommend her.
