"I wish I had Molly's vision when I lived in the condo that I recently sold. She did an outstanding job of making my house into a home in anticipation of selling. We had an offer within (3) days of listing and I have no doubt this was because of the d├ęcor Molly provided.

She was prompt and professional throughout the entire process.

Thank you Molly!"

"Molly is fantastic. She told us exactly what we needed to do in order to sell our house, got us a great return on investment on our remodel, and helped us negotiate top dollar for our house. She also found us our new place faster than expected and worked out the timing beautifully. Use her staging expertise as well!"



"Molly helped me with purchasing a rental property and subsequently finding tenants. The rental property needed rehab work and Molly was helpful in making suggestions as to what improvements would make the property more marketable to potential tenants. I am a remote client (live in another state than where my rental property is located) so it's great to know that I have local "eyes and ears" on the ground that I can turn to with real estate questions. I know Molly has my best interests at heart!"

"Molly recently helped my husband and I purchase our first home. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, the process, and helped us to really understand as first time home buyers. Molly allowed us to see all the options we were interested in, got us into listings, and helped us to know what to negotiate for. Thank you so much to Molly for all her real estate expertise."
