Buyer & Seller Testimonials

Lori Dunham,
I highly recommend Lori Dunham. We worked with Lori about 10 years ago when we bought our first house.  She listened to us and helped us find the perfect home for our needs.  It was well within our budget (less than the competition) and had a great garden.  Over the years she has been a friend and has shared resources with our amazing drywall man!

We are now getting ready to sell our home as we are moving out of state.  We have been working with Lori to prepare our house for the market.  She gave us great advice on where to focus our time and money for the best return on our investment.  She also has a steady supply of great packing boxes which she delivers to us as we need them...all free of charge.


Jim Pankiewicz,
My wife and I worked with Jim Pankiewicz as both the listing and sales agent for our home.  During this time, we found him to be honest, hard working, and effective.

Jim’s extensive knowledge of property values and market conditions enabled us to get the best price.  During the listing and sale, Jim communicated with us regularly.  His creative marketing techniques brought us results.  It was a pleasure to work with this competent professional; I highly recommend him.

To Whom It May Concern

I cannot recommend Jim as your agent unless you are serious about listing or buying a new home.  In the past I had worked with an agent for over nine months without getting any offers.  When I hired Jim my home sold within a few months.  Jim is a straight shooter, and if you want solid honest answers for common questions of: what is my home worth, how the market is, and what will it take to sell my home, he is your man.  He is always pro-active on getting feedback from agents and prospective buyers to help determine what is necessary to get your home is sold.

Jim was extremely patient in helping me find my new home and has an excellent grasp once you have told him the type of home you wish to purchase.  I had numerous homes to look at based on my broad price range and large target area.  Once I started to narrow down my parameters for a new home, providing Jim with specific features I could not live without, we began to narrow down the choice to a select few.  More importantly at this point Jim knew exactly the type of home I wanted but would not show me a home(s) simply to help close the sale.  If he felt a home was close but lacked an item or two which I flagged as high-priority item, he would not waste my time showing me the house.

I can honestly say that Jim treated me as though I was his only customer.  There was never a time Jim failed to return my calls, answer any e-mails or state any issues that surfaced during the selling and purchasing of my new home in a timely manner.  I was a bit concerned to list and buy from an agent who wasn't with something of a "Big Box Company" (Century 21, Coldwell Banker etc.) but this was never an issue in any way, shape, or form.

I have purchased and sold several homes and can say without any reservations that Jim is a professional, friendly, and nose to the grindstone type of guy.  He will get you results where others don't even come close.  You will not regret hiring him as your agent to either list or purchase a home.



Teresa Numrich,
Teresa helped me buy my dream house through a contingent offer.  She patiently looked at dozens of houses with me, successfully negotiated the sale of my condo which was in litigation with the developer and ensured the best price for my beautiful home.  Her patience, local knowledge and real estate acumen are invaluable traits that ensure I will use her again...that is, if I ever want to leave my lovely old home.  Thank you Teresa!

Patricia Winn,
Buying or selling - Patricia is Realtor Extraordinaire.  She recently helped me with the sale of my home in Brier.  No matter what, no matter when, if I needed help, advice or just a shoulder, Patricia was really there for me.  She is energetic, positive and a great negotiator.  Many things about her make her easy to deal with, but I loved the fact that if something needed to get done or fixed or cleaned or whatever, she had a referral for me and her "people" were honest, thorough, and reasonably priced - HUGE ASSET for me! Every little bump or deadline was quickly handled or addressed and she made my part in the whole process seem effortless.  Most important of all - I feel that Patricia is someone who can be trusted to always keep her clients best interest in mind.

Patricia Winn....
“After our December Purchase on our brand new home, not only could we be happier with the best house for our new life together as a married couple, with a baby on the way but we couldn't have been happier with the process of getting us into our new home!  My husband is rather knowledgeable about how well houses are built and all that goes into them, and I am rather impatient and like to see every single house out there!  So with us, we had a TON of homes to look at and Patricia was incredibly patient, took us at the drop of a hat to see anything we wanted, wherever it may be, and she sent us daily updates of any houses that popped up that were in our search criteria.  Seeing the numerous amounts of homes that we did, the one that Patricia said in the very beginning was the greatest for us; we ended up buying anyway and got everything we wanted in the house since she fought for us back and forth!  She is not only so talented at her job, but she is really a good person that speaks to everyone respectfully and gets the job done.  Everyone else that I have referred her to says nothing but great things and in the end feels like a close friend!  Take my word, and go with an honest business woman that will get the job done.”

Patricia Winn....
Patricia is one of most professional, committed and knowledgable realtors we've dealt with.  She delivers exceptional customer service and makes the process of locating and purchasing a home a most pleasurable experience.

We purchased our home with her assistance a few years ago.  Just before it went on the market, and before we'd even seen it, she contacted us and told she'd found our dream home.  She did all of the heavy lifting and made the experience stress free and enjoyable.  And yes, this is our dream home!

We have recommend Patricia to our friends and acquaintances and in every case their experience was the same as ours.  Excellent customer service, attention to detail and highly capable were words our friends used to describe her.  We would recommend Patricia without hesitation.
