From Sona:

Real estate agents are like pilots: they control turbulence. Transactions are stressful, and they involve a lot of ups and downs.

One of the most important ways we make it easy?
Tell us how you want the information conveyed to you. Email? Phone? Texting? Face-to-face? Google Hangouts? Facetime? IM? Whatever system you are most comfortable with, that’s where we’ll be. Plus, we’ll give you a timeline of all events/deadlines you will hit during the transaction. I pride myself on throwing as few surprises as possible at the buyer/seller.

Here is a map of places we have served as a buyer’s agent or sellers agent.
