"She answered calls and texts in a timely manner. As first time home buyers, we were very new to the whole process. Judy guided us every step of the way; she was very knowledgeable and patient. She was willing to work around our schedules to show us houses. She answered calls and texts in a timely manner. She didn’t try to push anything on us that we weren’t looking for, and she listened to our needs and wants. Once we found the one we liked, she worked to ensure that all of the paperwork was done in a timely manner. The whole process went very smoothly, and when it was done we felt like we’d gained a friend"
