- The Mitchells
We had the pleasure of working with Jonay to sell our home as well as purchase another! Her experience and knowledge of the current market made both processes easy. We were overwhelmed and Jonay handled everything! She was (and still is) patient in answering all of our questions and believe me, there were/are many. We listened and followed her advice on how to prepare our home to go on the market. It sold quickly. She has a great vision and great intuition. The entire Team is outstanding. – The Nistas
We worked with Jonay to find our new home and it was nothing less than exceptional! She was patient, well versed, and helped us over one year as we looked for the right home for our family. She understood our needs and curated homes for us to see based on listening to us. Once we found our home both her and the team treated the process with white glove service.
