"Wendy helped me secure the purchase of this home and at a decent price; something I am 100% certain I would not have succeeded in doing without her. Beyond this incredible skill and talent Wendy has for negotiating, she is a wonderful person, always respectful, supportive and caring. She was patient, kind (understanding the stress of purchasing a home to live in) and completely transparent in her dealings with both myself and the seller."
