We have used Judy Three times To sell our houses, I cannot say enough how much we loved having Judy as our realtor to help us sell our homes. She is extremely patient, She explains everything step by step. We could ask a million questions and Judy always had answers for us. Everything was always real smooth and stress free for us. In the three times we used Judy there was never a time we called that she didn’t pick up or call us right back. You definitely can’t find a better realtor in the area.
I’ve been thinking about what to write in this review, and then my wife said: “everyone needs a Judy” and she is absolutely right! When we were getting our house ready to sell, Judy didn’t tell us what we _wanted_ to hear, but we we _needed_ to hear. Her knowledge of the local market and no-nonsense approach helped us sell quickly at the right price. She has also helped us navigate two home purchases. So be sure to call her when you need a Realtor, because everyone needs a Judy!
...Over the years, my husband and I have bought 12 houses and sold 11. Even though we were out-of-state for this closing, it was one of the smoothest, easiest closings we’ve ever had, all thanks to Judy. She worked hard on our behalf to move things along quickly and to remove any obstacles that arose. She proved to us that not only is she very competent but she also genuinely looks out for her client's best interests.

How Do I Interview An Agent?
Questions to Ask When Interviewing Real Estate Agents As A Seller:
How long have you been in business? Aim for agents with at least two years of experience, and enough time to learn the ropes and finesse their marketing and selling plans. Time (on the job) is money (in your pocket).
How many houses did you sell last year? Look for agents with double-digit sales.
What percentage of your listings do you sell? Ideally, you want an agent who has sold an average of 60% to 80%.
What is the average list price to actual sales price ratio for your listings? This can fluctuate by market, but you should still look for high numbers.
How will you market my home? An agent should use at least a good brokerage website to showcase your listing, national listing portals such as MLS, Realtor.com, etc., and an email subscription list.
How will you use social media? They should use at least Facebook; they get bonus points if they post photos on Instagram.
What offline materials do you use? While most marketing is done online now, your agent should still make use of tried-and-true methods such as fliers, yard signs, and brochures, especially at an open house.
How much do you spend on advertising? Advertising costs vary widely by area, but agents should consistently spend a portion of their business expenses on advertising. By asking for a set amount, you’ll know if they’re doing that or not.
How Much House Can You Afford?
Another easy way to get a sense of how much you can comfortably pay in monthly mortgage payments is to approach a mortgage lender and apply for mortgage pre-approval. That’s where the lender will take a look at your income, debt, credit score, credit report, and other factors of your financial past to determine how much money it’s willing to loan you to buy a home.
Note: If you’re not sure what your credit score is or why it matters, here’s a quick crash course: A credit score is your track record paying off any past debt you’ve had on credit cards or college loans. The better your credit score, the better your odds of landing a great mortgage. (You can check your credit score for free at CreditKarma.com.) If your payment to debt sources has had some rough patches via late or missing payments, this could stand against you. The good news? If you take care of past debt and make your monthly payments on time, you can improve your credit score over time.
Mortgage pre-approval doesn’t just tell you exactly how big your monthly mortgage payment can be. As a bonus, pre-approval also makes you a more attractive buyer to home sellers, since they know you have financing to back up your offer.
