  • "Edita is FABULOUS!!! After we parted ways with a previous real estate agent, within 1 day she called us. We were so impressed that she contacted us so quickly. We within a week interviewed her & hired her on the spot. She is very organized, knowledgeable, her follow up is impeccable & she sold our house quickly. I will totally recommend her in the future & we hope to remain friends with her in a social way. She is a go getter & that is what we love about her. You should be grateful to have her on your staff.
