"I entrusted Lisa Balmes to handle an extremely sensitive short sale recently. From the very beginning Lisa handled the case like a top notch professional and put my mind at ease. There were a few issues that came about during the process but being the seasoned veteran she is everything got handled efficiently. Lisa Balmes is the type of realty proffesional that provides excellent customer sevice by going above and beyond the call of duty to get the deal done. I would certainly recommend her services to both family and friends."
"Lisa is a rock star! In a matter of just a few weeks she helped us purchase a home, while finding a new broker willing to work with our unique situation. She then turned around and sold our old place in only 24 hours, encouraging us to list at an asking price above what we imagined possible! She was on task and promptly answered our questions, often before we knew to ask, and soothed our nerves with her calm, cool and collected manner. The vast list of professionals she has on her side including brokers, inspectors, movers, tree trimmers, we used without a single regret. Smiles all around when we look back on the entire process. We would not hesitate to recommend Lisa and her team."

"Lisa was recommended to us by a friend, and we were very happy with the recommendation! She is hardworking and prompt on answering questions or returning inquiries. At each viewing, she was honest about what she saw about the structure of the house, along with remodeling and resale potential. She was amazingly thorough and patient throughout the process, even with all of our nonstop questions! I'll be recommending her to anyone I know looking for a new home!"
