Purchasing a home is a big investment, but it can also be extremely rewarding if you receive the right guidance. My objective is to be a reliable and informative resource for all my clients, whether they are first-time or experienced home buyers.

"Rachel is a true professional who is passionate about her craft. She is adventurous and willing to take chances, exploring options that opened up my eyes too so many possibilities in the search for the perfect home. Rachel is an excellent communicator and listened not only to my wants but more importantly to my needs. She was patient with the process yet every adventure was with purpose resulting in finding the perfect home within 3 days! What was most impressive was that Rachel was always fully present in the moment and focused solely on me; taking the lead thru the entire process, from finding a home, working with the lender and finishing off the process to closing. I felt as if we were true partners in the process resulting in me feeling truly valued. If I could describe Rachel in 3 words, they would be: Trustworthy, Honesty, Integrity. I actually smiled when the entire process was completed; a smile that is sometimes hard to come by….."by Alfred Mackie

"The first thing I can say is WOW, Amazing! Rachel is the epitome of what one should expect from an agent when purchasing a home. She is responsive with great communication. She is unquestionably eager to serve at her clients' pleasure, regardless of time and questions asked about the process of home ownership. She's always willing to go the extra mile. She's both personable and professional. She listens intently to your wishes and is a phenomenal negotiator for any potential buyer. Seller's beware, you're dealing with a champion!"by M Tetrick
"Where to start... buying a home is an inherently stressful process and as first time home buyers we had tons of questions and apprehension. We found Rachel through Zillow, and she was absolutely amazing! Not only does it help to have a realtor who is intimately knowledgeable about each neighborhood where you are looking to buy, but also has the insight for future values and ease of future sales. We had a lot of criteria to get us to move from our downtown apartment lifestyle to a home and Rachel easily found homes in our price range that met all of our criteria. The home we bought was on the MLS for a single day and wasn't even listed on Zillow when we toured it with her, and the second we walked in we knew it was going to be our home! Rachel was jumping up and down, so excited to show us what she found. Rachel went above and beyond during the negotiation and closing process and did a ton of work behind the scenes to make things less stressful for us. She is a super savvy real estate agent, a generous and loving person who is easy to communicate with and made buying a home far easier than we had ever expected. We absolutely will be listing with her when we sell!"by J Miller
