What sets Risa apart is the genuine passion she has for her work. She knows how important and personal it is to sell and then find that next home, and her heart is always in the journey. She helped us find a home that is perfect for our family when it felt like we were running out of choices.
Risa is truly one of the best real estate agents that my husband and I know! Selling our townhouse wasn't an easy task, but she got it done.
She was always there for us to answer our questions and she worked extra hard in helping us find the home of our dreams! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I engaged Risa to be my real estate agent, and just afterwords a water line broke under the house, causing significant damage ultimately including mold. Risa not only continued to market my house, but aided me in finding a reasonably priced contractor to repair the damage. She is persistent and works hard for her clients. She was successful in selling my house.
Risa, great job! Your advice on the house was right on. With my busy schedule, you kept things moving without being pushy. And you staged my house with my own furniture, who knew it could look so nice.
Having previously worked with some of the "big name" real estate companies in Dallas, I found working with Risa to be very refreshing. I have transacted on multiple properties with Risa and she has been fantastic to work with. She provided excellent guidance, insight, and was genuinely interested in finding the right property, as well as selling my home. She was able to provide true value with her knowledge of other service providers that I found to be very good to work with.
Risa was a pleasure to work with. She demonstrated incredible patience and flexibility as we looked at nearly twenty properties before settling on the one we purchased. It seemed that with each new showing (particularly the early ones) we kept discovering new requirements that we hadn't considered that ruled out a greater and greater set of homes (e.g. turns out we had to have a second bedroom on the same floor as the master, that a great room configuration was essential, that the staircase could not be in a straight line). Risa took this in stride even though it meant she had spent her valuable time in order for us to learn what we actually wanted and valued. Risa was thorough and responsive. We came up with numerous atypical requests (e.g. determine the specific parameters of transferability of the warranty for a foundation repair previously done or the specific bylaws for an HOA) that she worked on very effectively for us; she was relentless in hounding various counter-parties to get us prompt answers to even these screwball questions. Risa demonstrated a high degree of commitment and responsiveness in showing numerous properties. Over the course of three months, we would research properties on the web, select some that appeared to meet our criteria, schedule a tour, and presto- Risa was available within a day or two to provide the showing. Over and over again. She never once seemed impatient or frustrated with our continued requests for still more showings. Despite being in my early forties, this was the first time I had ever purchased a home. Risa was both patient and educational as I learned (and railed against) "the ropes" of how the process worked. Perhaps many agents show Risa's level of commitment, patience, and flexibility and I just don't realize it since she's the only one I ever had. But I doubt it. Enthusiastically recommended.
My husband and I worked with Risa for the purchase of our home. I am a first-time homebuyer, my husband and I were off/on about our home search, given changes in our respective job situations. Risa was very patient with us in our hunt. Her mellow style is good for those (like us) who are independent and like the online aspects of hunting for a house. We didn't want an agent breathing down our necks and pushing a deal at the wrong price for us. Risa was great!
After many years of consideration, it was finally time for me to sell my home. The thought of doing this was somewhat stressful. I adored my unique house and its surroundings and neighbors. They just do not make houses like this anymore.
It was important that I found a REALTOR that I could trust and depend on who could find a buyer who would appreciate this treasure, be its new steward, and ensure that it would be treated well and appreciated by its new owner.
After our meeting, I felt very comfortable and confident with my decision to work with Risa. She proved to be the right person for selling my home. Her ability to build a level of comfort and trust was important to me. She showed extensive knowledge of the local market and her understanding of the demographics, people in the area, and, most importantly, understood the value of this unique property was helpful.
Since I was a novice at selling a home, whenever I contacted her with questions about things I was concerned about, she was always very knowledgeable, patient, and respectful. She was able to offer guidance and her attention to detail was greatly appreciated.
In summary, Risa's skills, people skills, and all-around performance were great during the entire time it took me to sell my house. And the house sold fast! Much faster than I had imagined. The whole process worked out incredibly smoothly. Thank you, Risa!
Risa is a true professional. Her goal is not only to sell a home but also to help her customer.
From my experience, I highly recommend Risa next time you plan to buy or sell a home.
HEY! You have to meet this woman! She is amazing. Her knowledge and professionalism are immediately apparent. Her most impressive skill, for me, was her ability to get me to see the big picture and think through a situation in a way I had not envisioned. She helped me find a house and close in less than 5 weeks. There were multiple offers on the house so she helped me create an offer that would be very advantageous to the seller and entice her to accept my offer. Risa was also very personable and seems to be able to relate to people in a way that makes then comfortable and confident in her abilities. She is very genuine and honest. I really like her as a REALTOR and as a person. I mean it. You HAVE to meet this woman!
We were connected to Risa through our mortgage officer who recommended her as a REALTOR and we are so happy he did! She has a very easygoing personality and was always willing to go the extra mile for us. We were first-time buyers and she helped educate us on the process of buying a home and how to make our offer look more attractive than other offers. Because of the current market we are in, she knew how urgent it was to see a home as quickly as possible and sometimes that meant twice in the same day! She truly is a blessing to work with and I certainly believe that if one chooses to work with her, you will not be disappointed. She would send us various homes we might be interested in and made sure there were not working offers before viewing the home. Whenever we had questions about the status of our offer, she always got back to us either with an update or to let us know she was waiting for the information to be sent to her. For a reliable, friendly, hardworking REALTOR, we definitely recommend Risa to help you find your next home!
