 Dear Nancy:
             Now that we have arrived in Pittsburgh I just wanted to drop you a line to say how absolutely thrilled we are with our new house and to express my sincere gratitude for your extraordinarily intelligent and skillful help. There is no doubt in my mind that without you, we would not have the great house that we have today. Thank you so much!
             As you will no doubt recall, when I started this process I had some vague ideas but very little concrete sense of what to look for in real estate. Moreover, being new to Pittsburgh I had no knowledge of the different neighborhoods or the market here. Throughout the whole process, your wise counsel, diligent efforts, and responsiveness were crucial. Truly, we couldn’t have done it without you. Of course, your patience with my cluelessness was also much appreciated. During the contract negotiations phase you held our hands, and you were always ready to make the extra effort to be sure that every detail was covered.   To top it all off – we had some fun! I actually look back on my whirlwind house hunt with fondness. 
             The bottom line is that my family ended up in a really great house, in a neighborhood that we like better and better the more we get to know it, near a school where we can happily start our daughter off in Pittsburgh. What a great thing you did for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks to Nancy who listed our home in Squirrel Hill this Spring.  We can't say enough good things about her, both as an agent and a person.   We heard that the house was mentioned in a recent article in the P-G as an example of a property that sold quickly. The writer should have known how smart Nancy was to arrange for house cleaning and window washing before she listed it.  Everyone should have such a wonderful agent!

Hi Nancy
Your welcome. I have been meaning to send you a note to tell you I really appreciated working with you. You are a true professional. I know you are probably well connected with Howard Hanna Financial, but if you ever need a back up I hope you will consider me.
Great to hear from you.
