What our clients are saying  

Throughout the duration of the house hunting process, Ms. Britton was consistently organized, thorough, and efficient. While I was demanding throughout the process, as my anticipation level was really high, she maintained a high level of reliability and effort. In addition, her follow-through was really impressive. I was very particular about multiple offerings being submitted and she satisfied every submission that I requested in a timely and efficient way. I will continue to use Wanda with additional purchases in the future.

After 2 years of no traction on our house with other realtors, we reached out to Wanda who had the most recent sales in our area. Not only did she sell the house within a year, she got us exactly what we were asking for it. She was wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her! 07/09/2016 - alenakay221

We have been so lucky to meet Wanda in May With her assistance, we have subsequently bought 3 properties from her a few months later. Closing forclosure properties for overseas investor was not a straightforward process. With Wanda's dedication, persistence, and hard working, we happily settled the properties. Moreover, Wanda helped us find tenants and manage the properties for us. She's n excellent property manager. Knowing that she's looking after our properties gives us peach of mind even we are far away in Australia. I have been hugely impressed by her professionaism, honesty, intergrity and dedication. I have no hesitation to recommend Wanda to my family and friends
