Hiring your Realtor should be no different than hiring any other professional.  You look for someone that is going to meet all your expectations, do the job right and someone you can trust.  It is nice to know what customers and clients have to say about the service that I provide.  The following testimonials are written comments that my clients have taken the time to send to my Brokers, Nancy Gerrard and Jay Hoeschler.  There are no better references than those of my clients.  

Your satisfaction is my top priority!

Client Comments

Wendi was the Selling Agent of the home we purchased.  When it came time to sell our home, there was not even a second thought given by us as to who we wanted as our Realtor.  Not enough space to list all the positives: professional, honest, diligent work ethic, always available, friendly, concerned, excellent follow through, can do positive attitude, sense of humor, superior combination of passive/aggressive selling skills.

As expected, Wendi provided excellent service for my Mother, who lives in Texas.  She was very helpful and accomodating when my Mother first was considering moving to the area, answering all questions and providing whatever helpful information she came across.  When my Mother finally decided on a house to purchase, Wendi was invaluable in taking care of all the details to make it as easy for my Mother as possible to purchase a new home here while still living in Texas.  (After the purchase was complete, Wendi continued to assist by locating renters for the new home)  Wendi provides exceptional professional service, and she is a tremendous asset to your company.  We happily recommend her to anyone we know who is considering the services of a Realtor.

Wendi was a pleasure to work with and we felt confident buying our home with her as our advocate.  She was with us every step of the way!

Wendi was amazing from Day 1.  I came for the weekend to buy a house and her professionalism and organization made it easy.  Wendi was so friendly and outgoing from our very first telephone conversation.  I felt like she was truly excited about our move and about finding us the perfect home.  She also took an interest in our children and our school and recreation needs.  I had been scanning the internet and had narrowed down options and Wendi and I were able to go through those houses quickly in one day.  I don't like to waste time and Wendi made sure that didn't happen.  I was impressed with her organization and knowledge of the area and how comfortable she made me feel about such a big decision.  I felt confident enough in her abilities that I left to go back to the east coast with her helping me handle major long distance decisions about the redecorating of our new house.  Everything has turned out great  and we LOVE our new house.  I would highly recommend Wendi Franke to anyone in need of a professional, caring and dedicated Realtor who really goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy with your decisions and with your new home purchase.  What a blessing she has been to us!
