"Once we decided to sell our home, we contacted DeDe because she had been highly recommended as THE real estate professional to engage because of her knowledge of both real estate and our community. When we met with her, we emphasized our desire to sell before year's end, and she discussed what we needed to do as well as what she would do to market our home. A partnership was born as she and we then took the essential steps to present our home for sale at the right price. Once the house went on the market, we had a contract within days, and it closed 45 days later. DeDe handled any and all issues that arose with good humor, efficiency, and attention for detail. We couldn't have been more satisfied"

"Dede has listed property for my family since 2013. She is always ahead of the game and in the know about what is going on. She keeps us updated on how she is promoting our property and is fantastic in how she represents us. I would recommend her to anyone. She has my business as long as she wants it! "

"Dede is a real estate wizard! Her drive and her passion are very evident to everyone she crosses paths with. Her approach to this business is how it should be done! "

  -Samantha Dunmire, Colleague

"DeDe was referred to me by a friend who had used her twice to purchase a home. As a first time home buyer, it was important to me to find the best person to help me through the process and represent me. DeDe is very knowledgeable and went to bat for me to get the best deal all the way around. I will recommend to others in the future. "

  -Crystal Josey, Client

"Another amazing experience with DeDe. From the very beginning, to the very end, very loyal, very dedicated, very serious. She has a team of valuable players that she works hand in hand with to make the selling and now buying experience painless. When I sold my home she was on top of me day by day trying to encourage me to move forward in things that I had to do. Now buying a new home, her team of lenders and everyone in her Circle was amazing. Thank you DeDe for another great experience. Look forward to working with you in the future! You have become a family name! "
