Anthony and Nicole Black We are pleased to take this opportunity to recommend an excellent Realtor, Brenda Malone from Homes Realty of Northern New York. We selected her because of her professionalism, real estate knowledge, attention to detail, and positive "can-do" attitude. She is an utmost professional and is incredibly generous with her time. She was patient with us as we traveled on weekends and holidays from Maryland to look at homes several times over the course of a few months. She was proactive in searching and communicating to us new homes that came on the market that she thought we would be interested in. When we found the home we wanted to submit an offer on, without delay she immediately wrote up the offer which ultimately resulted in us getting the home! Throughout the entire process Brenda answered every telephone call and email no matter what time of night or day it was. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt she was just trying to sell us a house, but that she was there to help us find the perfect house for our family. We feel we have a trustworthy agent, as well as a friend! Thank you, Brenda! Anthony and Nicole Black

Amanda is honest, hard working and passionate about the people she serves. She literally saved us thousands of dollars through negotiations.
