"Venis was my realtor when I purchased my first home. She did a great job of listening to my desires and taking my budget into consideration. She showed me a neighborhood I never would have found on my own. My first buying experience was very positive. Venis was very knowledgeable in her field. She even took into consideration property taxes when showing me different homes since that would affect my mortgage payment and therefore my budget. I loved working with Venis. She was very available every step of the way. I never hesitate to recommend her to other and I look forward to working with her again in the future."
