"“We worked with Sandy Reynolds from Sandy Hartmann's Agency in the Seminole market, which is very tight and with an admittedly specific set of criteria. Sandy was very responsive plus she set us up with a daily email on the changes in the market tailored to our search, and would call us when something of particular interest came up. She never made us feel pressured, and in fact told us that the house had to be what we were looking for and that we felt was the right one. We found that house and Sandy supported us all the way through the negotiations, making us feel comfortable and reassured. The Transaction Manager, Terri has kept us well informed in the process working toward closing. And all of this support from the Sandy Hartmann Agency has been warm, friendly, personal and very real.”"
