    "Penny was an absolute pleasure to work with in the sale of my family's SML home. We have had mixed experiences with realtors in the past, and have been disappointed with the amount of dedication, thought and personal expertise they provide - but not with Penny! She was professional, extremely prompt in replying, excellent in communicating every step of the way, and realistic in expectations. She has connections throughout the community and is well-respected. She gave her sincere and honest advice at all times during the selling process. My family was thoroughly delighted when she helped us sell our home for over asking price."

    We found Penny to be very knowledgeable about the Smith Mountain Lake area. Penny only showed us homes that were within our budget and had the features we had reviewed with her. She is very organized and responsive. Buying our Smith Mountain Lake house was the most positive real estate experience we have had. We highly recommend Penny as a realtor. Tom & Julie Heller

    Simply put, Penny is fantastic! Penny was instrumental on both the buy and sell-side of the equation. We found our dream home and closed within a month and equally as impressive, sold our property in less than one month (from listing to close). Not only is she a professional that gets things done, more importantly, she is fun. Thank you Penny for all of your great work!

    We interviewed four real estate agents who had facilitated sales in our neighborhood. The easy and fortunate (for us) choice was Penny. We have bought and sold houses in four states and have never had such a proficient, trustworthy, thorough, open/honest, and successful agent as Penny. She knows the market and advised us on the maximum, least and likely amount we could receive for our property, and she managed everything that we needed to do to maximize our investment. In a word she is tremendous. Thank you Penny for a job well done--way beyond our expectations. B. Johnson.

    “Friends who had purchased a home at Smith Mountain Lake through Penny recommended her to us. It is one of the best referrals we have ever received. Penny has extensive knowledge of the area. She was able to focus in on the type of properties we were interested in, while being straight forward and honest about the pros and cons of a property's ability to meet what we were looking for. Penny is an excellent negotiator and puts the interest of her client ahead of her own. Beyond just finding us the right house, she knows who is who at SML and she was also always available to connect us with the right people for things we needed to get done, even after the closing of our house. We are very pleased and would strongly recommend Penny to anyone wanting to buy a home in the Smith Mountain Lake area.”
