I've met and worked with many brokers and Lisa is far and away the most trustworthy and hard working I've come across. She truly
went above and beyond the call of duty. Lisa came through for us from beginning to end. In my opinion, Lisa is hands down the
best broker in Rockaway- not just because of her work ethic, organization and fresh energy but because she doesn't play games and
doesn't fall into the many ego traps so many brokers I've met fall into. I don't give out praise very often,
but Lisa has proven herself worthy."
