Gina Shumway just helped my husband and I buy our first investment property! We had really no idea what we were doing and she was so super helpful and explained so much to us, as well as giving much needed advice, running countless ARVs for us and taking us to see multiple homes. Such a wonderful person and agent. 10/10 recommend 😊

Kyle Shrum with Auburdale Group was a wonderful to work with! My husband and I had a clear idea of the home we wanted and no idea how to begin to find it. Thanks to Kyle, we found the PERFECT house for our family and closed within a month, under budget too! Communication was always promote and clear, and he answered our questions honestly, openly, and thoroughly- some we didn’t even know we had. You’ll be in good hands!

Kyle was very patient with us as we went through the process of finding a property. He communicated well and never pressured us to move forward if we weren’t comfortable. He went above and beyond through a unique closing process and would have no problem working with him again.

Being the first time home buyers we needed a lot of guidance when I came to getting a mortgage, real estate advice etc. Tevan has been very responsive and super helpful throughout the whole process. She’s not only recommended the right people (mortgage banker, inspector, insurance) but also handled a lot of day-to-day interactions. Thank You!

Jessica has been a fantastic partner for our properties! She is always quick to respond and works across all teams to simplify the overall buying process. Her exceptional background (as a former home inspector) puts her in a very unique position with her clients.

Adrienne helped me purchase my first investment property while I live out of the country. I have never written a review for anyone before, but she’s special. As a newbie, you can imagine the nervousness. She stayed with me for months to answer all my questions. I hope to purchase a few more investments with Adrienne.
