“Lise was like having a mind reader who knew the neighborhoods we were interested in like the back of her hand. The consummate professional, always available, flexible, friendly and accommodating – she checks all the boxes. I would HIGHLY recommend her to all my friends to be an absolute superstar as their realtor!” – Brett

“Lise is absolutely amazing! Multiple of my family members as well as friends have utilized her to buy and sell houses. She is very familiar with the Nashville and surrounding areas. She supports you all the way through the process and even beyond! I 100% would recommend Lise for anyone looking for a realtor.” – Kelsey

“Lise has helped us buy and sell several homes. Her local knowledge as a Nashville native and her warm genuine personality make the whole process seamless. She provided time with an interior decorator who was able to use our own home decor in cool and new ways. She contacted local repair and painting professionals on our behalf and even helped us box up many of our belongings to get our home “show” ready. She provides great advice and walked us through the whole process from start to finish. When we were out of town, she took care of all issues associated with an unexpected repair. I would recommend her to anyone who likes a little extra attention and a sense of humor.” – Susannah

“Lise did a tremendous job in helping us acquire a couple of properties recently in the Nashville market, she has proven to be the consummate professional with logical and well thought out answers to all our questions and concerns. She will listen to your wants and needs and then provide a multitude of options that fit within your budget and is willing to visit as many locations needed to help you find that perfect place. Of particular note, whether it was one or ten properties we visited that day, she would always give her honest opinion regarding a piece of property and would not try to sugarcoat the negatives and rush you through the property as some realtors have a tendency to do. If you are looking for a realtor who listens, is responsive, knows the Nashville market, and can streamline the cumbersome paperwork process, then Lise is the only one you should consider. “ – Bill

“I cannot explain how wonderful Lise is. This was our first home buying experience and it was from a distance and it could not have gone smoother. Lise knew all of the questions we needing to be asking, offered to be present when we could not, and followed up a year later to see how things were going. She has gone above and beyond. She’s great no matter what your home buying experience may be, but if you are new to the process you truly won’t find a better person to work with. My only regret is that we weren’t able to spend that time with her in person! She was recommended by a dear friend and I would recommend her to anyone moving to the area.” Leslie
