Aya was so helpful and kind throughout the entire process of helping us find a house! Her negotiating is next level. We are super thankful for her navigating us through this process.

Aya is an AMAZING realtor!! I had a few hiccups along the way (my fault not hers) and she was there every step of the way to guide me through every bit of it! I will recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a new home or to help you sell your home. Aya is very personable, knowledgeable, and listens to you in order to help you find what you're looking for. I trusted her the entire way of my home buying experience. This was my first home purchase and I can TRULY give all of the credit to Aya!! She does not try to sell the house to you, she shows you what you've asked for, listens to your pros and cons and brings even more to the table. She truly treated me as if I were her only client. My review does not touch the gratitude and thankfulness I have for her. My daughter and I have a beautiful home and have Aya to thank for that.

Aya was introduced us through an inquiry on Zillow. She showed us a home we were interested in and we put down a contract to purchase. Aya was meticulous with details and kept us informed throughout the offer, contract negotiation, inspection and close. Aya's calm professional demeanor was welcome and appreciated. If you are seeking to work with an agent that is focused on making the home-buying experience a joy, Aya is your agent!
