Tell us about your experience with Anna Bellomo

    • Words cannot fully encompass my wife's and my experience with, or our gratitude for, Anna as our selling agent. I have NEVER been involved with a real estate agent of her caliber before. There were a number of challenges with this sale; namely that we live 2 hours from the property and we were constrained by a tight budget. Anna went above and beyond any preconceived notion of what a selling agent can do in that situation. I also want to mention that I'm a picky/cranky old man. I told her that up front. It didn't matter. She handled everything like a pro. Here is the most impressive thing - She was on our side from the beginning and she cares. A lot of agents fake this part. Not Anna. She was emotionally invested in this project from the beginning. It became quickly obvious that she was going to work hard for us and be completely candid with her opinion of what would and would not work. I was tough. I researched everything she told us. I was looking for reasons not to trust her. That was unnecessary and a complete waste of time on my part. It is impossible to heap enough accolades on this woman. She is competent, professional, honest, kind, caring, hard-working, driven, and above all, she has a level of integrity that I've never experienced before. I want to publicly thank her right here for what she did for myself and my family. You're the best Anna and you have set the standard for what a selling agent should be. God Bless you ma'am!Please; if you are considering using Anna and you need a personal recommendation or have any questions, feel free to message me and I will be more than happy to answer them all.

    • Anna got us our dream home! It was a very desirable house in a very desirable neighborhood, and we were competing against 11 other offers. Thanks to Anna's advice, our offer was the winning bid, topping the next one by only a slight margin. When you consider that this was only the second offer we were making on a house, you can see why you should go with Anna for your house search. From our very first conversation, we immediately knew Anna was the realtor we wanted to work with. She has extensive knowledge of the East Bay housing market, boundless energy and solid relationships in the real estate market. This really makes all the difference in such a competitive market. Throughout the process, she was very invested, from taking the time to explain exactly how everything worked (we were first-time buyers), to suggesting homes she had seen, commenting on the ones we were interested in and steering us away when we started going down the wrong path into potentially problematic areas. We had no doubt she had our best interest at heart: she wanted us to get our dream home at the lowest price. Even now that the sale has closed, we know she is there to give us advice if we need it. We feel that she is not just our realtor, but also a friend and we could not recommend her more highly.

    • Simply put, we love Anna. She was a great agent and, more importantly, a wonderful person. We could not be happier with our new house and Anna was directly responsible for the result.On the recommendation of a friend, we met Anna to talk about about house shopping in Berkeley and Oakland. We had a general idea of where we wanted to buy, but our sense of neighborhoods and how the pieces fit together wasn't great. Anna talked us through our options and helped us figure out how to approach our first afternoon of open houses. As we were leaving, Anna suggested checking out one more open house, telling us that we might not like the house, but we might really like the neighborhood (Piedmont Avenue), which hadn't been on our consideration list. Anna was right about the house, and spot on about the neighborhood. We fell in love and never really looked anywhere else.Because we focused almost exclusively on one neighborhood with relatively little inventory, we expected our search would take some time. We saw quite a few houses, but none of them felt right. Anna walked us through one option and pointed out all of the little (and big) issues we hadn't noticed ourselves, which convinced us the house wasn't right for us. In another instance, she counseled patience when we liked a house but didn't love it; her sound advice not to settle for a house we didn't love seemed risky to us at the time but in retrospect proved very wise. We quickly came to trust Anna and the advice she gave us. She wasn't just a real estate agent looking for another commission; she was a friend who was guiding us toward a home we would love and enjoy for many years.After several months of looking, we finally found it, the house we knew was the right one almost from the moment we walked through the front door. Once we told Anna, she kicked into high gear, gathering intelligence for us, talking to the listing agent, touring the house herself. She helped us strategize our offer, acted as a sage counselor, and made sure we made the absolute strongest offer we could make. We're happy to report our offer was accepted and we closed without a hitch. All in all, Anna is a wonderful agent and a great person. We cannot sing her praises highly enough.

    • We don't have enough words to express how grateful we are to Anna for all the work she put into finding us the perfect home. We met Anna when we first came to Berkeley during a short trip, one year before our relocation. Although we were living overseas at the time, Anna started working with us remotely, and added us to the MLS database where we were able to gradually learn how to navigate the complex real estate market in the Bay Area. She also kept in contact with us and answered all our questions promptly. When we were ready to relocate, we rented a property in Berkeley for a year. During that period, Anna visited prospective properties with us and guided us throughout the process. We ended up making three offers. The final one was accepted. From that point on, Anna worked nonstop. She also recommended Erick Byrd, a senior loan advisor at RPM Mortgage. Thanks to her partnership with Erick, we were able to close in less than three weeks. We are now happy owners of our dream house in Berkeley. We have the highest regard for Anna both as a person and as a professional. We recommend her without any reservations.

    • Never had a better real estate agent. She's incredibly responsive, knows what to do and how to do it (got our sewer lateral certificate from the City of Berkeley when we'd utterly failed to get through the bureaucracy), and makes selling a house as easy as it gets. She helped arrange our bridge loan for the new house, and then she said, "Move out, give me the key, and I'll do the rest." We got a price for our house beyond our hopes, and it was so easy. I chose her based on these reviews on Yelp. They're real. She really is that good.

    • Anna helped me sell my Berkeley condominium, where I had lived for almost 20 years, and then buy a new house nearby. She was so nice and easy to work with, making every task and encounter pleasant. She was also incredibly smart, savvy, and hard-working. She knew how to navigate the whole process, from hiring and overseeing contractors to choosing colors for the house to all the paperwork and bureaucracy. She kept me to a timeline for moving my stuff out, and even gifted me an hour with a clearing consultant to help me get started. Once I was out, Anna really took the reins. I didn't want to spend a lot of money to overhaul or remodel, and she said I didn't have to. She knew just what upgrades would make an old and neglected house sparkle. She picked out light fixtures, kitchen flooring, and other small items that completely transformed the place. She hired landscapers and painters and oversaw their work. She got all the permits done. And she navigated the sale of a tricky property with grace. She found just the right buyer, and we sold the house with a 10-day close. Then we turned our focus to buying a new home. Listing agents at open houses would ask who our agent was and then light up when we said Anna, and tell us that she was the best. We liked one house and Anna told us honestly why she thought it was not the perfect fit for us. She was right. Then we saw another house we liked, but everyone else liked it too - there was a frenzy of competition. Anna did everything right in preparing and presenting our offer, and we beat out ten other offers, and got the first house we bid on. We're now settling into our ideal home. Anna clearly enjoys her work and is up for any challenge. She makes buying or selling a house a positive experience. She's a great agent.

      - Elisabeth - Seller/Buyer
    • Anna is a very talented realtor and a terrific person. If ever there was a test for her skills, it had to be the recent sale of my home of 32 years in Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto. A one-of-a-kind place-- with two very different houses on one lot, a high price tag and urban setting-- the property was not likely to be an easy sell, but with Anna's help it happened right on time. In the end we received at least five written bids (some from abroad), and even a few verbal ones. I met Anna through a friend who bought a house through her, but I believe her skills in preparing and marketing a home for sale should also be stressed in these pages. There can't be many other realtors in Berkeley who are so skilled in the peculiarities of the local market and so pleasant to work with.Anna worked closely with me and her painters/contractors for several weeks to prepare the houses: new interior paint, some plaster work, uncovering old light switches,updated fixtures, removing carpet. Though I got fazed a few times by the challenge, she was unflappable, and in the end everything was completed right on time, and very nicely. She has great taste in staging too, and in the end the houses never looked better. One of the cleverer suggestions she came up with was for me to write a history of the 112 year old property, which she published in a handsome brochure complete with photos. It turns out the history "sealed it" for the buyer, who wanted to be part of an "oh-so-Berkeley" property. These touches made a real difference.Anna and I joked that given our daily communications we were practically married for two months, and I'm sure our respective spouses felt the same. For sellers (and I'm sure for buyers too), Anna provides not only the skill, but the necessary amount of hand-holding and personal attention to help you through the process. I've worked with other realtors in the past who have always been professional, but Anna brings it to a much higher level.Thanks, Anna!

    • My husband and I moved to the East Bay 1 year ago from Ohio where things are done considerably different. Based on her positive reviews on Yelp, we contacted Anna when looking to find a home. At our first meeting, she sat us down and laid out the local housing market in great detail, filling us in on the behind the scenes details (what makes for a desirable offer, referrals for lenders, neighborhood information, etc). When she looks at houses with you, she points out all the things that may be an issue, she is not interested in making a quick sale, she wants to you to be very happy with the home you choose. It is because of her deep knowledge and guidance that we were able to secure the house we wanted in our #1 desired neighborhood (Rockridge in Oakland) on the very first home that we placed an offer on. She feels more like a friend who's got your back (and knows everyone in town who can get you what you need). Do yourself a solid and call Anna, we're so very glad that we did. Best real estate experience we've ever had.

      - P.H. - Buyer
    • Anna was wonderful to work with as we prepared for and sold (at a price that exceeded expectations) our beloved family home of almost 50 years. From our first meeting to the signing of our final papers, Anna's caring presence and professional savvy were invaluable in so many ways. She made what was a very daunting task feel manageable and was with us every step of the way with sound advise and a keen understanding of what our family was feeling emotionally. Anna's responsiveness throughout was second to none and by the end of our journey we thought of her as a close family friend. We would highly recommend Anna to anyone embarking on a this journey - you'll be glad to have her on your side!

      - Ken M - Seller
    • Don't sell your house without Anna! Her knowledge of the marketplace is invaluable. She's very skilled in knowing how you should market your place and to whom. We're designers and architects, so we thought we knew more than anyone about what should be done to prepare our house. But her direction taught us where to spend our money and what could be left alone. Pricing the house is key, and her attention to getting that right was the most valuable information we could have received. She says, "it's not about the volume of offers, it's about the quality." Anna is highly respected in the real estate community and we found that it seemed that the quality of real estate agents and offers were better since they trusted that she would be selling better properties. Lastly, she was a true delight to work with, from her phenomenal ideas, to her problem solving ability to her creativity....all top notch!

      - Sheri B - Seller
    • When we decided to sell our house in Oakland, we looked no further than Anna, who we had worked with four years prior to buy our house. To say she is phenomenal is an understatement - she is the best, hands down. We met with her a few months prior to us putting our house on the market to discuss what we should do to get it ready. Anna has a great awareness of what is happening in the housing market and had spot on suggestions for improvements (our house looked so good!). We moved out of our house and she and another agent from her company handled everything - all of the contractors, painters, stagers, and cleaners to prepare the house. We did little to nothing to get the house ready! Anna and the other agent kept us well informed of everything along the process - how the improvements were going and how the open houses went. We received multiple offers on our home and Anna helped us to select the best offer for us. The sale went extremely smooth and was quick and easy!After we decided to buy in another state, we asked her if she knew any real estate agents in our new city. She didn't but went through a process of vetting a new agent for us! We did not expect this at all and just shows again how amazing she is, even though we were no longer working with her. Anna is really the best and has ruined us for all other real estate agents! Our new agent was great, but my husband said at one point that his expectations were so high from working with Anna that it almost felt unfair to the new person. You really cannot compare her to anyone else.7/14/2013 Previous reviewMy husband and I were referred to Anna through friends. We had a phenomenal experience working with her from start to finish. She gives great, frank advice and really knows North Oakland and Berkeley. She listened to what we wanted and stuck to that when we started to second guess ourselves. She was always available and very responsive, even at night and on weekends.Anna prepared us for a long search given the current housing market, then pulled a magic trick and found us a pre-market house that we wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise. We were expecting the process to take six months to a year, and we moved into our new home in about six weeks (from when we started looking). We were a little sad that we found a place so fast and didn't get to spend longer working with Anna!Even after we signed the papers, Anna continued to support us with multiple contractor referrals and information on how to transfer and set up our utilities. She even scheduled some of the required work for us!We highly recommend Anna and have told anyone who will listen how great she is!

    • We hired Anna to be our selling agent based on her reviews, and I'm happy to report that she lived up her 5-star reviews. She is very professional, has great judgment and she always looked out for our best interest. She was very on top of things, is timely, ethical and we felt very informed throughout the process. She also gave us great advice. She helped get our house ready for sale in a cost effective manner and with a great team of vendors she has rapport with. She has excellent project management skills, communication skills and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we were informed and didn't need to worry about anything. Having Anna lead our house sale effort allowed us to be hands off which we really appreciated. We trusted her judgment completely, and we were impressed with how she advised us through the negotiations, ultimately getting us great results. We'd hire her again in a heartbeat for selling or buying. If you are looking for an agent in the bay area, we highly recommend Anna.

    • I'm not a review-writer but can't help but take a moment to share our overwhelmingly positive review of Anna Bellomo. Anna helped us with our first house sale and it couldn't have gone better. We had no decent referrals as we began our search process to find a realtor, but Anna's name kept popping up with high marks. I can honestly say she's earned all the positive regard. In all our dealings with her, Anna was prompt, friendly, cooperative, flexible and responsive. She gave us very constructive feedback about our house, and guided us through the necessary repairs, inspections and staging process. We appreciated how she educated us about the market and her pricing approach. Due to her marketing efforts, we ended up closing significantly higher than our asking price. The negotiation process was smooth and simple, and we were grateful that Anna operated in such an ethical manner with all parties. In short, we cannot recommend her enough and would highly encourage others to engage Anna.

    • Anna is AMAZING!! The smoothest real estate transaction ever. We had a rental property in Oakland we decided to sell. We are out of town owners so we took to the internet to research realtors. After seeing the positive reviews on YELP, we visited Anna's website. We were impressed with her website and liked what we read so we contacted her. A message was sent, and within minutes, she contacted us. We arranged to meet with Anna at the property. We were not disappointed. Anna is professional, honest, personal, knowledgeable, passionate, caring, enthusiastic, and most of all, she has vision. We gave her the listing and she ran with it. She is a mover and a shaker. Anna took care of arranging everything to get the house ready to put on the market. Being out of town owners, she made that part of the transaction stress free. Anna also has a wealth of professional vendors that are excellent and there for her. The end result was beautiful. Anna delivered!! The house sold within days, over asking price and with multiple offers. Brava, Anna. You are a gem!! We would highly, without hesitation, recommend Anna. Thank you again for all your hard work. It truly was a pleasure working with you.

    • Anna is absolutely terrific. She truly takes the time to get to know her clients' objectives and provides intelligent and candid advice and opinions. For instance, she will tell you if she doesn't think a particular house is for you and give you the well thought out reasons. She is incredibly knowledgeable about East Bay neighborhoods and houses, she knows how other brokers operate, and she knows the market dynamics. All of that means that she really knows how to win -- It was her advice on a specific topic that may have helped seal the deal for our bid. She consistently goes above and beyond in her dedication to clients -- she is incredibly responsive and helpful, and an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so happy to have worked with her and would highly recommend her to others

      - Erik K - Buyer
    • We can't say enough great things about Anna. She was everything we were looking for in an agent and more. She was kind, patient, listened to all our needs, had great suggestions which helped our home become a "hot home" on Redfin right off the bat and become the #1 looked at home in the Maxwell Park neighborhood when it was on the market. She wasn't pushy at all, very understanding and helped make the stressful process of selling a home not stressful with confident and calm reassurance that we were on the right path. We felt extremely confident putting our trust into her hands. We highly recommend Anna! Thank you so much Anna for such an amazing job. Wishing you continued great success!

    • Anna helped my mother sell her house in Rockridge. She went above and beyond to get us the best price on the house. My mom is single and I live out of town. Anna was like a stand in family member and handled so many small and large details that I couldn't be there for. She was a dream to work with. The house looked amazing and we got top dollar for it. We were sold on Anna after our first meeting with her. From the very beginning we felt confident in her abilities and we were right!!! She was amazing.

    • Anna Bellomo is an outstanding realtor, and our recommendation of her work, is woefully overdue.My brother and I decided to sell our parent's house, and our childhood home, in late 2017. We began our search for a realtor sorting through over 20 realtor postcards and letters, but after several interviews, we knew we hadn't found our realtor. Our search continued online, and in February, 2018, we knew we found our realtor on the day we met Anna and walked with her through our parent's home. How did we know? Anna's reputation preceded her: online reviews exceeded top notch as were many others' comments: knowledgeable, dependable, and hard worker. She is highly regarded by her peers in the realty business. The day we met, Anna stood out from the others because of her professionalism and her ability to transmit her humility, humanity and respect for cultural diversity with warmth.Anna's communication is clear, direct, and kind. While she was managing multiple listings, she is highly responsive to our calls, and an exceptional forward thinker, anticipating our needs. My brother lived 50 miles away, and I live out of state. In the next two months, Anna deftly coordinated the vendors who prepared our home for listing. We worked closely with Anna by phone, text, and email, and always had input into important details, such as, the listing price.Our parent's home was listed for two weeks in April, 2018, with 2 open houses: all while I was out of the country on cruise vacation. Anna and her associate's expertise and customer service made the process seem so easy. We closed in less than a month and at a substantially higher selling price over listing.Our experience working with Anna was exceptional, and we are both grateful to have found her, and to have the opportunity to sell our parent's home to a family who we hope will find happiness and contentment in the home that we had, growing up. Thanks again so much, Anna!Warmest regards,Brian and Anne

    • Anna came highly recommended to us by our neighbor and she lived up to her reputation. My favorite part of working with her, was that she allowed me to be hands off because it was an emotional journey for me getting our sweet house ready for someone else to enjoy. She chose the carpet, light fixtures, paint etc and everything, including the staging was beautiful. It was as low stress as possible and she took care of all of the behind the scenes problems without complaints. I am going to have to highly recommend her because she couldn't have possible done a better job. Thank you, Anna! Keep doing your magic!

    • Anna is as good as it gets.. She helped us navigate our way through all the preparatory work getting our house ready to sell, took care of the inevitable issues that arose, marketed the house beautifully and ultimately helped us find a wonderful buyer. We moved out of town before the house went on the market, and Anna was in constant contact with us, consulting with inspectors and an entire team whose only purpose, it seemed to us, was showcasing our home's unique beauty. When a large branch crashed down on the street just before an open house, we found out about it from a neighbor and called Anna in a panic. "I got this," she calmly said. And she did. The branch was gone that day. Maybe the thing we loved most about Anna was how much she also loved our house. It had been our home for many years, and it truly meant something to us that she saw what we saw in it and did a fantastic job conveying that to others. Selling a home is stressful, we knew. We needn't have worried. Anna guided the whole process, calmed us when we were stressed, and was a vigilant advocate for us all along the way. We couldn't have found a better agent!

    • My husband and I ran the gamut of emotions as we were deciding to move out of San Francisco and buy a home in Berkeley or Oakland (we ultimately bought in Oakland), and we never could have done it without Anna.Anna totally "got" us and what we were looking for right away. She is so knowledgeable about the area, and was SO patient with us! We never felt that "pressure" to find something too quickly or get into something we weren't sure about. Never did we think we'd find a house so fast, but in less than 5 months of working with Anna, we're living in the perfect house for us.I think he best part is that she's a great person and she made this process fun instead of stressful, which it easily could have been. Working with her was a pleasure. We also made a friend! Can't recommend highly enough!

      - Stephanie R. - Buyer
    • My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Anna to sell our home in the Oakland Hills. Anna is professional, knowledgable, resourceful and a joy to work with. She not only has the knowledge and experience of the local housing market but she is able to make suggestions regarding improvements to the home to get the most bang for your dollar if you will. She has many professional contacts in the home business, that she can utilize if needed. We had a great experience with her referrals for home inspectors, plumbers, roofers etc.Anna has a way of making you feel very comfortable and supported as you find yourself in the midst of making tough decisions in the process of selling your home. She has become our official goto Realtor for any of our future needs. Thank you Anna for everything you did for us. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

    • If you are looking for a real estate agent to sell your property, look no further. We found a gem in Anna Bellomo! My wife and I interviewed several real estate agents before hiring Anna to list our condo for sale. We are owners of property in Berkeley however we do not live in the area. No problem - Anna took care of everything. She facilitated painters, carpet installation, staging, photography, home inspections, and all the essentials for selling a property. She has wonderful contacts for the trades in the area.You can trust Anna Bellomo to do what she says she is going to do. She exceeded all my expectations of a real estate agent. If she said she would get back to me in 2 hours, she got back to me within 2 hours. If she said she would get back to me by tomorrow, she got back to me by tomorrow (if not sooner). Not only is she knowledgeable of the East Bay real estate market, but also she has amazing professional skills to close a deal. She made suggestions that added to the charm of the condo.When we hired Anna she had a strategy to sell the condo. She told us that it would "sell in 11 days". I was a bit skeptical, but she was right (almost). The condo sold in 10 days from the time it was listed to the acceptance of the offer. Having multiple offers, she was able to negotiate the highest offer with the best value for us (the sellers).I found Anna through Yelp reviews, which I hadn't used in the past. The reviews about Anna are all clearly accurate. I have recommended her to another friend who will be selling their property later this year.

    • We cannot recommend Anna enough! She's very friendly, flexible, hard-working, knowledgeable and very much has your interest at heart. And the best thing is: She doesn't end with getting done what needs to get done. She always went out of her way to help us.Our search involved several months, spanning several parts of the Bay Area. In East Bay, we worked with Anna and she was excellent. We met with her first in her office where we explained what we were looking for - a comfortable but smallish place in a safe neighborhood and convenient commute to the city above all other factors.Anna is easy to work with, prompt, organized, efficient and helpful. We'd go to open houses and if we found something she might advise us and come to see it with us too, but she largely stayed out of the process of finding us a place to bid on, because really, that stuff is on Trulia/Redfin these days and not where an agent helps you. Rather, once we found something we liked, she step into high gear about how to make a good offer (and that did not usually involve any advice to bid high). In fact, when we were really busy, and struggling to make it to an open house, she'd be able to tell us, based on what we'd said to her that a place was not worth seeing, either because of the price, or because it needs too much work etc.Our search took an unexpected turn when we found a well-cared-for house that seemed special and a great value but well out of our budget and maybe out of our reach too. Anna's experience with working at various price levels and very different types of houses came really in handy. She helped us put together an offer that we're comfortable with, without overpaying and still very competitive on an in-demand house. She was instrumental in getting our offer accepted. We have worked with other real estate agents too and the difference with Anna is ... like night and day! Even after the offer was accepted, the difference of Anna was very clear. Some agents stop really paying attention after the bid is accepted (their fee is locked in), but Anna was even more engaged at that point, making sure that all the steps of escrow, loan, appraisal went smoothly, putting in more effort into it than we expected. She was happy to accompany us to visit the house after we were in contract so we can measure stuff for planning furniture etc - and even encouraged us to make that visit. Even after close, she offered to help us with things. Anna is well-connected to plumbers, electricians, roofers, engineers and all manner of other professionals needed for inspections, estimates and such which are a critical part of writing an offer as well as mentally being aware of exactly what you are getting into. And when we needed someone to clean the house before we moved in - she recommended us a good cleaning crew. A good real estate educates her/his clients with market color, city regulations and ordinances and other considerations that are relevant to the needs of the buyer. And she was excellent with that.And what is more: she was very keen on making sure that the home-buying process was an enjoyable, not a painful experience - always making sure to tell us when we need to react quickly and when we can relax.She has a good relationships with many local agents and would contact that agent with questions we had. Through this process I really learned what a good real estate agent can bring to the table. The process would have been very different without Anna's help!She has earned our trust and has delivered!

      - Tom A. - Buyer
    • Anna is incredible! She helped us find and land our dream home.Anna adeptly guided us through our first time buying a house and helped us close the first one we bid on! She was patient, had great contacts for all our needs (mortgage, inspectors, insurance etc), and is very knowledgeable in the financial process, housing market and neighborhoods.Once we were in escrow she was incredibly detail oriented and kept things moving quickly. Even after we moved in she had a check list of all the things we needed to take care of as home owners. She made a very daunting process a breeze!

    • Anna, is an amazing real estate professional and an incredible person with whom we were lucky enough to have had the privilege to work with. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house in the Berkeley or surrounding communities. When we decided to move out of state we started looking online for an agent to sell our home and read how Anna had handled everything from the painters, carpet installers, handyman, stagers, and cleaners to prepare houses. We felt that this was too good to be true, but it wasn't. Anna has an incredible network of people who prepared our home for the market. Anna has a great awareness of what is happening in the housing market and had spot on suggestions for improvements, adding touches that accented features of our home that were highly sought out in the market. She has a great eye for detail and put a lot of herself into preparing our home. Everything she did was handled with such love and care. Our house looked so good we almost changed our minds about moving. Anna gave us great, frank advice, and really knows the microclimate of the markets throughout the Berkeley area. She was able to guide us through the emotional ups and downs of selling our home of 22 years and found a buyer who will love our home as much as we did. We never could have done it without Anna, she is truly phenomenal!
