" Karen is the consummate professional. Knowledgeable, attentive, and personable. She is trustworthy and we highly value her expertise, market insights and judgement."
“THE BEST realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. She did extensive research prior to showing us many houses. She paid extra special attention to what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us properties that didn't meet our qualifications. She also made recommendations based on her many years of experience that were not in her best interest of making a quick commission. I highly recommend Darnell!”
"Thank you so much for seeing this go through and helping us make it happen. We could not have done it without you. If anyone needs a fantastic agent Ashley Hesni Ploue is amazing. Explained everything to me, extremely patient with me, and gave me so much support plus her super fantastic negotiating skills."
