It is challenging to even begin to express how thankful I am to have Alicia Kramer as my "go to" real estate professional. My parents recommended her to me years ago, and I'm so glad I listened to their sound advice. Alicia assisted my husband and I with the purchase of our first home, a brand new condo, in 2003. As our housing needs have evolved over the years, Alicia has been with us every step of the way. She helped us sell our condo and purchase our next home in 2008, and most recently helped us sell that suburban home and purchase a historic home that my family and I love to pieces. Every once in awhile I'll hear a friend or colleague question whether or not real estate professionals are truly an essential piece of the process when buying or selling property, and I am always happy to explain to them that, in my experience, a knowledgeable and well-respected real estate professional is the key to success in any real estate transaction-- and then I promptly recommend Alicia. Aside from her extensive knowledge of properties, the community, and the real estate market, the quality that I appreciate most about Alicia is her commitment to developing and maintaining relationships with her clients. Months, even years, after the completion of a sale or purchase, Alicia is the first person I contact when I need a recommendation for any type of home repair or upgrade, and she is always there with a prompt reply and an excellent suggestion. Alicia is a top notch real estate professional in a competitive market, and I couldn't be happier with the sales and purchases I've made with her over the past 15 years.
