 What Past Clients Say About Pamela Trapani

-Very helpful and professional. I appreciate her willingness to handle emergencies and manage all facets of my property. I also like the fact that she notified me immediately if there were any problems. She gave me peace of mind. What more can I say. - September Gray 

-In general, I have very little use for real estate agents. Pamela is the RARE exception, she is literally available ANYTIME she knows her stuff and ALWAYS answers her phone. She is a real life actual full-time real estate agent, in a world of subpar part-time wannabes. If you are serious about selling your home FAST and want to get your money’s worth out of an agent who is unstoppable-- CALL PAMELA NOW and do exactly what she tells you to do!!!!!!! Our house was under contract in 21 days. – Jason Lawrence 

-Pamela has helped us buy and sell several homes. She is very professional and knowledgeable.  She always worked very hard to get us the very best deal whether we were sellers or buyers. We highly recommend her for all real estate needs. - Joe and Toni Imsand

-I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Pamela Trapani. From the very beginning of our professional relationship, she has been knowledgeable, dedicated and patient. As someone who was relocating from NYC, I had no idea of what to expect and where to begin looking for a rental. Pamela gathered information over the phone, and the day after I arrived she was able to show me a long list of properties to rent. Of course, when it was time to purchase a home 6 months later, we didn’t hesitate to go with Pamela. She continues to be helpful with any questions that we have, even though we have already purchased and have moved in. It’s such a great feeling to know that whatever comes up, I can call Pamela and know that she is always willing to help. I would highly recommend her to any friends, family or co-workers.

-Pam is an awesome agent! She's always on top of things and always makes herself available.                     – Nicole Ransom

 -Pamela is an exceptionally professional and personable person, an all around great woman to work with.

 –Collin Hencklein
-Pamela, was on the ball from the first day. Active in research and promoting our home. Very smart in the finance side of the sale and in the negotiation with the buyer. Very smart, caring and optimistic. She helped keep me grounded when the emotions got the best of me. She puts her heart and soul in to getting the best for you and the sale of your home. – Sally & Bob Koether

-Pamela was extremely helpful during my house hunting quest. She listened to what I was looking for, and very patiently helped me go through the search process. I lost count of the number of houses I viewed, but she managed to stay on top of things and helped me to keep the details straight. I can't wait for her to help me with my next home purchase, as well as the sale of my current home. -Christie Kelley

-Pamela helped my husband and I rent a home in 2011. We were so pleased with her service that the following year, we asked her to help us purchase a home. I would not categorize myself as particularly easy to please, but Pamela consistently jumped through hoops to make sure that everything was taken care of. She was very organized and thorough throughout the whole renting AND buying process and we ended up with a home we love. I would highly recommend Pamela to any of my friends and family and will continue to use her services.    -  Melanie Gallo 

- Just like first time home buying...first time home selling also very confusing. Pamela navigated us through this process calmly and smoothly. She is very hard-working agent who is very responsive. – Subra & Sujata
