"We had a wonderful experience with Clever and our realtor. The commission fee was very reasonable and our realtor was exceptionally well versed in the real estate market. She handled EVERYTHING for us and we were very pleased with her advice and assessment of the housing market. She definitely did her homework and brought in a professional photographer to highlight our home. Her review along with the professional photos made our showings double and our viewings on websites like Zillow almost quadruple"
