"Was matched with a wonderful selling agent. She was responsive, thorough, and I felt like she was really working to listen to me and negotiate in a way that I was most comfortable with, rather than just trying to make a quick deal. Excellent experience and a very significant cost savings on the commission. Would highly recommend!"

"The agent assigned to us was top notch. Every challenge we encountered in getting our home ready for sale he had a resource to solve it. We also saved about six thousand dollars on fees, which is why we chose Clever Real Estate in the first place. We were very happy with a first rate experience in selling our home."
