"When I returned from California in 2012, one of the primary goals I established was to buy a house. What has been a dream for 4 years finally became a reality today when I closed on a house which not only fits my budget but also suits my personality and idiosyncrasies perfectly. It's essentially a cabin deep in the woods with a creek running thru the yard. lol However, I am not embellishing or exaggerating when suggesting that none of this would have been possible without the help of my Real Estate Agent Rachel Alosky. Rachel is far too humble to take credit for the subtle influence she had in the process, but I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate her genuine and patient approach. Although she is confident in her ability, I don't think she has any idea exactly how talented she is. It was clear from the very beginning that she had my best interests at heart and understood that her success was intimately tied to helping me succeed which so many salespeople seem to rarely grasp these days. She was never pushy or focused on her own interests and was ALWAYS available anytime I needed her even for "stupid", "first-time buyer" questions which were in abundant supply during the time I was involved in a business relationship with Rachel. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home or just want advice from a genuine "salesperson" who is not just "in it for the money" then do not hesitate to contact Rachel Alosky at The Streppa Team! I had heard horror stories about buying and selling homes but with the help of Rachel and her team, the process was a breeze!"
