According to Apartment List, “From 1990 to 2005, the number of single-family permits issued more than doubled, while the number of multi-family permits grew by 49 percent.” When the housing market crashed, the number of … Continue reading

Client Testimonials

“Hilary helped us purchase our home in Santa Clarita in March of 2016. We weren\'t from the area and had to rely on her heavily, both to help us learn about the neighborhoods and keep the transaction moving. She did the best job possible in both regards.

Hilary is extremely friendly, responsive, and professional. From our very first meeting, we got the feeling that she was extremely invested in finding us the right home. All the subsequent hard work she did served to reaffirm that.

We ended up selecting a home that was in high demand, and since we were using an out of area lender, there were a few hiccups in the transaction. These had nothing to do with Hilary\'s end of things, but could have been big problems, except Hilary was there to go above and beyond and make sure the transaction went smoothly. We didn\'t even know about many of the \"problems\" until after Hilary had already resolved them. We are so grateful at the amazing job she did, we can\'t recommend her highly enough.”
