great business mentality. She's an amazing negotiator, and directing a
business myself, it is refreshing to work with someone who knows their
business and can get you the best deal possible."

I worked with her to purchase 27 acres in Paradise Valley, there were
several other bidders and we got the property because of her ingenuity.
