""Mimi Osterdahl was great! We would very much recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. My wife and I were first time home-sellers - and she took the time to explain every step of the process to us, in as much detail as we asked for. She helped us every step of the way; from the details needed to start selling a home, through staging, photography and connecting with the potential buyers' agents. What's more (for us at least), she was responsive to emails and phone calls and very knowledgeable and friendly. Really, she's a very easy to get along with person, warm and funny and took a personal, vested interest in helping us sell our home. She knew the market and the neighborhood and helped us get as much from our home sale as we could have wished for. Highly recommended!"
