""Mimi Osterdahl not only helped me buy my house and get great financing, she also worked closely with longtime associates in the business—including mortgage brokers, land title companies, inspectors and many others—to ensure the deal went through. She was professional throughout, but brought a much-needed human touch to the proceedings. Without a doubt, I would recommend Mimi Osterdahl to anyone interested in buying a house or selling a house—or even thinking about it. I cannot understate how much I appreciate the invaluable assistance Ms. Osterdahl provided to me." "
