Testimonial 1

“Cassie French just sold my home and was such a joy to work with that I continued working with her to find my new home as well! She’s THAT good!! She constantly updated me as to the market conditions and my home in particular. She edited my home to perfection. She knows what sells a home. She is also a fabulous decorator btw!

We met at a showing and she was very knowledgeable and helpful and we hit it off immediately. She is extremely dedicated and very detail oriented. She is the hardest working woman I know and has incredible patience with the entire process. Thank goodness because sometimes I don’t. Cassie made the entire journey of selling and buying a new home enjoyable, if this is even possible! We love our new home so much! There were some challenging sellers out there and she is a brilliant negotiator. She got me my dream home!! She is a straightforward person and held my hand when I was “losing it.” She is the whole package and is truly the greatest realtor out there right now. I never write reviews but Cassie is by far in my opinion the “IT GIRL!”

Testimonial 2
“I had the pleasure of working with Cassie French as my realtor, and I must say, she is a hard worker! Not only did she take the time to listen to my needs and concerns, but she also went above and beyond to ensure I got the best possible outcome.
Cassie provided valuable insights on what small renovations would give the best return on investment for my house. She even went a step further and staged the home to attract buyers. Her attention to detail and commitment to making the home look its best truly paid off in the end.
I followed along with her listing strategy which sold my home for more than I anticipated, and she negotiated the price up with only one offer! The house was only listed for 24 hours before it was in escrow, but I have to say it was all about the preparation before listing my home on the market.
I would highly suggest Cassie French to anyone who wants to feel like their realtor goes above and beyond the call of duty. Cassie was professional, knowledgeable, and truly cared about getting the best results for me. She was always available when I had questions or concerns, and she made the entire selling process seamless and stress-free.
Overall, my experience with Cassie was great, and I can’t thank her enough for her hard work and dedication. If you’re looking for a top-notch realtor who will go the extra mile for you, then call Cassie French!”
