""Honestly, 5 stars is not enough to rate Sylvia! She is a "cut above the rest" & wonderful realtor. She went above & beyond with her diligence & helped me find the perfect beach house. Not only that, she helped me every step of the way all the way up to closing! She kept up with important milestones during the process, met with inspectors/engineers, ensured dates & documents were all taken care of. I had complete trust in her. She is down to earth & completely honest!! She is not out to sell a property to just sell it! She gives you the story on different listings & is more than helpful in finding exactly what you are looking for. She alone made the whole process completely painless, not to mention always responded to any email/text quickly with any & all the information I needed even if it was the 2nd or 3rd time I asked the question! If I ever need another realtor in the area, she is the ONLY choice for me! If you want a dependable, honest, and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE Realtor, call her""
