"Sylvia Rhodes was and is a very hard worker, and a go getter. I called her and within thirty minutes she returned my call. Within the next 30 minutes she has sent me information on every house I told her I was interested in. She met with me the following night instead of pushing me off to a later date. She was always available for all of my questions no matter how small no matter weekday or weekend. I will suggest her to anyone looking into buying."

"Being a first-time homebuyer with an extremely tight time frame of less than three months to secure a property, I consider myself blessed to have connected with Sylvia Rhodes as my real estate agent. Sylvia displayed an unwavering commitment by dedicating considerable time and effort on a daily basis, including weekends, to identify suitable properties, and conduct virtual tours through video calls to show those properties to me, since I was located out of state. Her responsiveness to my queries, as well as her efforts to accommodate my requests, were truly commendable. Sylvia's work ethic, professionalism, and strong determination were truly exceptional. Her dedication extended beyond the ordinary, as she left no stone unturned to ensure her clients found their dream homes. What impressed me the most was her proactive approach in leveraging all available resources, including seeking expert opinions on legal and technical aspects of properties. I am particularly grateful for Sylvia's pivotal role, as her hard work and expertise led me to secure an excellent deal within a remarkably short period in this highly competitive market. Without her guidance and tireless commitment, I am uncertain if I would have been able to secure such a favorable outcome. For this, I am forever appreciative and thankful to her."
