This is our second time working with Rachael. Rachael did an amazing job gauging the market and nailing our listing price. She took as much stress out of selling and buying a house simultaneously as she could and was always available and willing to answer any questions or listen to us air our concerns. She's incredibly down to earth, respectful, and cares about her clients and their interests. Would highly recommend!



Rachael is very professional and was an excellent realtor for us in our sale of our farm and the purchase of our new house. We highly recommend her! She brought a drone to our farm and took wonderful pictures to market our place. We had many showings! We had a lot of interested people and at least three qualified and potential buyers at the end of the process making offers. We are happy with the couple who made the final purchase.



Provided excellent advice and support. Tremendous work ethic and put in whatever time was needed to accomplish the tasks at hand. Answered any and all of my questions. And I had a ton of questions because it has been years since I sold a house and things have changed dramatically. 95% of the time her responses to questions and issues were extremely fast. Very calm and reassuring under the rigors and stress of negotiations. Was very please to have Rachael on my side.



I can't express how grateful we are to have had Rachael as our realtor. couldn't have asked for a more attentive, thorough or professional realtor to work with as we sold and are looking to purchase a home. Rachael always made herself available and made the process so easy for us!

From the beginning, Rachael was very well prepared and organized to lead us through the process of selling our parent's home. She was patient with all of our questions, and took care of everything with the utmost attention to detail. She clearly demonstrated a deep knowledge of the buying/selling trends for the area where the home was situated, and it sold for just very slightly under the listing price. Would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking to sell a home.



Amazing! She’s so easy to work with and super helpful. She was always quick to respond, especially when we had urgent questions. She was also willing to show us the house several times so both our families could see it. It made the experience really easy!

We worked with Rachael for the sale of our previous house and Michele Craver from her team for the purchase of our new house. Both Rachael and Michele were incredibly responsive (most times having answers to our questions within minutes), knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. We could not have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend them. The whole process was very well organized and smooth from start to finish.



I was a first timeHome buyer and Michele was exceptional to work with! Explained everything- all the process-and was patient with all my questions. Michele was available anytime I needed her.



Rachael and her team were great to work with throughout the entire process. She was everything and more I expected in a realtor - professional, knowledgeable, prompt, dependable, hardworking and clearly had my best interests in mind.



She was amazing, The sale was challenging because it involved the sale of a house owned by a cooperation and was subdivided before the sale. Could not have asked for a more aggressive and patient person to help us.



Linking up with Rachael was a very happy coincidence for us. We called her because she was the selling agent for the first home that we fell in love with on Zillow. After meeting her and realizing that she could show us all of the homes that we were interested in, we decided to take her on as our agent. It was the best decision that we could have made. Not only was she very insightful about the homes and the market that we were buying into, Rachael always seemed to find a way to work into our busy schedule. She really went above and beyond the call of duty for us and because of her efforts, we were able to find our dream home in a matter of weeks! Best of all, Rachael is extremely kind, caring, and professional. We have no doubt that she is the real estate agent that will be a valuable addition to anyone's team!

My wife and I were first time homebuyers that found Rachael through reviews on Zillow and approached her about helping us find a house. She was excellent at explaining the process, very active with facilitating the negotiations, offering negotiating tactics and extremely responsive to any questions we had. Even a month after closing she responded immediately regarding questions about the home warranty that had come with the house. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a solid negotiator and someone who easily explains issues the lay person may not understand.



Rachael was more than professional. She consistently went out of her way to both find our dream home, negotiate the final price and had our house sold after only 8 days on the market. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!! She is simply the best!



Rachael was very knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Being out of town selling a home, we relied on her greatly. We certainly would recommend Rachael to any seller or buyer!



Rachel provided me with excellent customer service . She is more traditional ( old school ) even though she is young . She was able to offer me so many options for any concerns that I have with reasonable , logical explanation. I did feel that she is very flexible and can handle any unexpected situations with open and creative mind ( still traditional) . 6 months contract is a long commitment ,She trusted me before she asked me to trust her. Thank you



It was a true pleasure to work with Rachael. Communication was exceptional and she returned text message's at all times of the day! She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and very patient explaining everything. House was on the market 15 days before it sold, and she had already shown it to very many people and had a open house.I will certainly use her again.



Rachael provided us rookie sellers the information and guidance we needed to get an offer is less than three weeks and get an effortless closing. She showed the house and worked with other realtors to show the house frequently, that resulted in the quick sale.



Rachael is wonderful to work with! She was very accommodating to our schedule. She suggested this house for us to see that wasn't on our "list" and we ended up buying it. We would definitely recommend her to others.



Racheal was awesome this is the first time we sold a house. I felt she explained everything and answered all our questions, and we had a lot. This was a difficult decision for us since we were in our house for 35 years, she made it easy for us and found the right people to buy our house. I have recommended her to everyone I know that is buying or selling.



We had a great experience with Rachael. She is professional, responds quickly to email and other communications. Rachael was successful in selling our home and helping us secure our dream home.



I love Rachael. She helped me sell my grandmas house within 2 weeks of listing it. She made everything smooth and easy for me during a very difficult time in my life. Communication was very easy. She always got back to me in a timely manner with any questions I had. Couldn't recommend her more.



Rachael has been a wonderful realtor. She is both very professional and personable. We will certainly recommend her to family & friends, and plan to use her again for any future moves.



Rachael is always very responsive and great to deal with, would absolutely recommend her! Her advice has been helpful while we are selling and buying a house. My wife and I first met Rachael 2+ years ago when just considering to sell. At that time the market was saturated and we were in no hurry. Now that the market is in a better place for us, she called us up and we listed our home. She arranged for a stager to come in and helped us make an offer on another home. Her advice has been educational and very much appreciated. Thanks!


I can't recommend her enough. She helped me list and sel my grandmas house within 2 weeks. She took all her own photos. She was kind. She was considerate. Whenever I had questions, she promptly responded. Didn't matter what time of the day it was. She went above and beyond for me. She even offered to let the dye test inspectors into the house so I wouldn't have to drive an hour to open the door. She made my hard times of losing a loved one into a flawless sale. I could go on and on. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with her.
