Giving (To Your Leasing Agent! Yes!!) so You Can Receive

What Clients are saying

Mackenzie is THE Real Estate Agent to hire! I have had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Laine on two separate occasions for a rental and a home purchase where her attention to my specific requests were her first priority! In a market with multiple offers, my offer was accepted without negotiations due to her skill of engaging the seller’s realtor and ensuring that the contract was fair. I mostly respect the details that were handled “behind the scenes” to have an effortless process and also her ability to keep me calm throughout the various steps.

I enthusiastically recommend Mackenzie for her professional advice, calmness, and ability to make a “roller-coaster” like process seem like a “walk in the park!”-Camille Major
