About

“Seeing a couple’s eyes light up when they walk into their future home for the first time. Hearing a seller scream with delight when I tell them they’ve received multiple offers on their home. That’s what I love most about working in real estate. Getting my clients to those types of moments is always my goal.” – Hilary Harvanek
