I wish I could give Merlin more stars! My house sold for full price in only 4 days. He was professional, caring, logical, personable, confident, and absolutely knows the real estate market. Merlin made the entire selling process as stress-free as possible. Thanks so much Merlin!

Merlin listed my home "For Sale" at 1.1 million and sold it for full price in one week, to a buyer he found! Merlin is an excellent Realtor and worked hard with negotiations between both parties. In a tough market Merlin showed me the value of a great agent. Thank you.
