We had Megan List our home to sell and we had a full offer with 48 hours of putting the sign in the yard. Megan was amazing to work with during the entire process. I have bought and sold several homes and would highly recommend Megan. She is not only caring, patient and organized, but she is also incredibly knowledgeable. Megan will be my “Forever Go To Realtor”.
