Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Ridgewood, NJ

Working with Frances was the best. She is truly the expert on Ridgewood real estate, and was a pleasure to work with. She makes you feel comfortable every step of the way and does an excellent job negotiating for her clients. My husband and I were moving from an NYC rental apartment and Frances  helped us buy our first home together. Highly recommend working with Frances!
