'Lewis represented us in the purchase of our investment property in Rockland. Being hundreds of miles away left us feeling a bit uneasy about how our remote real estate search process would go. Working with Lewis quickly dispelled those uneasy feelings. Lewis' keen knowledge of neighborhoods combined with his ability to provide a straight-forward, honest assessment of potential properties was invaluable to us. When we found our home, Lewis continued to be a wonderful advocate for us throughout the purchase process, going above and beyond what we expected to ensure that all of our deadlines were met, all of our questions were answered and all of our concerns were addressed. He has continued to be a wonderful advocate for us by providing excellent area referrals and recommendations whenever we've needed to call upon him. Working with Lewis was an absolute pleasure - we couldn't have been happier with our agent.'
