Wonderful experience working with Ralsie in finding our first home! She was very knowledgeable of local market trends, always on top of correspondence, and she definitely fought hard on our behalf in getting us our dream home in our dream neighborhood. We were lucky to have such an awesome realtor!
Ralsie is so easy to work with! She had an answer to every question we had and was always willing to go above and beyond. We’ll definitely buy another house with Ralsie again in the future!!
Ralsie was an incredible realtor and overall asset to our first time home buying experience. As a native Richmonder, she was very knowledgeable of the market and was able to identify options that fit our needs in many different Richmond neighborhoods. We would not have been able to buy a home in this crazy market had it not been for Ralsie’s persistence and expertise! Ralsie made our home-buying experience enjoyable, fast, and fun!
Ralsie was very knowledgeable and honest - not pushy at all! It felt very comfortable asking her questions. She helped us tremendously!
As a first time home buyer, I felt in great hands working with Ralsie. We looked at a number of houses together but she ended up reaching out to homeowners directly about their off-market house. She didn't shy away from writing a thoughtful letter on my behalf to the homeowners and we ended going through with it. Throughout the entire process from coordinating viewings to negotiations to inspections and scheduling work being done on the house she was highly communicative and eager to make the process as smooth as possible for me. I would recommend Ralsie to anyone in the homebuying process who wants a genuine, trustworthy, communicative, and knowledgeable Realtor!
Ralsie was great during the whole process and was in constant communication with me all the time. She was a great advocate for me.
