Brigid is the consummate professional. I am a real estate attorney and was so impressed with the way she handled the sale of client's home that my wife Kim and I hired her when we decided to sell our own home.
We searched for a Contemporary style home in Miami for almost a year. Brigid never gave up and found us a lot in a gated community in Coconut Grove with architectural plans for The Lorax House by Alan Shulman, architect of the year. We've built our dream house and have her to thank.
Persistence pays! Brigid was unbelievable to work with. There was one obstacle after another when we were looking for our home but she showed grace under pressure and helped us navigate through it. We ended up with the home of our dreams thanks to her hard work.
