"We knew from the first day we met Lisa that we wanted her to help us to find our family home. We looked for a year, but because there are so many buyers our offers were not accepted. Lisa was always positive and optimistic as she continued to search. She works so hard, but we needed to take a break from house hunting for now. When we start our search again we will definitely use Lisa Goodwill. We recommend her without a doubt. Thank you."

"We are happy to recommend Lisa Goodwill as a more than qualified real estate agent. Lisa is an extremely proactive sales professional. She is the epitome of a "Go Getter." We know that we are always in good hands with Ms.Goodwill. She does not wait for an opportunity to come to her, but rather chases after it. From the moment upon meeting Lisa, we were not looked upon as just another client. She went above and beyond to search and fill our every need. Lisa continues to furnish our home, helped us get settled, and has made it our family jewel. Lisa is the best real estate agent we know, and has been the ultimate blessing to our family. She stands by her words, honesty, integrity and goodwill. If you're searching for a humble, personal connection and someone who cares beyond just finding you your home, work with Lisa. You will not find a more dedicated, caring agent, and you will definitely not be disappointed. Cheers! The Cortez Family"

"Page 1 of 2 Dear Future Homeowner: I am delighted to write this letter recommending Lisa Goodwill as your realtor. She has made the experience of buying our first home smooth and wonderful. Lisa is very personable and has been a tenacious advocate for us. She works hard and goes out of her way and found us information about the neighborhood (ie education options for our child, etc) so that we were comfortable with our choices. Since she lived in Hillsborough, she kept us well informed of the listings (including ones not shown on MLS) in the area. She also referred us to her mortgage broker which made the financial process smoother and kept in touch with her constantly as we were closing on our house. Once we purchased our home, her desire to help us did not end there. (continued) "

"Continued from my recommendation below- Lisa is always positive and easy to work with. I really appreciated it throughout the offer and closing process where timelines are tight and contractual terms are tested. In my particular case Lisa had to take proactive steps to mitigate risks associated with the stakeholders and the terms of the contract. The actions from Lisa proved critical in order to close and prevent unforeseen costs. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would be happy to share my positive working relationship with Lisa."

"Buying a home is a big decision and there are many considerations along the way. It can be stressful and frustrating, especially in a seller’s market. Thinking back at it I remember it as nothing but great fun and I owe it all to Lisa. She helped navigate me through the process providing guidance, never pushing for quick decisions. Lisa is hard working, keeps deadlines, is very dependable and always makes sure anything from document signatures to disclosures and contractual terms are kept in order. I especially appreciated the time she took to explain and answer questions. I learned a lot and she made me feel safe and in control. She possesses a broad network of people who can support you; be it a home inspection, appraisal or one-time cleaning. Lisa has a high level of integrity, takes the time to explain documents, what risks a decision might result in and ensures that you understand where you are in the process. Lisa is always positive and easy to work with. (continue)"
