"She is my very friendly neighbour since 2008, also she is a well-known professional real estate specialist."

"Poyen Gono was very helpful throughout the process! Starting with finding a home, I could tell that she was very experienced and knew the area well. She showed us a variety of homes within my price range so that I knew I would be satisfied with my new home. After I decided which home I wanted to buy, the rest was smooth sailing. Poyen took care of organizing all the paperwork, connected me with a good loan agent, and guided me throughout the process. I knew that I could trust her, because she worked with integrity and considered my needs throughout our interaction. In the end, we got a great deal on the property, saved about 50k. What I thought would be a stressful experience was stress free with the guidance and expertise of Poyen. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends."

"We first met Poyen recently during her open house at a property across the street from us. What started out as a curiosity, led to the selling and buying of a new house within six months. Poyen was able to help us see how we could move according to our changing family needs and financial situation. We found her negotiation skills are excellent. She was able to help us get the selling price much higher than our asking price for our house. She was able also to negotiate an acceptable price for what we wanted to buy. We were delighted to find that she speaks several different languages, and this was a plus in so many ways. She is an excellent communicator. Poyen has connections and knowledge that help her navigate what were for us uncertain waters. She stayed close by us through every step of the way and was always sensitive to our needs. She treated us as family and became our friend. You don't often find someone like her who takes pride in their work and is committed to excellence. T"

"Poyen was wonderful to work with. She is very knowledgable, professional, honest and dedicated to her clients. She was always available to answer any of our question. She helped us find a great house for our expanding family and had our best interest in mind throughout the process. Moreover, she went above and beyond in selling our old house. She had resources ready for gardening, cleaning, staging and more. Her team made our old house looked magnificent for open house. With her good negotiation skill, we sold our house at the best price possible. I'd highly recommend Poyen as your realtor."
