"Evelyn is a highly skilled, experienced, and resourceful real estate professional. We had to sell our home rather quickly due to an out of state relocation. And we're glad she represented us and was our point of contact as we moved before the home was sold. Her knowledge and professionalism really stand out. We always felt she was forthright and gave us the information we needed to process any given issue and make an informed decision - which we never felt pressured one way or another. We're very happy with her and would highly recommend anyone with real estate needs to consider Evelyn."

"Evelyn Fred is the consummate real estate professional. She walked us through the entire process from beginning to end no matter how many questions we had. In fact, whenever I said I had a silly question, her reply was always, "I love questions!" Evelyn's style is patient and efficient, but she also protects her clients with her deep knowledge of the market, which makes her a highly respected real estate professional who can bring an equally talented slew of experts to the table. Evelyn knew how to market our home, dissipate our worries, and guided us as we found our dream home! She is also bilingual, which is a bonus. I highly recommend Evelyn Fred!"

"Evelyn helped my wife and I sell our home quickly and find another home just as quickly. She is professional, trustworthy, knowledgable, and very responsive. However, she also looks out for you as though you were family and "goes to bat" for you each and every time. We will recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. Evelyn Fred is unmatched!"
