He knew how to price our home to sell (we had an offer in 12 days) and gave good advice on preparing our home to show. What I love most about Hal is his honesty and integrity. He's completely above board, and his no-pressure stance made us comfortable through the whole process, right through our smooth closing. I would recommend him to anyone!"
