Lovette was wonderful to work with, just the best. We felt like she always went the extra mile to be there with us and to guide us with her insights, professionalism, and experience. Beyond that, we always knew and felt that she cared deeply about finding something that would make us happy, and she guided us throughout the process, making it as easy as possible.
