"Working with Fontaine was a joy. She made my purchase and sale seem easy. I felt she had my best interest in mind at all times."

"Fontaine really made us understand the process and kept us informed at all times. She stayed in touch after the sale as well."

" As a first time homebuyer, Fontaine took her time with us every step of the way. She was great at explaining things to us and making sure we were taken care of even after the closing. We felt like she worked with us and for us through the process and made buying our first home a great and exciting experience instead of overwhelming and stressful."
