“I can’t say enough nice things about Sylvia. She went through tall grass and very large grasshoppers for a house we wanted to look at, even though she didn’t have her boots! (True story.) I don’t know what we would have done without her. She made the whole process painless. Not only is she our Realtor and we’ll be using her again in the future, but we have made a new friend.” — Tina and Dale Ayers
“The service and personal attention we received from Sylvia Guess with Straight Up Realty was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! Her knowledge of the local market helped us in our search for our dream home. After patiently showing us many listings, she made sure we got the best value in the purchase of our home.
Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Sylvia to help you in your life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process.” — Adam Hart
