“Chris and Kristen were awesome! My 85 year old mother has been suffering with Parkinson’s and it was decided her 2 bedroom/2 bath Pismo Beach vacation home, which had been a rental the last few years, needed to be sold. We live in Los Angeles, and from afar, they helped get things in shape and sell it quickly. So knowledgeable, effective and fast in finding good repair people, and dependable in all areas. We got a good price with this kind and easy-to-work with duo. A million thanks! Julie, Carole, Brad and Roy”-Julie Gonella
