|I'd praise Monique for the absolutely tremendous job she performed for me throughout the entire process of a successful Short Sale of my home. The success would not have been possible without Monique's hard work and diligence in working with me, the buyer, and the lender to complete all required, while she remained focused on my interests as her client. Monique's professionalism and her contacts in working through the process were invaluable. After the successful Short Sale, she then worked with me very closely to find a home to rent. She went far and beyond what I expected to represent my interests and ensured all of my rights were properly take care of. I look forward to our next venture together, purchasing another home!|
|Monique Fountaine handled a very sensitive and complicated short sale transaction for me. The bank was its usual self asking for and requiring items of no relevance to the sale. Monique kept me informed of the day to day issues and was convincing to the lender that many of their request were of no relevance and thus dropped as conditions and requirements. My next short sale will be with Monique and her firm.|
