"I hired Renee to sell a town home I owned in Columbia. She came highly recommended and i learned why. She is knowledgable and a tenacious person. Her follow up is phenomenal. She can be both sweet and when necessary rolls up her sleeves and gets people moving like a drill sergeant. Nice person all around, great Realtor"

"I give my highest recommendation to Renee Mankoff, who was our real estate agent for the sale of my mother’s house. This was a complicated transaction because my mother lived across the country from us, and we had to find an agent who could work long-distance with us. Renee came highly recommended from another real estate agent friend, and she certainly lived up to her reputation. Renee met with us promptly the first time we were visiting my mom’s house, to establish the general groundwork we’d be following. She was 100 percent timely and reliable, always available to answer questions by phone or email, and completely on top of all the steps we’d have to take to complete the transaction. In fact, she saved us from several potentially serious missteps. Though the transaction could easily have gotten bogged down in long-distance details, it went smoothly, from start to finish. Renee recommended a realistic price, we received a strong offer four days after we listed it, and Renee and the escrow agent she chose made sure the whole process went off without a hitch. Renee proved herself to be smart, ethical, experienced, and just a great collaborator. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good experience in selling a house."

"Renee was great to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us to find a house on a tight schedule. She is with you every step of the process and helps to answer any questions that might arise. She is very in tune with your specific desires and won't waste your time looking at houses that aren't right for you. We would definitely use her again and recommend her to our friends."
