"Karissa was able to sell our property in just a few months. Before she became our agent, this property was on the market for over 2 years with little interest.
Karissa brought new life to the listing with her advertisements and tenacity. She also researched and discussed the historical zoning restrictions with City leaders so that she would have a clear understanding of Jonesborough's expectations for anyone building on this land.
