Testimonials

“Missy Cornejo took a very complicated real estate issue and provided a clear and concise response to a lawsuit which ultimately saved my family many thousands of dollars. She is an excellent communicator, responsive to inquiries for help, and very knowledgeable in every issue with which we had to address. Based on numerous consultations with her and her detailed submissions with respect to the situation we encountered, I highly recommend her for any real estate-related transaction.”
“I worked with Missy on a neighbor dispute issue. She was always quick to respond to my questions and gave me good advice without pushing me to make a decision on how I wanted to proceed. I appreciated her professionalism and courtesy.”
