Katie Tillman’s local knowledge of Hartwell Lake, lake property values, and Army Corp regulations were instrumental in evaluating the lake houses, which she lined up for me.

Her prompt and knowledgeable responses always gave me confidence, while her integrity and trustworthiness always gave me reassurance. Thank you Katie Tillman for helping me buy my lake house!

Just wanted you to know what a professional job Kyle Corbett did in selling our lot. You do more than list; you market property and I’ve had enough experience to know the difference. We were also happy to meet the new owners and thought the whole transaction went smoothly. Thanks again for a job well done! Phillip Yon
