“The Licata group was extremely helpful in our search for a new home as our family moved to Virginia. They were very professional during the full purchase process. As a buyer, I appreciated that John Licate did not show home he liked, but listened to to us and our needs. Also he stuck to the budget we presented him with. The Licata Group showed and explained the community ammenities and were upfront about HOA fees and other ammenity fees. What sold me most about John is that his word was good. I met John 3 years prior to buying from him and asked him about home value increases and decreases in lake of the woods. I checked what he said for 3 years and he was spot on. As a former home builder, I have had many experiences with realtor and most tend to oversell. My experience with the Licata group was my best.” – N. Schroeder

It was on a Friday and she worked diligently throughout the entire weekend until we had a ratified contract by Monday. She responded very quickly to all of our emails, phone calls and text messages.
