I was first introduced to Ray Hoess-Brooks when I expanded my search from Massachusetts to Connecticut. Ray was licensed in both states making him an extremely desirable Realtor, as I was open to options and locations. Upon my first showing, I immediately knew Ray was the person who would find me my dream home. He was kind, attentive, extremely responsive and funny! I was very overwhelmed, as I was a first time home buyer, but Ray made the entire process simple, painless and carefree. Each step of the way, Ray was there to guide me, answers any and all questions I had and to keep my spirits up when small problems would arise (as they do with most home purchases!). I am so thankful Ray was recommended to me as I could not have imagined going through this process with anyone else. My 12 year old daughter looked forward to each phone call and meeting with Ray as he always had her smiling, even in the moments when she was a little bummed about moving. Ray is professional, compassionate and determined. I have recommended him to many family members who will be purchasing/selling in the near future. There is no one better for the job!
