After getting an enthusiastic recommendation from our highly trusted mechanic, we decided to reach out to Nicole Markson as a possible resource in our search for a new car. My husband and I are both busy professionals, but aren't necessarily averse to doing the work involved in purchasing a new vehicle. We decided to enlist Mrs. Markson's help. We are so very glad we did!! Because of her longstanding relationship with various car dealerships, and her determined and friendly personality, Nicole was immediately about to locate a vehicle that met with our requirements. I think if we had tried to search on our own we would have met with an extended wait time. She arranged all of the paperwork and made the transaction easier than we could have ever imagined. She also negotiated a great price on the new car and saved us entire days of being on the phone and traveling to car dealers. We appreciated that she followed up with us on every step of the purchase so we were always in the loop. Nicole Markson is a true professional whom I would hire again without a second thought!
