Val Farkas is the best realtor I ever worked with. While looking for a house Val suggested looking at 55 plus communities. I was very against the idea but went along with it. Guess what? I am buying in a 55+ community! I would have never been exposed to that idea without Val. If honesty, integrity and going above and beyond are important to you, there is no other choice than Val!

We have moved many times over the years. Patti Rambo at Miscella Real Estate proved to be the most professional, pleasant and easy going real estate company/agent that we have EVER dealt with. Patti made the transition run remarkably smooth and was readily available at all times. Although we had just met, we feel as if we have known her forever and soon became friends. We have NEVER had such a relaxing time selling and buying a house before. We would highly recommend working with Miscella and Patti Rambo. Tara A.
My husband and I were referred to Debbie Gurley by our neighbor. Debbie was very prompt for our first meeting and provided pertinent literature about our home in relation to the homes in the area. Debbie made appropriate suggestions in regards to marketing our home. Together, we developed short and long-term goals in order to sell our home. Debbie went to work immediately. She hired a professional photographer and prepared a well-described listing of our home. She advertised our home on relevant websites and home magazines and always kept us in informed of the market trends and her strategy to sell our property. We had moved out of state and Debbie went above and beyond her role as merely a realtor. She watered the outdoor plants, arranged to have an office desk picked up for charity, and made safety checks on our house. Debbie provided excellent service from the beginning to the very end of the home selling process. I would recommend Debbie if you are in need of a detail oriented, well organized, trustworthy, and strategically oriented realtor. Amy S.
As the Managing Broker, I am so happy to have Val Farkas on the Miscella Real Estate Team! Her commitment to clients, positive approach, and her willingness to step up and help others (both in and out of the office) is infectious. Whether buying, selling or renting - Val is a great choice for all residential real estate needs. Patti Rambo
As a first time home buyer, I could not have asked for a nicer, more professional, more resourceful agent than Debbie Gurley. Debbie has an incredible work ethic and came highly recommended by the best in the business. Deb has guided and educated me through the process and is always available to answer questions with patience, kindness and most of all vast experience. I would highly recommend Debbie Gurley. Judy S.
Patti, you were true to your word and steered us through the unenviable task of selling our challenging property, it was not an easy process but we all persevered. I imagine you have done a lot less work for far bigger returns in your career so I want to put on record how we very much appreciate the level of help given to us. I would find it impossible not to recommend you to a friend. Pete and Nancy
Everyone may start their home search on the intranet, but when people get serious about buying, they want, and need, a real person to advise them. I think it is great that Miscella has kept personal attention to their client at the forefront of their efforts. Their extensive local market knowledge is invaluable because they will understand what is important to you when you go to buy or sell your home. Matt P.
