"We met Lisa Desmond of Venema Homes sometime in 2019 as we were doing open homes and evaluating the Livermore area for a future move. It was late 2020 before we were ready to purchase our next home, and Lisa made such an impression on us that we called her to consider being our buyer agent. We spoke with several others also, but we were most comfortable and confident with Lisa. After several months of shopping, Lisa found us a home that fit our needs and budget, and the best part was she absolutely was looking out for our interests and protection each step of the way. The paperwork and process of shopping, evaluating, negotiating, and closing a deal on a home can be daunting. We greatly appreciate Lisa and her team's efforts to make the process smooth and successful!"
