“All I can say is PHENOMENAL woman! Yes, that describes my agent Mrs. Altimese Dees. I had to relocate to California (voluntarily) in order to maintain employment. Of course first thought “my house” and renting was not an option. The day my co-worker introduced me to Mrs. Dees is when everything took a turn for the good! She was so efficient and professional, I was blown away….I say this because my agent prior to her was the total opposite. She took offers upon offers, but we never settled for anything less than what was BEST for me. I’ll never forget the day she called and said, “We’ve closed!” I wanted to jump through the phone and give her a BIG HUG!! I refer her to all my family, friends, and co-workers in Georgia…..Thank you again to the BEST DARN Realtor in Georgia!!”
