I absolutely love Madelaine LaVoie and her team at Cherie Miller & Associates. Madelaine sold me my home 7 years ago. She was fun, super knowledgeable, and made the process of buying a home easy and pleasant every step of the way. She and her people work together like parts of a super well-oiled machine that gets the job done with grace and precision.
