    Rosemary Beckett

    Licensed Sales Consultant

    Everything She Is After nearly ten years at Holmwood many homeowners know of Rosemary Beckett’s unique capability for selling real estate. They know about the focus the former designer and project manager delivers to every task, the efficiency and skill she brings to planning, marketing and negotiating. When you’re this successful, word gets around. Her stellar reputation covers what she can do – so here are some things you won’t get from her service. For one, she won’t ever push clients to commit to anything they may not be entirely happy with. Taking the time and making sure everything’s in the right place is essential. She doesn’t do things by the numbers. While some are content to follow convention Rosemary brings a new perspective. So her clients receive service that’s truly original and effective. And she doesn’t sit back and hope for the best. She gives it everything. All her expertise, her vision, her dedication. That’s why, when selling your property, it’s as much everything Rosemary’s not that makes her everything that’s right for you.
