Her client, T. Gay had this comment
“I can’ t thank Sissy Lappin enough for her commitment to making sure that we got what our house was worth! When we consulted with a major firm, we were told to list our house 20% less than what it sold for. Not to mention, Lappin Properties commission was also less than other firms’ standard 6%. I give Lappin Properties a grade A, and my family couldn’t be more satisfied with their services. “
