“Penny is truly a MARVELOUS person to work with! We truly appreciate her efforts and endurance. We can’t imagine there could be a better real estate agent on the face of this earth! Not only did we get a condo, but a new friend in the process. One of my favorite verses is, ‘Let your light shine before men so they will see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.’ Penny truly has a bright light. Thank you for letting your light shine Penny! May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand on your toes!” The McDaniel Family
