They were great!

Our realtor Lisa walked us through building our new home and selling our old one!

She sold our current home in 4 DAYS! 

We had a great experience and highly recommend them!


The Papasan team was great to work with during our first time home buying experience!

The team was great with communication and always provided updates to any changes that occurred in our contract.

We worked closely with Lisa America, who was super patient with us, honest, knowledgeable, and transparent. She was very patient with my partner and I, who are first time home buyers, where she was always available to answer any questions and made us feel like we weren't lost.

I highly recommend working Lisa and the Papasan team if you're a first time homebuyer. We were lucky enough to have Lisa help us buy our very first home where she made the process smooth.

Thank you, Papasan Properties! Can't wait to work with you guys again!


Papasan Properties were so amazing during our home selling & buying experience.

Lisa Mergen, our realtor was the best!

Lisa and her team were very responsive, always took care of tough situations, and made us feel like part of the family.
