You will be surprised when going into Hopkinton Drug if you are expecting a typical drugstore. It is far from that! I would call it a specialty store that has a wide variety of items including a great selection of greeting cards, nick nacks, magazines, as well as snack items.

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
