Real estate is always a "hot" topic and there has been no shortage of media coverage and speculation on what is happening in our market. April was very strong for us - we achieved 3rd in the Top Teams Category in our office. Thanks so very much for your business, support and referrals. We love what we do and enjoy helping you reach your real estate dreams!


Time for a Move - Check out your Options!


It is always a great time to buy a home - to set some roots & create a long term investment. Interest rates remain historically low making it much easier to transition into the market as a 1st time buyer or to sell & leverage profits from your present home & move up. As well - many clients are seeing this as an opportunity to use some of the equity they have in their present home & buy investment property or fund a down payment to help a child get into the market. Whatever your scenario is we would be happy to sit down and chat about your options to maximize the market to suit your personal needs.
