Meet The Team

Spring is here and sales are starting to heat for the Spring market. There are a lot of properties going on the market. This year we have seen many multiple offer situations. That means there are several buyers making offers on the same home. This is a great situation for sellers as they are able to maximize the most out of their home's value. Interest rates remain low which allows buyers to qualify for a larger home. For those of you who already own a home, make sure you have a competitive interest rate. If you have not refinanced in the past few years, you might be able to save hundreds of dollars on your mortgage payment. We are always here for you if you have any real estate questions. If you are looking to sell, we have a great marketing plan that we would be happy to share with you. If you are looking to buy, we have fantastic Buyer's Agents who will listen to your needs and find you the perfect home! Happy Spring! We look forward to hearing from you! Give us a call today at 939-HOME or 281-HOME. We are also available by email at
