I am super-thankful to these two sellers who took it upon themselves to pose in front of my sign when their home sold.  They were so happy that they wanted to thank me.  I love this photo and I'm grateful for so many wonderful clients over the years.

What is PFA? Pulled from the air.   By now, all or most of us understand that the value of a home is what a buyer is willing to offer and a seller is willing to accept- right? I thought it might be a good idea to revisit pricing a home and how a seller can (and should) arrive at a price range to...

I was showing a home the other day and was overwhelmed with some exotic scent the moment I set foot in the home. It was truly nauseating and was having the opposite effect on visitors (at least my group) than what the sellers intended. The sellers had a large dog and they may have been trying to ...
