 We make every effort to visit each of our home buyer clients at their new property in person after the sale. Usually, we give them a few weeks to get settled in after their move and call them to make an appointment to stop by and see how things are going, bring them a housewarming gift, answer any questions that they may have now that the real estate transaction is complete. This is a fun time for us to spend time with them in their home and not talk about real estate lol...however, most times our previous clients are the best sources of new business leads for us. Recently, we visited a past client who was both a home seller using our services and then a home buyer to purchase another property. They informed us that a neighbor in the subdivision just put up a small for sale sign trying...

  I was in the market for a house, so I called jeff safrin to assist me. Jeff and his wife grace were wonderful to work with and they answered all of my questions that I had. They were very easy to get a hold of and very nice. They kept up with everything about the house: always had the info, stayed on top of the banks and the sellers, made sure everything went smoothly. If any of my family or friends are in the market for a house, I would definitely recommend them. Brian sholar   Buying or selling a home in Northwest Indiana?

Kick in the holidays with the Crown Point Indiana annual tree lighting ceremony on Friday, November 16th at 5:30 pm. The event will take place on the east side of the old Crown Point courthouse.  Harmony Handbells and the Crown Point Choir will be performing. Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided by Wittenburg Lutheran Village. Anyone familiar with Crown Point is familiar with the tank that sits on the corner of Main St. and Goldsborough St..  The tank is lit up every year during the holidays in remembrance of U.S. troops past and present. The tank lighting ceremony will take place immediately following the tree lighting ceremony.  American Legion Post 20 will have the honor of doing this. ~ Covington subdivision home prices ~ ~ Crown Point Indiana market statistics ~
