In our 22 combined years in real estate, we can't remember when the housing inventory has been so low.   It's great for our sellers, no doubt.   It's TOUGH for buyers out there in our market.   We sent a new listing (1 day on the market) to one of our buyers yesterday.   The listing agent called ...

No.   We've worked under the umbrella of giant companies before we broke out on our own.   Stats are cool.  Numbers are cool.  Volume is cool.   You know what really matters?  The service you get from your real estate agent.   We pride ourselves on communication, knowledge and educating our buyer...

We work with a lot of first time home buyers, second time home buyers, and on and on...   Our experience has been that during every transaction there are other people involved in the decisions.   Parents.  Friends.  Co-workers.  Cousin Sally.   You know the drill.   Sometimes having another set o...

Typically most sellers wait until early Spring to list their homes for sale in the Fort Wayne area.   2016 is NOT the year to do that!   SPRING HAS SPRUNG! Housing inventory is SO low right now it's ridiculous.   Sellers are getting multiple offers within 24 hours of listing.   Prices are slowly ...
