Open Houses

With schools starting and summer vacations at an end, the new selling season is upon us.  With that, sellers and agents who took some time off during the slower season are now eager to show off their houses again in the typical surge of open houses.  Buyers, this is your chance to see a lot of homes!  September 9, 2018 Open House Report

Personal Note

We enjoyed ourselves partaking in summer field games (A Tomato War) for charity.

Now, rested and ready for Autumn Selling Season!
