clarksville: The Home Inspector Should Have Found This! - 11/22/17 10:03 AM

Live the Life of Luxury
This is the pool and landscaped areas behind a luxury home I had listed for sale.

My buyer was all about the view. Not only did she want a pretty view from the back windows and deck, she wanted to see trees and lovely landscape when she stood on her … (6 comments)

Enjoy the Day
Today is celebrated in a big way all over America. Estimates are that 179 million Americans will be celebrating the day. This is record-breaking.
