What a beautiful settlement.
This  family was able to show love, respect and appreciation for each other.
 
 

 
This is evidence that real estate is not just about sticks and bricks. It is about the people, the dreams and their hopes.
I am so proud to be a part of making it happen.
Thank you to my kind sellers, the entire buyer's family, the lender and the title company.
It takes a team that wants to make it work.

  On Thursday I called my seller to tell him I needed to meet with him in the afternoon. He did not know it but there was an offer on his home.
