Getting an early start on a young couple's dream!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty


Getting an early start on finding the American Dream.I’m out early this Saturday morning helping a young couple find their own little piece of heaven.

Despite the fact that many doom and gloom prognosticators now blatantly state that home ownership is no longer the American dream, this couple recognizes that this is a great time to buy as a hedge against inflation and for the pride of ownership.

There is nothing more satisfying than being able to assist with such an important decision as buying their first house together. It’s an amazing part of this job that goes beyond money or career.

It’s changing lives in a genuine and meaningful way. And I fee that it’s pretty important work.

And I’m proud to be doing it!

Nothing more rewarding then helping a young client with their first purchase ... love it!  It is even more fun to see those first new homeowners mature, expand family and move again with you.  I feel like part of family as I receive the announcements of new additions and celebrate the birthdays .. it all makes this such a wonderful profession and gift to us.
