My blog consists of a variety of useful information pertaining to real estate news and information I come across during my working days! My intention is to educate you on all of your real estate options and choices when it comes to investing in the Monterey County Real Estate Market. As your consultant, I provide you with "news so you can choose" rather than "tell you so I can sell you." Please feel free to review my real estate background, interview me and ask questions to establish that my team and I are the right fit for your short- and long-term real estate goals.
