Beam & Branch Realty ~ Farm & Ranch
Farm and ranch real estate is a very specialized discipline that requires knowledge, experience, and specialized skills.

Once again, Beam & Branch Realty is thrilled to welcome a new and shining star agent, Mandy Wright.

Mandy and her husband and son are relatively new to the Granbury area after living in east Texas. When they discovered Granbury, there was no turning back. They have settled in nicely and are currently purchasing … (2 comments)
