On February 26th we held a Premier Open House on our new listing at 9771 Daron Drive. We sent an oversize postcard to all Villa Park residents, and had more than 60 people visit. David Dravitz from Everbank joined us to answer any questions about loans and lending, and Sofia, our youngest Giacobbi Group member baked cookies. We all chatted with neighbors and prospective buyers. We had three showings as a result of our Open House. This weekend, 9861 Crestview Circle will be help open on Sunday February 16, from 1-4 PM. Come by and enjoy some freshly baked cookies!
