Selling Homes Changing Lives

Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI - You touched on a topic often thought of in buyer's minds. If I were a buyer and was looking in Scottsdale if you happened to be driving me around looking for homes and drove by the Scottsdale Police and Fire HQ I would feel like I just found home! 

Your Police and Fire HQ would certainly reassure me that I was in the right place and I would hang on to you for Buyer Representation!
