I did a national TV show with HOME Team they were looking for a house to buy we found a great place for the show In fact, I just did a market report on Rivers Bend Condo that was where it was. I asked them if they found someone to give it to they had not yet. At the time my son's friend was in remission from cancer and looking to buy a house. They spoke with his family and chose him for the show. Every now and then the show is aired.
I wonder if you know me better than you did before . Have a happy day and smile as it takes more muscles to smile than it does to frown.
