The Open House

It’s an exciting time of year for real estate – as Spring begins – Monday!

And when it does, the for sale signs will be popping up like tulips on front yards all across America….the busiest market of the year – and here it comes.

It’s also, of course, the Spring Market 2017….an era in which digital, online communication is reshaping the real estate industry….from house hunting online, to emailing contracts, to applying for a mortgage on the internet so much has changed.

About October 15th

Back again! With our special ‘Tax Time!” All about you, your home and – all the deductions you can take when you file your income taxes this April.
