I can send you my list of over 170 area references.


A number of those folks have repeated the buying and selling process with me; eighteen families have each done two transactions, five families have each done three transactions, three families have each done four transactions, four families have each done five transactions, and one has done eight transactions … so far!

I am especially proud that I have been able to help three generations from two different families.

It's gratifying that 9 former Realtors or their families asked me to help buy or sell their homes.

The following are a number of notes and cards clients were kind enough to sent me over the years:
