About Us

We started this business as a real estate sales company. We still offer award-winning representation for buyers and sellers as you can see. It wasn't until we started managing properties shortly thereafter that we found a valuable niche in property management as a bonus to our home selling clients. Their cases have been diverse and the reasons for selling their homes all across the board. In some instances, we consulted with home sellers and open their eyes to the opportunity of renting a property versus selling their home out right.
