38 Years of Combined Experience Representing Buyers and SellersMemorial Day is the unoffi cial 
start of the Summer Real 
Estate Market. This is a great 
time to sell your house!
We experienced Renewed 
Buyer Con dence in our 
Spring 2023 Real Estate Mar-
ket fueled by low inventory, 
high demand for properties 
and stabilizing interest rates. 
 e scarcity of properties 
for sale has created a very 
competitive environment 
where Buyers are willing to 
pay top dollar to secure their 
dream home. 
Call us, we would love to 
meet with you to discuss how 
we can help you achieve your 
2023 Real Estate Goals.
Now is the Time for
