Blog Buyer A big year!

A big year!

By David Columbus, July 10, 2020

Erica & Justin set out over a year ago with some big plans, get married, and buy a forever mid-century home with a pool.  Done and done!  After a  lot of hard work, a few offers, and lots of patience the perfect fit fell from the sky and just in time for pool season.  CONGRATULATIONS!
