House of Zodiac

By Jamis Minnis, July 8, 2020

If you know me, you’d know that I always ask my clients what their Zodiac signs are. I love it! Not because I’m super woo or anything. It’s more so a quick fun conversation. Some are really into it, others not so much. I see horoscopes all the time and thought I’d take a stab at it. So, without further ado. Here’s what shopping for a homes with each Zodiac sign might like.
