Hi friends, I thought I would do something a little different than I normally do. I thought I would create a list of all the people I recommend to every single client who is about to purchase a home or plans to purchase a home. In the past 5 years I have gotten the chance to meet and get to know many industry professionals, and the seven people on this list have gone above and beyond not just for me, but for each client I recommend them to, every single time I or they needed them.
Below you will see who they are, what they do, why I recommend them, and how to contact them..
