From the desk of JONATHAN BUDWIG

As many of you are aware, inventory is low and we currently have more buyers than we do sellers. If you, or someone you know has been considering making a move, we would love the opportunity to discuss the activity in their specific neighborhood and provide our services to them.

We are currently experiencing a trend that homes in the Valley are receiving multiple offers and many of them are from CASH buyers.

Give us a call today and let us know how we can help!



+ And we can't forget Halloween
