Want to Know What Your Home is Worth?

Featured Testimonial

            by Jeremy & Amy

We were first time home buyers. So, we pretty much knew nothing about buying a home.Lisa was an invaluable resource. As a homebuilder herself, she helped us feel smarter and more comfortable about the whole process. A process that can be pretty intimidating. Even frustrating at times.

It took us over a year to find the right house. But Lisa was always positive and optimistic, never wanting us to settle for a place that didn’t feel 100% like home. That’s the sort of person you want with you when you’re spending every weekend looking at countless houses, until you find the right one.
