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.

Congratulations to Tim on the rental of his new home!
Congratulations to Alex on the purchase of his new home!
Thank you for allowing WSP to assist you with your most valuable investment.
