Featured Testimonial by Evie
I just wanted to take some time to write you a personal thank you for helping me sell my home. My situation was more than complicated. Not too many real estate agents would have taken the time to understand the stress that can bring to somebody like me. You did. The other agents I worked with were not nearly as caring about my situation. You took all of the stress related “to-dos” off my plate and handled them all. I know how much work that took and I will always be grateful for that. I would also like to thank Melissa in your office for her constant availability to me as well. You have a great employee working for you!
You also were able to get more money than I had expected for the sale. You ended up selling my home for more than the other agent wanted to list it for. You went above and beyond for me on several levels. I had been trying to sell my house for almost two years and you managed to get it sold in about six months in the slow season. Having this finally dealt with is huge for me and I am so glad I found you to help me get here.
I wish you all the best with your new business location for Wenzel Properties. You really work hard for your clients and deserve all the success that comes your way. If you ever need a reference, please put me on top of the list!
Congratulations to Patrick & Elizabeth on the purchase of their new home!
Congratulations to Mary on the

What to Keep in Mind When
Searching for Your Ideal Home
When purchasing a home, you can rely on the inspector to answer questions about the condition of the roof, foundation, and plumbing, but there are other important questions the inspector’s report can’t answer because the answers depend on a homebuyer’s preference. Here are some great questions to ask as you search for your future home:
Does the House Layout Work
for Your Lifestyle?
Walk through a potential new home as if you were just starting your day. Does the layout of the house complement your family’s daily activities? Remember, it’s easy to paint walls a fresh color, but it’s not so easy to move them… Read More
