Spring Brings an Increase in Buyer Demand but a Decrease in Supply
For the second month in a row, existing-home sales were up; according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), sales rose 1.1 percent in March to 5.6 million—welcome news after the weather-related declines posted in February.

Working with Lisa and Melissa was wonderful from Day 1!
With my wife and I being 1st Time Home Buyers, Lisa guided us through the entire process and educated us without making us feel silly for not knowing how things worked. Even though we had put in an offer on a house we ended up walking away from, she fought for us the whole time and never once pushed us into a situation where we felt uncomfortable. Lisa was constantly supportive throughout our search and we eventually found our home! Now that the search was over, she guided us through the inspections and all the other hoops we had to jump through! Lisa was there with us at every point of the process and did so happily. Lisa even helped us in recommending our inspector, lender and attorney. With her broad network base, she has many recommendations and gladly connected us with the RIGHT people. She was so genuine throughout our entire experience with her! We are truly grateful to Lisa and her team for the wonderful (and dare I say easy!?) experience we had with Wenzel Select Properties. Lisa is a great source of knowledge and we would gladly recommend her and the team!

1. Aerate. When the soil under a lawn becomes too compacted, water, air, and nutrients have a hard time reaching grass roots. Lawn aerators correct this problem by pulling small plugs of soil about 1/2 inch in diameter and 2– 3 inches deep out of the ground. You can… Read More
