After losing our home to a short sale we weren’t sure how realistic it was to purchase another home. Bill and Joanne pointed out things we never would have seen by ourselves and helped us avoid potential pitfalls.”

Joanne and Bill are a prime example of what great communication is all about. It was an honor and privilege to have a real estate team like this backing me up every step of the way. I recommend them 8 days per week!
