Best of the Week

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Traditionally, this weekend we honor military personnel who have lost their lives in service to our country. For many people memorial day marks the unofficial start to summer, but we urge you to also remember those we have lost and celebrate their sacrifice. We have so much to be grateful for, including having a beautiful place to call home.

Enjoy our picks this week. These homes are unique, beautiful and ready to be cherished by new owners.

As always enjoy our picks and have a wonderful weekend.


P.S. If you have any friends or family that would enjoy this weekly update, please let us know and we would be glad to add them to our mailing list.
