Creating Your Home Wishlist

Even before you begin to search for a home, it’s important to put together your WISHLIST! Take some time to reflect and consider what it is you’re really looking for in your next home. The options are endless and putting a pen to paper to create a wishlist will help you to zero in the right home quickly. This list will help me as I search for you. I’ll need to know as much as possible about the features and amenities you desire. To help me better serve you, have a look at the bullet points below and send me your wishlist so that I can get to work for you right away!
