There are many avenues for finding your property! We will work with you to tailor your search and send you customized email results. Look at listings on our web site (or your own favorite site). Attend open houses or walk-bys; if you can’t make an open house, we’ ll take you through on your schedule. Additionally, we can consult our proprietary database to get the answers to any questions you have.
We encourage you to visit open houses. To avoid representation confusion tell on-site agent that Andy Peers is your agent. We are available by appointment to tour properties; we will do our best to accommodate you with 24 hours’ notice. We will provide you with copies of the listings for your reference.
