Jerry and Tammy believe that your choice of realtor is crucial when entering into a property purchase or sale. Your agent is given trust and responsibility to manage what will be a very impactful experience, both personally and financially. Your transaction must be executed with the highest level of professional service, handled with sensitivity and discretion, and will involve the management of many moving parts:
Marketing, reviewing documents, market research, advising and counseling, negotiation, associated services such as inspections and appraisals, a fiduciary responsibility to do what is best for you, and the list goes on…

"Tammy and Jerry are simply the best! Not only are they extremely knowledgeable and experienced, they're just great people to work with. And you get two of them! They showed us a cabin on a remote island, and took us there on their own speed boat. They spent a lot of time with us, exploring not only the cabin but the island as well. As you can imagine they were many considerations and surprises in buying such a property. They were so helpful in putting together an offer that protected our interests. While we secured the position of first accepted offer with their help, we ended up backing out. Thanks to them, we were able to do so without issue. Again, excellent agents and wonderful people. I highly recommend them!"by Anne Miller
"Tammy and Jerry are a great team. They worked with me to buy an unusual property with few comps and plenty of issues. It was anything but the standard purchase. I saw plenty of potential in the property, but I was unsure of how to assess the price to value ratio. They did a fantastic job at negotiating with the seller, answering my questions, giving me guidance and providing boots on the ground support with inspections, measurements and field reports as I ground through the process. They even helped by checking on things while I was out of town to make sure a deep freeze caused no harm. In the end, I made the purchase with full confidence!"by Billy Gogesch
