Fun Video with Norma and Josh

Josh and I decided to have more fun with our real estate videos in 2016 after hearing a high percentage of sellers and buyers would rather have a root canal than repeat their most recent real estate experience. This video is our first "duet" effort, and although far from perfect, it is unscripted and unrehearsed. It's authentically us!


Along with all the other professional goals of improving our service to our treasured clientele and keeping up to date on real estate trends and changes in the market, we decided it was time to make working with us more fun.  


Selling or buying a home can be a stressful situation, and it's our goal to reduce the stress and make the experience as pleasant as can be given paperwork, inspections, negotiations and loan applications must continue to be a part of the process.  We hope to help our clients find more joy during the educational and selling or buying journey.


I recently heard many people said they would rather gain ten pounds than go through the process of selling or buying a property.  That's not the walk away experience we want for our clients.  We can"t remove all the stress and big decisions from the real estate experience but we can add a dash of humor to the mix.


Here's to more joy in all your future real estate experiences.
