Does this sound like you?...A senior couple contemplates a move

Should we stay or go from our long time homes? We know what we know and we fear uncertainty. Take some time and assess what truly makes you happy.  None of us want to lose our independence and ability to sculpt our future.

Riding the Real Estate Train…Where and When to Get off…

Riding the Real Estate Train…Where and When to Get off…

In this article I break down my knowledge of the housing market and advice for baby boomers on selling their homes.
