Whether you are newlyweds starting out, a single person, or an established family, buying your first home takes preparation.  Where do you start?

Whether you are thinking of river or ocean front property, I can help you find the right home! There are several reasons to live on the water—waking up each morning to the waves crashing or ripple of the river, enjoying a beautiful sunset over dinner on your own deck, or having water recreational activities steps outside your door.
