Making a Lifestyle Change


Sometimes called downsizing or moving up, today’s label is more appropriate:


If your  present home is too big, too small or just no longer in your center of activity we can help you determine your best move. Do you need one level living after climbing stairs for twenty years? Do you value the convenience that a high rise urban condo gives? Imagine no yard work, luxury services and locking the door behind you as you go out of town for the winter or a long trip. 

Is a villa an attractive option? Some are attached in one or two unit buildings and some actually stand alone with the maintenance handled for you. Every multi-family development is different with separate rules and services. We know the questions to ask so you know what you’re paying for.

Have you outgrown the starter home you bought just a few years ago? Isn’t it a surprise how much room a kid or two needs? And all the equipment! The garage is bursting with bikes and toys. And wouldn’t a larger bathroom make a wonderful difference? Or even an additional bathroom? Wow. Do you want a better school district for the kids? We can help with all of that and help you move up to the right size and location. Look in the pull down menu for school information and more.

Is it time for the large prestigious home in a fine neighborhood? You’ve worked hard to get here and it’s time to enjoy the good life. We’re Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Luxury Collection Certified. We know high end properties.

It might even be time to get out of town for good. With abundant Berkshire Hathaway offices around the country we can personally connect you with an agent in your destination location and be assured of the same first class service we deliver.

You may be handling an estate for your family. We have worked with several families who needed to sell their parents’ and grandparents’ homes. We know how to diplomatically work with multiple heirs and keep the good memories intact.

You have lots of choices. Let’s meet and discuss your future lifestyle dreams. We may just help them come true. 


Would you like to live on a golf course? There are lots of golf course communities. Some of the courses are public and some are private. When you buy a home in them you are not obligated to join the club and membership in the club does not come with the home. Totally separate and your choice.

Homes in golf communities are not necessarily ON the golf course. It’s important to choose carefully when you are looking for one that is on the course. A golf course view can be wonderful, but where will those errant balls end up? Is the property very close to where tee shots usually land? If so, check how far back or protected the house is. You will have golfers walking near your back yard or dashing in to retrieve that lost ball. Is the house very close to a tee box? Will you be able to hear the conversation early on weekend mornings? Because we are golfers we can help you decide what location suits your lifestyle.  

We know golf. We are both golfers and are or have been members of 3 private clubs in the area. If you are interested in joining a club we can give you some pointers.

We have also played at most of the public courses around and can give an objective opinion of their appeal.

We even have an automatic search running for ourselves that looks for homes on golf course lots because we might want to buy one someday.  We would be happy to include you on that email list.
