Jeff Dowler, CRS - There is a lot to know about selling real estate in CA and with so many different areas, I'd be lost if I were a consumer/buyer without you! I also know based upon your education, experience, and knowledge you would be the best person to help anyone moving to the area who is in need of housing. 

This blog post is just another example of how your expertise shines, just like sunny California!

There seems to be a large gap between the number of those who want to buy homes and those who want to sell. It is always good to know the agent you are going to use understands the market, as this post shows you do, so your buyers and sellers can be confident in the advice given.
