Get To Know

Donald & Carol James

We believe that home is more than just the space in a house. It is the memories made there, the experiences shared and the reasons we return.

From buying your first home to downsizing and selling a much loved homestead and every move in between, you need professional Realtors to help you navigate the many details and decisions involved. These are decisions filled with emotion, and Donald and Carol will be there for every step of the way to provide empathetic, objective guidance to make good choices. Our goal is to make the process as simple and stress free as possible, no matter your situation. We have a special passion for helping seniors make the most difficult transitions they have faced, but we have experienced it all - helping Mom move from her beloved home, finding the perfect family home for first time buyers, locating the best "empty nest", advising new and experienced investors.

Whatever your dream, our commitment is that we will be there for you through the entire process. Our relationship with each client is our focus. We want to get to know you so we can support your interests and desires.
