If you need a real estate agent, please use Jesse Parsh from The Advantage in Real Estate (a local company! holla!).
He is: Honest. Fair. Everywhere.
Seriously, he's a go-getter who works hard to get people the house they want (or sell the house they've got). Plus, he's my boyfriend. He puts food on the table. But I'm not just advertising him for those reasons--I'm really proud of how well he's done. He works for people in any price range and is totally honest--not all slimy and schmucky like those other agents! ;) He's blue collar to the core!
Anyways, just have to get the word out!
