MikeW"When I started making my house-buying intentions known, a trusted friend at work recommended her REALTOR®, Bill Evans. Bill quickly zeroed in on the type of property that I desired. Soon, we found exactly what was right for me. Shortly afterwards, I?m in my first home as a homeowner. I?ve heard many stories about the complexity and pitfalls of house-purchasing. My experience with Bill was exactly the opposite. It was a fast, pleasant and surprisingly easy process. Bill was a fantastic guide!"
