I have known Vince, since we bowled together when we were both in high school. I am a residential homebuilder and when I built my first house, I referred to Vince as my crew. When Vince first got in the real estate business, He helped me sell that first house we built.Recently, he sold my wife’s grandparents home on the family farm in Kawkawlin. When I need a real estate agent, I will always call Vince.

When My husband and I wanted to build a new house, We called my brother, Vince. He helped us with the plans, recommended a builder and sold us the lot we built our house on. We have raised our family in this house and when it is time to sell it, I know my big brother will be there to help us.

When my mother started her second career in real estate, Vince was her trainer and mentor. After my mother retired. when my family needed a real estate agent; Vince was the person she recommended. Vince helped our three daughters and our son to buy their first homes. We wouldn’t think of using any other real estate agent.
