Our Team

We have bought a number of properties through the years and I have never before truly thought the agent helping us was exceptional, but that is the only word that comes to mind for are experience with David Stone & his associates. He negotiated a great deal for us and after closing continued to assist us while we were back at our primary home ... His associate Terri Rasmussen, was also great. We spoke many times during our transactions and she was always knowledgable, polite & professional. A great team! -vtnygard
