REBECCA AND MICHAEL STRALEY believe the real estate industry is changing and they seek outreach and territory to share decades of experience and education.  There’s a new expectation in the information age and we would like to open the books, and explain the ins and outs of real estate, so it’s not such a mystery.

What happens at closing?  How much do I need to save?  What about my credit score? and who do I can to fix the shower?  Our home is our biggest investment and hopefully a place that we spend a lot of time, so I think we should talk about it more.

Michael and I have been working the past year with the National Association of REALTORS® providing seminars to REALTORS® but we are ready to open the doors and bring the same great information to the public and our friends and clients.

2017 “THE YEAR OF APPRECIATION” is going to be great!  Not only do we appreciate each other but hopefully we will gain property appreciation at a steady and stable rate.
