You may think that a flood could never happen to you. However, you don’t need to live in a flood zone to experience the disaster of a flood firsthand.

I am pleased to announce that I recently sold this beautiful estate home to a lovely family relocating to Boca Raton from South Africa.

5th Avenue Roof InspectionThe first thing most of us do when we consider selling our home is to call an agent, set up a time to meet, get the agent’s advice on how to prepare and make the home its most attractive to potential buyers and then decide what to list the house for.
