We sometimes get questions about doing radon tests. Like any kind of contingency, it’s possible to have a radon contingency in the contract.

This will not affect you at all - your payment and all the terms stay the same. The long (in-depth) an...
When we list your home for sale, we’ll do “Just Listed” postcards, put your home on the MLS & with 20 photos, and hold open houses, just like a traditional Realtor would. But there’s an additional component to our marketing - the online piece - which is just as (or even more) powerful...
