About our city offices

Our company is national, but many parts of what we do are local: we’re in the business of buying and selling homes.  Our customers are also local: they look for a new home in a particular neighborhood or school district, and they sell in the same way.  Our local offices are responsible for understanding and serving the local market and all of the homes we buy and sell there.
