After several years of working for a big name - big fee real estate brokerage, I decided to start my own brokerage to better serve my clients.   I knew there was a way to still provide the key services one expects from a professional Realtor, but at a cost that was fair & reasonable.  What's more, I wanted my clients to have access to the unparalleled expertise of appraisers to help them determine accurate market valuations when buying, or selling real estate. 


As licensed appraisers & Realtors, The Listing Agency achieves these goals by bringing you the latest real estate marketing services, streamlined processes, and unrivaled expertise at a fraction of the cost.
