“I just want to let you and Valerie know how much I appreciated all you and Kathy did for me regarding the sale and purchase of my homes. Kathy found the absolutely perfect home for me in Stone Creek. She was so willing to show me home after home till we found this one….and you were wonderful helping me with the Home Warranty. I will certainly recommend Showcase Properties to my friends.“
