Sid and Joe were getting ready to sell their home near Gorgas Park in Roxborough and were looking for a Realtor® to help them through the process. In our first conversation Sid had told me that she had seen my video on the Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve and reached out to me because they wanted to work with someone who knows and cares about the neighborhood and who does things like using video to help promote the neighborhood to the people who are most likely to love living in the area.
