Good Morning!

In our line of business, do you think it’s more about who you know than what you know or a combination?

Redfin put out an article summer of 2021 stating that Harrisburg, PA was one of 2 cities that will see an influx of high-end earners looking for low-cost housing compared to other metropolitan areas in the country. Since we are so close to major cities but still have a small-town feel. And we have seen just that here! If you are looking to move to Central PA or invest in Central PA, please check out my listing! DM with any questions you may have. Thanks!
