      Sold a home in 2011.
      You may have used other realestate companies first, we did... now try the BEST! Jon Underwood exceeded all expectations and we were more than pleased with his services. Jon bent over backwards to get the job done, I would recommend Jon to anyone and would most certainly use him again.
