Searching for a “Goldilocks” Home?

You know the fairy tale, "Goldilocks and the three Bears."  Goldilocks is looking for the perfect circumstances--the porridge being just the right temperature, the chair being just the right size, and the bed being just the right softness.  However, she doesn't own these items, the three bears do.  My job as a Realtor is [...]
