Good Job!
We have worked several times with RPA, Jay Young and Michelle Jore and their staff, selling and buying homes, and also property management. Our experiences have always been pleasant and the outcomes proved beneficial to all parties involved. When, in the future, we need the assistance of a real estate company or property management company, we will be certain to call RPA. We would recommend their services to anyone needing efficient, professional help with any real estate transactions and/or management.
