In 2008, Betty’s husband,Ken, joined her so they could apply the team approach they had found so successful in their business together.They are convinced that two are better than one when it comes to keeping you abreast of the changing real estate market, new laws on disclosure, agency and fair housing. By listening carefully to your needs and goals and then working hard to help you achieve them, theTHOMAS TEAM goes beyond the sale/purchase to cover the multitude of details required prior to arriving at the closing table.
