TAMMY GURR Broker
“Heath and I have always enjoyed working together – in business and as a family. We enjoy helping people and feel that we each have different skills that are a compliment to each other, as well as, providing a caring and supportive relationship with our clients. As a teacher, my concern was always for the students and how to best support them. It is a natural progression for me to do the same for our clients. My experience as a teacher provides me with organizational skills and high standards of excellence in all aspects of negotiations. Heath and I provide honest advice and offer service you can always trust. ”
HEATH GURR Sales Representative
“As an appraiser, I was in contact with banks and mortgage companies a great deal of the time as these agencies were my clients. Helping people had always been a part of my career and I missed this while working as an appraiser so I took the next step and became a licensed real estate agent. This is truly the best fit for me as I am now in the business of helping people in the housing industry. Whether it is helping a client find a home, build a home, or sell a home , Tammy and I are there for our clients every step of the way.”
