This TEAM FORGET website has powerful tools that will put you in control and make buying, selling and then maintaining your home easier to do. Take a tour of our featured listings or do a search for your perfect home on our Search Listings page. Once you find a home you want to look at, you will learn important information such as that home’s features and where it is on our interactive map. There you will also find our Walk Score system for that home. What is Walk Score? Walk Score shows and rates your commuting times and exact distances from schools, grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, entertainment and more in that specific home’s community. Our exclusive system will grade the home based upon commuting times and access to local amenities. We have also added a mortgage calculator which will help you determine if the home you are looking at fits into your financial plan. You will also find a mortgage calculator on our Buying Page. Walk Score also works for the home you live in now! We have everything you need in one place. Give it a try!

“It makes me happy when things work out and people do better in life. You and Theresa are very gifted and kind people. We really appreciate it. We hope to see you soon again.”
