I met Linda Sanders at an open house and was not interested in the house she was showing but she took the time to ask me what I was looking for and said she had some ideas and would contact me when houses that met my criteria became available which she did and as a result of her and Monte's efforts, I found my dream home. Monte and Linda make a great team. Linda likes looking for and showing properties while Monte specializes in all of the business aspects and he really knows his stuff!

Monte Sanders is the best! He was clear and concise throughout our transaction. We appreciated Monte's honest consultation as we walked through the process. His attention to detail and his availability made us feel as though we were his only clients! We will recommend Monte to all of our friends and family!!!
