About Us

Why Progressive - PRS agents truly care about helping each person individually by Listening, Serving, Closing


Ever have an agent of salesperson that doesn’t really listen to you? Like the car salesman that only shows you cars costing $20k when you’ve told him you’re only willing to pay $15k? Our home selling professionals will listen to you and question where appropriate to define the property that you are seeking

With the desired property identified, we will complete a search of properties in the area of interest. These properties will be preserved and showing will be arranged as beneficial. Once offers are made and accepted, we will help with the closing, arranging for inspections, meeting with contractors, and walking you through the necessary processes, all with a goal of quality customer service.

We want your listings! Contact an agent today and get a FREE consultation and comparative market analysis.

What our clients say...

Having Mrs. Julie as a real estate agent was the best decision I made as a first time home buyer. My fiancé and I were preparing to get married and buy a new home, but I did not know where to turn. My fiancé and I spoke with Mrs. Julie about what type of home, price and where we would like to live. Mrs. Julie showed us one home, but unfortunately it was already in closing. We made an offer anyway but lost it. Mrs. Julie continued to search.

One day she called me and told me "I found a home perfect for you and you’re soon to be wife." This home was perfect for my wife and me. It exceeded our wish list we had originally given to Mrs. Julie. Mrs. Julie helped us through the house buying process answering any and all questions we had. We are currently living in the home going on three years to date. I have, and will continue, to highly recommend Mrs. Julie to others interested in buying a home.
