Since our new site has gone live we keep hearing great feedback about our Keyword Search! People love the ability to be specific with their search criteria. We understand that many of our clients have a specific need and are only looking for a certain type of property.  Our keyword search is one way we are making your home/property search an enjoyable and simplified process. If you are looking for a property in only one of two towns, and one that must be a horse property, why would you sift through 36 properties in those towns when you really only have to look at two?

To help simplify your search find “Search By Keyword” under the “Search Listings” pull-down tab.
