Old Church Historic Restoration
 

Historic

 

A home with history is such a beautiful thing. Whether you want a fixer to
make your own or a beautifully renovated space, I can help you to navigate the
complex process of purchasing a historic home. 

Historic homes tend to pull at our heartstrings. Nostalgia is strong and it’s important
to keep practical considerations in mind and to know what to look for in these homes
to avoid potential pitfalls. I’d suggest watching the classic Tom Hanks’ film
"The Money Pit"
 for a humorous perspective on historic homes before beginning! 

Together we can take a look at the home styles you love, your interests and your
budget to find the right home. Projected restoration and renovation costs can be
difficult but looking into them before making a purchase is key. I want you to be just
as happy with your historic home a year after you close as you are the day you first
get your front door keys!
