“Dogs are a huge part of people's lives and families; they bring emotional support and so much love into our hearts and homes!” shares REALTOR® Regina Madiera-Gorden.

“Our team loves promoting local doggie daycares, parks, groomers, walkers and more. We live in a K-9 friendly culture with numerous resources in our area for dog-friendly people! We represent and help clients that have specific wants and needs for their pets in which we are able to accommodate when buying or selling,” she adds.
