The additional space in the MEDC  office has been leased!

Please help us welcome Kristine Heiman to our 200 Webster Street office.
" I am so excited to be here, Kristine said as she thanked Dr. Neil Schlupp for such wonderful office space." I am so excited to have this opportunity.

Although Best Homes Fox Valley is a newly created office, Kristine has been a licensed real estate agent since 1981. She previously worked in Oswego and has lived in the area for over 30 years. Kristine does primarily focus on the residential market.  She works hard to help sellers get the best prices and buyers to find the best home to fit their needs.

Please take a few minutes to stop by, and say hello!

A Parents Prayer:

In August, I introduced "Rachel's Hope" and helped share the story of this wonderful Montgomery Family who continues to give back to the community and share their story. The event was a huge success and the family just wanted to say Thanks to everyone who helped make it so special.

  Thanks so much to all the wonderful people who continue to share and care....
Montgomery & Oswego, you make us so proud!

In case you missed it, I will keep the link for you to visit her website and see the pictures from the event.
