February Happenings

February 2018

I went to the What’s Up Down South Economic Summit last month and my mind was BLOWN. Both entrances into town, exit 2 and exit 13, are going to completely change the landscape of Southern Utah. There are so many big things on the way here in Southern Utah and I’m so excited for the opportunities we all have because of it. Check out what is new down below and if you know anybody looking to buy or sell a home, invest in real estate, or has any questions at all, let me know and I can help them get started. Happy New Year!
