The PVE Advantage
"I've been selling real estate for 11 years and have had the opportunity to see the markets change. Ten years ago everyone wanted lake property, but couldn't find what they were looking for. Most of the time they settled for something they weren't exactly looking for. Now PVE comes along and ten years ago this is what everyone wanted - an estate, lakefront development. In my experience this is where the real estate investment lies. Ten years from now there is going to be a lot of people wishing they had bought when they had the opportunity."
