Dealing with Wildfires

Having experienced the wildfires in 2016, we understand the overwhelming challenges that come with such natural disasters. In light of the ongoing wildfires, here are some crucial details to help those currently dealing with wildfires and how a Realtor can provide support during these trying times.
