Just to let everyone know, I am no longer with Zook Realty.  I decided to change direction and effective Oct 1, I opened Koppelmann Real Estate.  I have a small office in downtown Monticello.  This gives me the chance to do what I truly love with real estate - work with sellers and buyers.  This change will also allow me to better service my clients.  I am very excited with this new direction and will hopefully update my blog more often as well.
