Fantastic Experience I don't know where to begin. So much to say about my fantastic experience with SRMF, specifically Scott Shaheen, Scott Ruth, and Brinkley. I sold a home through them and was so satisfied and impressed with the skills and compassion they showed me, I returned for the purchase of my current home. Couldn't get back to them fast enough. The knowledge of real estate combined with the plan of action (specific to me) along with a strong work ethic - they got the job done. Well done!! They care and it shows. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Scott Ruth, Scott Shaheen, and Brinkley Taliferro. They catered to my every need (and I'm needy)! Does not get any better than this company. They raise the bar! Thank you. I will always return to SRMF for all my real estate needs! - Leigh O.
