Did a very nice rehab. Helping the community and the new owners.

Lessons learned? Challenges?

I had never had a Terrazzo floor refinished. I learned that some of the stains are just not coming out and they give the floor character.

Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?

My agent Nicole Rhodes sold the property in one day. Limelight Home staging did the staging. Arnold Novak took the pictures.
