“I recently decided to sell two beautiful building sites I owned east of Lake Dr. I engaged the Falk Ruvin Team to find the right buyers. They created compelling marketing pieces and found an ideal buyer for each property. I would recommend Katie & Rick for anyone looking to sell in the north shore.”
– Scott Yauck, Fox Point
