“Depend on TriCounty Realty for your next house purchase.

We are a full-service firm with access to all MLS properties available in the area. Our real estate professionals provide a wealth of knowledge and education in an ever-changing market.”
“There are bigger real estate firms, but none of them has the local knowledge we have. Bob Smith has been selling homes in the TriCounty area for 20 years, and he knows every neighborhood as if he lived there himself. Trudy Williams has sold more homes in the TriCounty area than any other realtor. Our newer agents spend 30% of their time getting to know neighborhoods and talking to the people who live there. Our unique ‘know your neighborhood’ approach will help us find the right house for you to buy. And, if you’re the seller, our neighborhood knowledge will help you sell your house faster. After all, buyers buy neighborhoods, not just the houses in them.”
