So after years of looking, God has blessed Paco and I with a new home, he has provided us with more than we had wished for... Thanks to Martha Kophamer, Ken Kophamer, and Kophamer & Blean Realty for their awesome diligence, time and patience in this journey.

We were first time home buyers, and our agent guided us through the entire process from looking at houses to writing up the offer and all the important details. And we didn’t give her an easy task.  We wanted land, character, and a barn for horses.  She showed us a variety of homes and her sense of humor kept us going despite discouraging moments.  She helped us find the perfect property.
