  • My wife and I dropped in midday on a Wednesday. Jaimie welcomed us and took us on an informative tour, not only of the house, but of the neighborhood as well. Her knowledge was incredible. She had a passion and pride for the neighborhood and gave terrific restaurant recommendations. We ended our tour with a hug.
