Happy Clients

Chris Perkins enjoyed every part of the process when selling 1575 Henry Street in the South End of Halifax.  Getting to know the owners was a real pleasure, as was learning about all of the work they put into the home over the years.  It was the perfect blend of old-world character combined with the modern conveniences we demand today.
