Do you have a personal motto or philosophy for doing business? "Growing up, I always heard the adage 'Home is where the heart is.' I realize that a home is not only your most significant investment, but also it is the space that encompasses our lives . Where we enjoy quality time with our loved ones, where we raise children, where we entertain our friends and family, and where we relax at the end of a long work day.
"Our home embodies our lives."
