In October and November of last year (2013) Richard Matheny spent a considerable amount of time talking with my wife, my realtor, and me regarding a home we wanted to purchase. Mr. Matheny's research, advice, and expertise were critical in our ability to make an informed decision and to know exactly what we were getting into. Full review ›
