Did you know that Berkeley Place was initially part of the 1850 Mexican Government's Peters Colony? Or, that Como once included a beautiful recreation resort with pavilion, casino and amusement rides? Or how about the history of Cooke's Meadow in which General Ed.

They followed a lone squaw who had been washing clothes in Village Creek to her camp and routed the Indians.

Like finding the right house, selecting a REALTOR® you can trust and comfortably work with is paramount.
