“When we started looking for a new home we had never sold a home in Texas. Having moved from out of state, there were a lot of different processes and laws. We relied heavily on Outlaw Realty and Grant Whittenberger to help us get through all of the red tape. We did not have a realtor and we were referred by a new home builder to Outlaw, and it worked out perfectly.” - Cheryl M.
