we are casa

CASA is a unique real estate team dedicated to making a tangible impact on people's lives through real estate. Our agents are committed to a superior level of customer service and communication, partnering with our clients to create a personalized plan designed to achieve their needs, desires and expectations.

We believe that there is an opportunity to give back and positively impact those less fortunate with every real estate transaction. Our mission is to be bigger than real estate and create opportunities for those in need of them.

For the first time, we are giving you as the consumer the option to not only have all of your individual real estate needs met, but to also give back and forever change a family’s life as part of your transaction. It is through our client’s decision to work with CASA that we are able to donate and build new homes for families in need.

At CASA, we’re committed to making our 3 core values come alive...


We offer a personalized, "white glove" experience

Realizing that every client is unique, we focus on understanding each client’s needs, wants and desires before designing a tailored plan to achieve their real estate goals. Our personalized approach, combined with our dedication to excellent customer service and industry experience, allows us to exceed our clients’ expectations.


We are bigger than Real Estate

Giving is the essence of what we do. For every home bought or sold with CASA, we will donate a home to a family in need out of the commissions. Your home builds another. It’s that simple. Every transaction gives us the ability to make a real impact on a family’s life, and we get to share that experience with our clients.


We don't consider work, "work"

Seeing the impact on families who have received a new home has changed the way we view our “work.” Our core mission is to give back, and through creating an enjoyable, productive work atmosphere that prioritizes an exceptional customer experience, we are able to make a greater impact for those who need our help.
