Did you know Georgetown is one of the fastest growing cities in America? It's no surprise, really. We have everything a big city has, plus that small town charm. We have history, art, theater, excellent dining, a university, while folks still swim in the river and lounge at Blue Hole. Living here means having everything right near by, or not having to go far to find. You can dress up, or down. You'll always fit in. And Georgetown really loves it's festivals and holidays! You never have to wait long for something fun and unique to do! So whether you are looking for that perfect retirement bungalow, or your very own castle, I am here to help you find that perfect home in this glorious hometown!
Hugs, Jan XXOX
