Jason France and Bridget Powers have been active in their local community in the Sierra Nevada Foothills for more than 30 years. As friends, they often talked about their aspirations to further benefit their town and surrounding communities.
As a successful real estate investor for 33 years, Bridget knows how difficult it is for some sellers to sell a house quickly enough.
Sometimes sellers just want to settle in to a new residence without the hassle of finding a buyer, going through home inspections or doing all the fix-it projects that have been pending… and that’s where Jason and Bridget can help!
