“We are extremely excited to grow our team with the additions of Wilder and Preston,” said Jay Robinson, owner and founder of the Robinson Team. “Seeing the next generation join our firm is exciting. We’re able to reach out to younger clients who are looking for their first home as well as serving generational clients who’ve been with us as their families have grown. We look forward to continuing to ensure that our clients receive the high level of service they’ve come to expect. “

I am excited to finally join the team as an agent and I look forward to continuing the excellence that our family business has been synonymous with for decades.”
