About Us

Quality Over Quantity

 The number of listings you look at does not guarantee results


You’re pressed for time. Realtors are pressed for time. Don’t let that limit your ability to pursue the dream of second home life.  

We use a unique approach, guiding buyers along a journey to help you achieve your goal, whether it’s to own a vacation home, buy a retirement home away from winter weather, or purchase an income property. There is a lot to know about buying a second home. And there are so many options. Second Home life helps match the qualities you want with communities that will meet your expectations. Then we connect you with a top local realtor to help you find the ideal home for your family.

Buying a Vacation Home?

Rethink the process


We know that buying a home can be a truly nerve wracking experience. Whether you’re looking for a vacation home, are snowbirds looking to escape winter because of an empty nest, or you are seeking to build wealth and passive income through an income property, we can help you find the perfect home. 

Don’t think about the listings that are available. Think about the way you live. Think about what you can afford. Understand what’s involved in owning a second home. Picture your ideal lifestyle. It looks and feels a certain way. You won’t find that in a bunch of listings.

Now let’s work together to match your second home life with a location that fits you. It doesn’t have to be nerve wracking – it should be a rewarding and pleasant experience.  And it shouldn’t be something you just dream about – work with us and make it happen.

Once you work with us to narrow down the best options for where you will be happy with a second home, then ask for information on property listings and competitive properties that have recently sold to be delivered to you by a qualified realtor who understands the second home life you’re trying to create. The National Realtors Association’s 2015 Home Buyers Profile reports that having a realtor help them find the right home is the single most important factor for home buyers. A Second Home Life specialized and experienced buyers’ agent will help you get the best deal on the right home for you.
