Hi, I’m A.J. Horner and welcome to my website!

I’m going to take a wild guess and say you’re here because you’re thinking about either buying or selling some real estate. If you’re like most potential buyers or sellers I know, you could probably use a little expert help in that department. Well, today is our lucky day because we’ve found each other! I’ve built my  business philosophy and real estate career around the concept that “The More You Know” about the strategies and winning concepts involved in a real estate transaction, the smarter the decisions you will be able to make. So my goal is not just to provide you exceptional service and results, it’s also to make sure YOU are knowledgeable and in an extraordinary position to make smart choices.

While it’s true that buying or selling in the today’s real estate market can be a complex, high-stress and time-consuming endeavor, I’m here to help you navigate through it all.

If you’re a 
SELLER you may wonder:

• What improvements should I make to get my home ready to sell?

• What price should I place on my home?

If you’re a 
BUYER you may wonder:

• How can I make sure I don’t overpay?

• Will what I buy be good for resale when I’m ready to sell?


The answer to these questions and many more can be found with my help.
