Meet the RIC Team
Shep Saltzman – Principal Broker- 23 years combined experience as a real estate and mortgage broker. My specialty is offering a very high level of service and expertise. I maintain a small company by choice. My clients are not handled by assistants. My main partner is my wife, Barbara Balsamo. When I handle the listing and purchase of real estate simultaneously, I offer substantial discounts. As a mortgage broker, I can simplify the process of financing and make sure you get the best rates, terms and service. My referral network of appraisers, title companies, banks, inspectors, handymen and contractors facilitates every transaction. Try working with an experienced professional, who makes a clear commitment to his clients, and see the difference.
Each home I photograph I envision how light interacts with the form. Light will show the craft of the builder; how will color shape emotion and how furniture plays with movement. Each of these form an interplay that creates an essence of an image for the viewer to be swept away by the possibilities. http://www.edgesoflight.com
