That’s what I put on my spreadsheet." This advice was pivotal, focusing their search on communities before homes. Mary's approach helped them prioritize their desires, like having a golf course and a pool, both of which Royal Highlands offered abundantly.
Robin praised Mary's role in their decision-making process, "Every box was checked," she said, reflecting on how the community met all their criteria.
