Cain Realty Group with Keller Williams Realty is proud to announce we have completely moved into the new office suite located in the Keller Williams Southwest Market Center. As our fantastic real estate team grew, we found ourselves needing more physical room for the team. Our wonderful new suite is located upstairs on the second floor of the exact same office building we'd resided in.
This new space was recently reconstructed as part of the Keller Williams market center's multimillion dollar renovation. New walls and doorways were constructed from a section of the building that once was part of the large learning room. Fresh paint and new carpet were installed as well.
