At Liz Moore & Associates, we understand how to leverage technology to deliver an extraordinary real estate experience to our clients. We've made a significant investment in groundbreaking Matterport technology, so that prospective homebuyers can have an immersive online experience, giving them a true sense of the feeling of our listings before they ever visit in person.

What are the benefits to Buyers?

Navigate a property like a video game with Inside View and see how each room fits together using Dollhouse View. Understand layout in a glance with the top down Floorplan View.

What are the benefits to Sellers?

Being able to offer a compelling online experience to buyers who are outside the market enables us to create immediate, lasting emotional connections to our listings because they can experience it as though they were really there. The 3D images are easy to share, so anyone with a computer or mobile device can have the open house experience from anywhere.

Liz Moore & Associates Collecting Games for Toys for Tots this Holiday Season

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 10:28 AM

BoardGameDrive_eCardHelp us make Christmas full of fun and games! We are collecting new and unwrapped board games for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation! When you are out doing that holiday shopping, pick up a game and bring it by one of our offices. 

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.

Toys for Tots' stated goal is to "deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens."
