Best Residential Real Estate Brokerage 

1. PCS Partners – Military Real Estate

The team at PCS Partners – Military Real Estate specializes in serving those who serve their country in the United States military. 

They use their experience and knowledge of the local residential real estate market, as well as the unique needs of military members, to help their clients navigate every transaction from start to finish.

Josh Noyes, owner of the brokerage, said PCS Partners focuses primarily on active-duty military members and veterans, and to his knowledge, is the only local firm with such a specialty. 

“So that’s what separates us from most,” Noyes said. “And we have a very good understanding of the [Veteran Affairs] loan, which is what most service members use to purchase homes, and a good understanding of the stresses that they go through when moving every three to four years, so we totally understand that military lifestyle.”
