INFORMATION FOR REALTORS
Thank you for assisting our neighbors in the sale and purchase of homes and lots in our community. On this page, you will find the answers to many of the questions you and your clients will have in preparation for a successful closing.
POA BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND COMMITTEES
Western Shores is a self-managed community, with volunteer committees performing most of the same services as a property management company - at a much lower cost. The five directors on our board are supported by more than seven committees.
