When most buyers search for a new house, one of the things they take into consideration is if they could imagine entertaining their friends and family in the home. Whether it’s a formal dinner party in the dining room, a casual get together in the kitchen, or party on the patio, your home is an important part of your social life. With New Years Eve around the corner, we asked our agents for their must-haves for entertaining at home!
