    Items to Remember

    Most of our properties are not furnished with appliances with the exception of a stove. Please be sure to verify appliances while viewing the property.

    Due to recent advertisement scams which have been brought to our attention, Boardwalk RPM honors market prices listed on MLS and the website. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
