Jamila and her ex-spouse had explored several properties. But while she was sieving through the internet, she was captivated by the Craftsman house built in the 1920s.

So, she instantly Googled it and sent a link to her Realtor. Then she asked if she could see the house. She fell for it online, and when Norman saw it in person, she immediately felt like, “This is my house.”

Norman’s house included high ceilings, oversized windows, three fireplaces, crown and chair molding, and big, open rooms. She also added a new room and updated electrical and plumbing systems.
