Many sellers are experiencing the stress of needing to move but owing more than they can sell for. I myself have been on several listing appointments where the seller has been reduced to tear...
Well it has been awhile since my last post. I have been busy opening my own office and boy what a job it has been. Everything is now about 85% ready and although we are open and operating, the plan is for the official grand opening to be the first of November. Many of the agents with my prior bro...
