Sometimes I can't even beleive that agents are this stupid.  Even more disturbing is that the seller isn't up in arms over the pictures of their home.  I have seen agents who are trying to take "professional" pictures with a pocket digital camera.  It just can't be done.When I list a Murfreesboro...
