Real Estate Agent - J.Philip Real Estate
In my 14 years of being a Realtor I have seen many agents come and go. I have seen many have their moments of success, but only very few can sub-stain a level of success. Of the agents I know that have acomplished this task all have in common a positive attitude and the willingness to share.   Bu...
I am very frustrated. I have had at least 3 listings in the past year that should have been allowed to be listed as 2 property types. But MLS says NO. For example, I have a 3 family that is Zoned commercial. The best use is commercial however it is currently being used as a multi-family. Shouldnt...

If you take any group of humans, monks, doctors, engineers, teachers etc.....you will have a small percent...
I actually mean Ice not snow but snow went better with the title. So... Yesterday I had to accompany an agent to show one of my listings. This is the day after a huge ice storm. She gets out of her car with Stilettos on. My Client drives by and sees this calls me on my cell telling me to refuse t...
