Technology - Our Friend - and sometimes, not so much.    I recall my earliest experiences with potential sellers - and buyers - coming to me, armed with Internet Proven Facts - IPF's, as I like to call them, Zestimate in hand, ready to take on the market.   And I, like each of my real estate pro ...
