This is a panic inducing situation for many. Information on school systems in the area is one of the most often r...
Happily, I announce that I have completed the course work for the SRES, Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation, taught by the National Association of Realtors. This designation shows that I have studied the unique challenges our 50+ year old buyers and sellers encounter when searching for new...
Agents do a remarkable amount of followup on meetings, calls, inspections, contracts and the such. Did you know that as the seller you should too?
