Real Estate Agent - Exit Realty Optimum
Hello fellow AR'ers!

In this time of uncertainty, let's choose to be proactive and optimistic.....let's believe in ourselves and regard obstacles as opportunities!  With good health all things are possible! May the new year be everything we wish it to be.....Happy 2009!
I met a potential buyer client when sitting an open house recently; being new to the business, I was excited with the possibilities. She stayed to chat for quite a while and I thought this could be the real deal! She readily gave me her contact info and a couple of days later I followed up with h...
Hi all......with so much knowledge and experience on this site, I surely don't intend to re-invent the wheel. But maybe you'll find a suggestion or two that you can make your own! And of course comments are welcome! [I apologize in advance that the font is too big!]
