Real Estate Agent - RE eBroker
Hi everyone! Just a heads up that I have switched from the franchise market of real estate to the high end boutique scene.

Land Tips - Coverage is gold in Lake Tahoe. When buying land it is important to realise that the actual size of the parcel from  the TRPA is only an estimate.

Can an agent offer an xxx amount to a seller to buy his property without disclosing all the value of the property? I had a fellow agent ask me this question.
