 Typically the Real Estate Market begins to COOL DOWN during the Dog Days of Summer as people go on vacation in August. But I expect the Fall will see a huge uptick in Real Estate Activity.                                                          HAVE A GREAT VACATION!                                                                           AND                                      CALL ME WHEN YOU GET BACK IN TOWN  708-309-5334
