Plus, I always feel like the tall sellers are looking down on me. I always wonder if they think they might b...

Finally, I explained to her that I did not have the answer and the seller was the bank and there is no way to find out the info she needed. You wo...
I am sorry but I have a problem with not reporting to the public the truth and spinning the numbers to make things look good. My local association and the NAR are reporting things to the public that I do not agree with, and I need to stand up. They are saying the median price is similar to before...
