I have the highest respect for Realtors.  Because I have so many of them in my family, I have spent a good part of my adult life watching them work tirelessly on behalf of home buyers and sellers (and often, myself).  Yes, there commissions can be good, but many times they do a lot of work and do...

Divorce this House was created by Kelly Lise Murray, a Harvard Law School graduate and Wendy Wasalle, a successful home stager to actually change legislation to include Realtors and appraisers early on in the divorce process before mistakes can be made than cannot be undone.  They currently train...
