I'm a pretty even keeled guy.  The Marine Corp taught me discipline....balance.  Today, being a father of two boys ages 10 and 14, I can honestly say that it takes a lot to get me angry.  I'm usually unaffected by ignorance. But I can't seem to shake this one. It gets to me when I walk into a FS...

I explain this to sellers as soon as I take a listing. You never know where the buyer for your home is going to come from.  So please DO NOT turn down any showing requests. I love when sellers tell me how bad they need to sell and then never show their home! "I really need to sell my house but.....

Who wants to see clutter? Among other things, like toilet seat up, blurry pictures, furniture, dishes on the counter, etc?  Why do folks even take pictures like this?  To me it says; 1- Agent really doesn't care about giving best service to their client. 2- Agent too busy or too lazy to make unit...
