Knowing what the buyer wants and convincing the seller to do it can be a challenge.  Time is money.  As the list agent, you only get paid when the home sales.  Your out of pocket expense varies with the type of marketing you do.  But none is free.   As the seller, you only get to move on when the...

While listening to Obama's inaugural speech this morning I was struck once again by his perspective that our country is not going to turn around simply because there is a new President in office.  His focus is, and always has been, teamwork.  We as a nation need to work together to create change....
