This lead me to thinking about properties that have been on the market for an extended period of time.  In today's market, some agents un-list and re-list properties over...
I'm happy to report that I won the lottery! No, I didn't come into any money- but it many ways, this is just as good. Earlier this month, our company announced that we were asked to participate in an Extreme Makeover Home Edition project in our area. There would be a residence in MD and a communi...
