This will be my first attendance and I must make sure I clear my day.  I've been very busy but I've mar...
Mr. & Mrs. Seller, I can't sell your home without being able to get inside and show it to my buyer.  I have left two voice mails with your listing agent and haven't heard back from her yet.  The MLS instructions tell me that I have to set your appointments through the listing agent, not the offic...
