Luckily I have wi-fi, and can get online from the garage. If given a choice, that is where I am. Between MLS searches, arranging marketing, and pre-viewing homes, I will try to get in a little welder time, or at least clean some of the tools from the last wrenching session.

Image via Wikipedia We all love limos, right?  When we see one, we wonder who might be in the back... is it a couple that just got married?  Maybe it is a prom couple.  Could it be a celebrity?  It might be a "titan of industry".  There are loads of possibilities... For a long time, the American...

Wandering around in the stacks of AR... and any other site with a lot of real estate agents, one often runs across posts wondering just HOW consumers can view us as interchangeable cogs... all the same.  But let's think about this for a couple minutes.  We all call ourselves REALTORS(R)...
