Pat Hallesy's musings about the local real estate market, technology, and how agents can save money with free or low-cost tools.
  You’ve done your research into the competition. You’ve checked out the demographics of the area where you would like to locate your business. Your business plan is ready. You have your banker’s backing. You’re ready to grab a space and sign that lease, right? Wrong!  I would recommend that you ...
Where would you like to locate your business?  There are many factors you may wish to consider.  Are you just starting a business or are you relocating your existing business?  How much traffic will there be near your business? Is your business the destination or a stop along the way to someone’...
