I will be posting information intended to be helpful for home buyers, sellers, and investors. I will also post articles intended to be of benefit for other Real Estate Professionals. I will try to avoid articles on religion or politics, unless it has direct bearing on Real Estate matters, but I reserve the right to be thought-provoking, and even philosophical at times. (And even humorous, if I am feeling in the mood)
