I recently received a catalog in the mail advertising postcards, new home journals, business cards and other items designed for real estate agents.  I skimmed through it and noticed a new program that provides social media services.

A broker from a neighboring state, not familiar with the MONTEBELLO condominium community called me to ask if MONTEBELLO was handicap-accessible.

Well, the customer - I mean, Client - IS always right, right?  At least that is what I have always heard. I recently received a phone call from a Seller, who was a tad put out because I had not called her this week. What? She did acknowledge I sent her an updated CMA, an updated list of similar l...
