The Most Important Things To Know When Choosing Your Realtor I was speaking to a home buyer the other day and was trying to let her know all of the services that I provide to her as a Buyer’s Agent.  She stated that she has had numerous agents contact her through the internet and she was trying to figure out how to choose the best Agent to help her.  I told her that I would recommend asking each agent the questions below. ·         Do you work in Real Estate Full time?  I personally think that if someone is helping a client make one of the biggest financial decisions of their life that it should not be handled by someone who treats real estate as a hobby.  If you do choose to use someone who is not working real estate full time I would recommend asking them why they only do it part time...

  Can you believe it! This is an awesome opportunity for Fuquay Varina and for singles in the area!  Please share this with all your single friends!   I think that Fuquay Varina is a great setting for this event; after all, our town's namesake is derived from a love story! "During the Civil War, girls wrote to soldiers to support them - even ones they didn't know. Virginia Avery used the pen name "Varina" to write to a young gentleman from Fuquay, J.D. Ballentine. When he returned home from the war, he found Varina and married her. She was the love of his life and he named several businesses after her. The area became known as Varina." Later in 1964 the town officially became Fuquay-Varina.       Visit www.fuquay-varina.org/lovetown for a Love Town USA application. Participants must be ...
