You know, since I have been a realtor, we have gone from 1 page for a  listing and 1 page for a offer to purchase...to about total pages of around 15 pages.  Don't that seem like a waste of trees. Our state of NC has just revised the forms and we are having a webinar on that today.Would love to g...

 I just read a post from another Active Rainer regarding folks that just talk too much and waste your time when you are busier than a "one armed Paper Hanger". WE have a few agents in our workplace that just like to talk and when you see them coming , you want to cringe because you have not compe...
