“The Power of Print” will never die.  Just as there’s a special quality in holding a book, flipping its pages and reading it as opposed to a kindle, holding that newspaper in your hand and flipping the pages is a good feeling.

If I were to take a jab at guessing the percentage of real estate agents who actually achieve their goals, I think that figure might be disappointing. Goals require a plan of attack, and many know how they w...
