Polly Wanna… CARROT?

For years, I have listened to agents complain about the unresponsiveness of their potential clients or online leads.

What Do You Know About Real Estate Investing?

Mindset Matters… It All Begins With a Positive Thought

If you sell real estate and you work with a broad range of clients, it is inevitable that someone at some point will either dump you or choose not to work with you. Or perhaps they will suck the life out of you only to have you find out later that after all your hard […]
