10 questions I asked when choosing an Agent Recently, my wife got the bug to move just because her brother was (I quickly killed that bug – we are NOT moving). I did however have a chance to interview 4 Real Estate agents. I quickly learned that they are not all created equal.
Real estate prospecting fundamentals An issue with social media is that it doesn’t require social skills — maybe just some typing skills — to get started. You don’t have to smile, laugh or get teary-eyed, unless you want to leverage the appearance of a feeling.
