martinsburg west virginia wv hallmark realty real estate martinsburg: Are land sales coming back? - 01/27/10 08:31 AM
Are land sales coming back? My partner Andrew Johnson and I have noticed an up tick in land sales about 40 to 50 percent of what we do is land and we've noticed that land sales have been getting some phone calls and e-mails.

It feels to me at least here in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia it (1 comments)

Are you losing money by not texting? That's the question I pose to a lot of agents in my area who don't text message. I can tell you with the new technology coming out with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace, this is a game changer for Realtors.
