Nine months before I actually moved, I met Gary and Melynda Wolter and my life has never been the same since. People don't just come into your life by accident; as I've always believed that God puts us into the paths of other's in order for us to grow and grow we did! In Texas, I had two unfortunate experiences with Realtors. To put it mildly, they were awful. These people just put a sign (1 comments)

cedar rapids real estate: Cedar Rapids Real Estate - 08/21/06 12:12 PM
Here in the lovely city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we as Realtors are positioned to enjoy a nice year in terms of the upswing in the real estate market. Listings are up, sales are up, and it looks like this will continue into the fall and even early winter months.
