Why would anyone write a book for residential real estate professionals during what housing experts are calling "one of the worst real estate markets in a decade"?

Setting Work and Life Boundaries - 03/05/08 10:10 AM
Does your job or business demand that you be accessible 24/7? In an era of ubiquitous cell phones, pagers, Blackberrys and WiFi internet access, it is easy to keep in touch with the office from anywhere.
