I have been on the seach for GREAT Crab Cakes in Roanoke Virginia for almost a year now. It amazes me what some Roanoke VA restaurants call Crab Cakes.

This is what an agent said to me about the inspector who was doing the inspection on one of my listings! You are the consumer, generally you are the one paying for the inspection. Usually this will be your (1 comments)
