coldwell banker united: "The best way out is always through" - 12/21/15 02:33 PM
In order to arrive at a destination, one must travel through. It must be done in person so your presence is required. As Robert Frost said: “The best way out is always through.”
The holiday season for some is filled with fun activities for family and friends but for others the season is not so joyful and can be lonely. There are many life lessons to learn but if you desire to really experience the miracles of Christmas make time to learn to share the gift of time and patience with others.
We are all busy and life is moving so quickly! … (27 comments)

Is it still true you have to “List to Last”?

I started selling advertising for a Real Estate company and watched with interest at the agents in the office. It didn’t take long for me to realize I could be a Realtor and a good one!
