Manny being Manny....... - 10/18/07 10:27 AM
By Howard Ulman, AP Sports Writer | October 18, 2007 CLEVELAND --Boston slugger Manny Ramirez says "who cares?" if the Red Sox don't get to the World Series.

The Cleveland Indians need one more win to go to the World Series for the first time in 10 years. The Indians have not won a World Series since 1948.

Is a Home Stager necessary? - 10/11/07 08:17 PM
Not Necessarily....... Sorry to be so non-committal but it is true. I have been fortunate in representing sellers who not only have lovely homes but they have good taste.

Often times these homes are marketed "as is". The price will reflect the condition. With (0 comments)
Interesting Fact...... - 10/08/07 10:44 AM
Last week I did an analysis of the current Natick Real Estate Market. One of the items on that analysis was the number of Active Single Family homes on the market in Natick. The number was 126.

But it is indicating that while we are not in (1 comments)
