There is no business there! She wasn't getting any phone calls and no one had walked through the door asking for her. She didn't get one listing the entire 3 hours (that's right....3 HOURS) she spent talking to other agents and drinking coffee...hmmmm, now THAT'S surprising. Do you know what she ...
Between my daughter and I, my living room is littered with clothes. Trying to plan for our trip to Italy.
