selling real estate in fort wayne: There Is More Than One Way To Succeed At Real Estate. (Gasp!!!) - 09/06/12 05:50 AM
One of the things I love MOST about selling real estate is that (believe it or not) there are MANY different ways to succeed, and MANY different ways to do things. I know, I know, there are many real estate gurus and type A personalities that will tell you that THEIR way is the right way, and what you are doing is wrong.
