These three ads have been my top performers for several weeks now. I mix these in with listings and the typical "FREE Search Tool" ad and these always seem to come out on top. I have a 4th one that has been performing well for a few days but I am saving it as a secret weapon. You will have to wait to see that one!

He looked at each request as a check that he had to write and didn't want to hear how I saw it as a small obstacle to overcome (4 comments)

What is wrong with this picture? Anyone?This E-Bay auction was only for the box yet there were 36 bids for it that drove the price up to $565.00. Obviously someone wasn't reading the details very well. Obviously there we quite a few people that weren't reading it!That wouldn't happen to you, would it?There is an agent in my office who is getting ready to put the proverbial screws to a large bank who signed and accepted a purchase and sale agreement that asked for seller paid closing costs, a new stove / range unit, and a new roof (up to (41 comments)
