Some great tips on interview listing agents, it pays to do your research:
 
Putting your house on the market?  One of the most important decisions you will make is choosing the professionals who will help you sell.  Not all Realtors and Home Stagers are created equal. 


Just because they are professional, it doesn't mean they are proficient.
In order to choose the right professionals, you are going to have to invest some time. 
This is not a decision to take lightly. 
You are going to have to ask a lot of questions.

According to the EPA, Radon is an invisible radioactive gas that seeps into homes undetected through foundation cracks, and can reach harmful levels if trapped indoors. It travels up from underground sources of uranium in the earth's crust. EPA estimates that one in 15 homes will … (3 comments)
