An incident occured yesterday during the early morning commute and at least one lucky commuter was able to snap a picture that was shared numerous times on social media. It was a typical rainy, winter day. Several accidents had been reported and I was just waking from my slumber when my favorite ...
It's the next to the last day of the year, and what am I doing?I'm sitting in front of my laptop taking the Mandatory Quadrennial Code of Ethics Class. For those who may not know, all Realtors are required to take this class every four years as a refresher course and to keep up with the annual ch...

Once, I backed a car into the ditch leaving a listing appointment.  Another time I ...
