I Had a Great Open House Today! - 04/25/10 07:09 PM
I had a great open house today at 136 Hebron Road, Bolton, CT. I haven't done an open house in a while because I, like many people, did not feel that they really worked.

You know the feeling--you are rolling along, everything is going like clockwork, you are ticking every item off your to-do list, feeling pretty proud of yourself, when CRASH your whole world comes to a screeching halt.
