Oh well, I'll go with the flow. I love my office and the other agents I work with are great. Still spending money - st...
It's official - I am a REALTOR®. I past my test in July '07 on the first try, (thanks to a weekend cram course), signed up with a Real Estate company, received my REALTOR® distinction (read as pay more money = your now a REALTOR®), and am now spending lots of money in the high hopes of actually m...
