Profound words and advice from a REALTOR that gets it.... Via Rob Arnold, metro Orlando full service, investor friendly & foreclosure Realtor (Sand Dollar Realty Group, Inc.): I have said it before and I will say it again.

All I received in return was a rousing ring of poo poos from most. I understand that the need to stick your head in the sand, hide it under the pillow...but really???? Seriously??? Did you not down in your gut see this coming??? Be pro-active if you own commercial folks...because if my Crystal ball is correct...hanging out and on is going to be (0 comments)

Another excellent blog post by Richard Zaretsky, Esq. Anyone facing foreclosure should read this...please feel free to share this information with your friends and family that may be in a foreclosure situation.
