"What does it matter?" no it was not asked by a politician but by a buyer relocating to our area. They wanted the most home for the cheapest price and location did not matter.

Does Social Media help you or bug you? What is the best way to use Social Media in Real Estate? Many of you may shout out how not to use it. I too, get pestered every day with mountains of unsolicited listings and a new trend of tagging my name as well as other agents names in ones post to attrac...
