Well, here I am at the end of my first week on AR, and I have to tell you this place rocks. I'm on Facebook, and I have mentioned AR about four times this week.  I love the wealth of information, the kinship, the efforts to help that you find here.

As I get ready to close this latest deal, I am reminded that I should give my sellers a gift for letting me represent them.  I have listened to them, and have a gift picked out, but once again I find myself wondering what amount I should spend.  How much is too much?

Yes, things have slowed down, but that does not mean we have to head for the hills.  If you have any questions about real estate, let me find help you find the answers.  There are no "stupid" questions, and you should never b...
