I had penciled in to take off from 12/19 until 1/2/08, and was really excited about having all that time for Christmas cards, etc.I have ended up taking on a new investor buyer and showed him property on Christmas Eve.

I wore them for a few weeks and noticed I was grabbing my reading glasses all the time; not just some of the time.While my readi...

I've got a great friend, at the tail end of a horrendous divorce. She's found a terrific rental, close to her current residence, and is moving in the middle of this month.With the portability portion of the tax reform, it would appear she can "port" her savings from her current house, despite the...
