weschester county real estate: A T.E.A.M. FOR ALL SEASONS - 02/07/17 05:25 AM

weschester county real estate: 🎄🎄🎄Real Estate & The Holidays: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - 12/19/16 03:42 AM

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
When the houses are selling and kids jingle belling,
And everyone saying "I bought it this year"!
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
It's the hap-happiest season of all,
With those holiday greetings, Cafe Realty meetings, 
When your agent happens to call.
It's the hap- happiest season of all!
There'll be appointments for hosting,

And showings out in the snow.

Relationships long, long ago.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! 
There'll be much party going,
And hearts will be glowing, 
When closings are near... 
It's the most … (0 comments)
