windham me: Gray Maine, houses for sale that buyers don't know about. - 07/24/09 08:14 AM
I have been working as a Realtor in Gray Maine for over 11 years representing both buyers and sellers. I like representing both, but they are completely different many ways. Finding the right home is a process that takes a lot of work.  Sometimes the houses for sale on the market are not the right home.  That is when a good buyers agent will be worth every cent YOU pay them.
