housing news: Richmond's Small Town Charm Offers Hope & Optimism - 09/09/10 07:56 AM
Ann and I just went over to the Libbie Market to grab a quick bite to take back to the office. The wonderful thing about Richmond is the fact that almost anywhere you go you are all but certain to run into someone you know. Well today is no exception. We ran into a friend of mine from college. She owns and manages a small placement firm that specializes in finding work for mostly mothers that have so much to contribute to the work force, but also wish to manage their families in addition to generating an income.

housing news: Follow up Post - What's the wait . . . - 09/09/10 06:50 AM
