When buying or selling a home it's very easy to get advice from what seems like hundreds of  different people. Insight versus real estate advice and what you do with that information matters.

Before showing a buyer a home I have to "schedule an appointment" and write down the showing instructions. I also have certain obligations as a Reatlor (per our Code of Ethics). to be honest, I do my best to be considerate and polite when entering someones home. Sometimes we Realtors get so busy ...

Married Realtors who are also a "team" got better financial perks with their broker versus other "teams" with non-married team leaders.
