  How many of you have an unlicensed assistant or a secretary.  If you do, how do you use them.  It seems to me a full time secretary would cost (at least) $30,000 a year.

I went back 2 years (April 06 to March 08) and looked at sample listing and sold history. The only month within that time frame that more homes were listed than sold was December '06. I don't think that month is meaningful because listings generally are depressed in December. Besides, maybe it i...
