Great and stellar school reporting.  I'm kind of glad that I don't have to go to school all over again.  However, living life is a lifetime of learning.  Hope you had a good weekend.

Hi Everyone!  School assignments are so important to most buyers in our area--that is generally one of the first questions we get--"What school zone is that home in?"  And the zoning changes often too so, we have to stay on top of the new zoning each year as well.

And, Cherise, YES, living IS an ongoing lesson, isn't it?!  I loved going to school and am thinking about going back if I ever get the time!  I would like to get a degree in marketing--something that will help my business.  We shall see!
