Make Sure That Contractors Are Licensed

There was an email from MAR this week covering this new law. I also received emails from fellow Agents. It will be important to set up a system to track this. There are maybe a dozen or so licensed contractors that routinely are used in a Realtor's  business. May as well start getting the paperwork soon.
