Today we celebrate and honor Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. It's hard to believe he's been gone for 45 years, yet, each year we dedicate a National Holiday in his memory, we quote him endlessly, and because of him, we now have a President that if it were not for Dr. King and the Civil Right Movement in the 60's would not have been elected President of the United States.

Your home has to be the best looking (even if it's not). Based on the photos, they will either nix it, or call their agent to set up an appointment to see it...in person. Buyers,...Continue Reading!

What is a Walk Through, and Why Is It Important? First, let's call it what it really is. Back in the day we used to call it a "walk through" because you walked through the house 5-7 days prior to close of escrow to inspect the repairs made, but it was changed years ago to be named "Condition of Property".
