Here is a NOVA agent who is getting a little heat for their blog post.  A lot of folks are concerned that this "heat" is a violation of his First Amendment rights.  Here is the trackback: Here are my comments that left on the Real...
I've recently had my eyes open that my job as a REALTOR is becoming less about listing and selling homes, and more about counseling my clients to reduce damages. I've been very successful as a listing agent for the past many years, just before the hyper market ramp up and even this past year, but...
I have wanted to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra for years!  My awesome Brother in Law got my wife and I tickets to see the show in Richmond yesterday and it was the single coolest event I’ve ever been to.  It was way cooler than repelling and zip-lining in the canopy of Jamaica or even swimming...
