Anytime I get a repair request from a buyers agent I ask that they accompany it with an inspection report. I need to make certain that these requests are being generated from a professional source.

What good is a Sailor who hates the water? Why would someone be a nurse when the sight of blood turns their stomach? I don't understand Realtors who refuse to work on Sunday.
