Here’s a list of 15 “Must Ask” Condo Buying Questions (and a free downloadable Condo Buying Checklist) you can use to help your clients make choices they’ll be happy with long term.
Did you know that testimonials are one of most under-used sales tools in real estate? The power of your current clients to sell your value to others is far greater than your own power to sell yourself. And unlike most forms of real estate advertising, testimonials are free!
