Remember, real estate is a business

Letters from the Home Front

This week I received a call from a gentleman requesting a little volunteer work on my part. These calls are not uncommon. They usually involve a request for a market analysis to support a property tax appeal, and we are happy to help.

We help as a matter of goodwill — what you might call "business development" — with the hope that they will remember us if they ever do need to buy or sell a home.
