We're Not All The Same

Although everyone knows at least one real estate broker in California, how many know a real estate broker who understands the market?

The differences between them and me are numerous and some are stated on this page. And there are thousands of websites that can show you current listings. But some sites may show you listings that don’t exist or existed years ago. And I have done and can do Commercial real estate.
