Let’s Agree…..To Disagree.

While sorting through my mail this afternoon, I began reading a real estate flyer from a company that shall remain nameless.

My calendar says January, but the thermostat says mid-March.

Perhaps this is the reason for the unusually…um…unusual January real estate market we are now experiencing…
