Rules of Thumb for Showing Houses

A Floyd Wickman blog by Mike Pallin Let’s pretend that you are brand new to real estate. Just licensed, still wet behind the ears, and new to commission sales.

So You’ve Hired A New Training Director

A Floyd Wickman Blog by Mike Pallin Congratulations, your company must be prospering! I could stop right there and the whole point would be made, but let’s not assume anything.
