What is the Most Important Thing for a Sacramento Real Estate Agent?

My goal in selling Sacramento real estate is not, surprisingly, to make a big whopping pile of money. Most people think that's the reason we real estate agents sell real estate.

How to Be a Top Producer
share
I know when I came into real estate back in the mid 1970s, I did not know what the term Top Producer meant. I had heard it bantered about, though. It sounded like working on an assembly line, maybe putting parts on an automobile; I didn't really… more
When An Agent Cancels a Sacramento Short Sale
