Professionalism Tip of the Week: Courtesy Call
If you are delayed or must cancel an appointment or showing, call the listing agent.
Most sellers take time and pride in getting their property ready for us to show. If you are delayed or something comes up that you can't make the appointment, common courtesy is to let the listing agency know.

Calling All Photographers!! Donations Needed!
