WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PINK BATHROOM?!

TALES OF SEASONED BROKER I was meeting a client for the first time and had been unsuccessful over the phone in  “extracting”  from her what kind of a home she was looking for.  I lined up a few houses to see in various price ranges and, as I  would often do, we began with one…
