With buyers, that means making sure they find a house they’ll enjoy, rather than just trying to make a sale.”

For Slatton, that means listening to what clients tell him, and, based on that, offering options they may not have considered. “I had a client who said Continue reading “Financial Planning for PV Real Estate”
