The fact that buyers' agents now input their offers into Homepath does not save the listing agent a nano-second of time. When a buyer's agent enters an offer into the Homepath system, the listing agent still has to retrieve that offer and then turn around and enter that information into the Fanni...

So the Black Friday hoopla is pretty meaningless to me. Most of my adult life, we traveled to see family over the holiday. Having just arrived and already facing the trip back home meant that shopping on the day afte...
"And make time to play a board game with your family," my daughter admonished her freshmen in college English 140, as she wished them a Happy Thanksgiving or Great American Turkey Sacrifice Day. They laughed at the Turkey Sacrifice and even a little bit about the board game. Surprisingly, several...
