Real Estate Agent - RE/MAX ACCESS
Been thinking about this since yesterday's experience with American Airlines. When we have a client that takes too much time and leaves of needing time off before we deal with our great customers and clients, what can we do?  I have referred these people to other agents that might have a more com...
