How about a 48% premium; that is what a school district means to people in Chapel Hill vs. their counterparts in the Raleigh-Cary metro area and in Irvine, CA home prices have dropped 18% while the surrounding metro area has fallen an additional 15% on top of that. Another example, this time in the Midwest, finds Edina, MN home prices have fallen 14% but the greater Minneapolis area has seen them fall 27%. While finally in Andover, MA, home prices have only fallen 4%, while the greater Boston area has seen them fall 16%.

What about a name? Are you going to name it simply after yourself? Have you checked for the URL on the Internet? There are so many things that you have to check and stumbling block after stumbling block before you've got out of the blocks. What sounds good one day will absolutely feel awful the next.

say_what_400Round Table Realty Ready to Launch!

As soon as some final issues get resolved we should be able to launch the era of the Round Table. Finally, after years of working for the corporation, we can now cut out the 'guides', remove the 'system', and simply give customers what they want, expect, and deserve. No longer will we have to "say 'no' first" before the 'man' will do what should be done. We can do what should be done from the start. The Round Table is refreshing, innovative, unique, energized, multifaceted, team-oriented, customer centric, and fun! The Round Table is not just the place you want to work with, it could very well be the team you want to join. There is nothing better than waking up, wanting to go to work, and enjoying what you do.
