Great info Debbie

Love the information and looking forward to hearing more.

Meh

The March 27 2021 episode is just nonsense. It’s one big scare tactic trying to convince people how important real estate agents are. The current real estate model is dying. Good riddance to paying outrageous fees to these “indispensable” agents.
