For others, however, the lack of choices, independence, or simply the desire to cut costs and handle their own labor is taken away and replaced with an uncomfortable fee.
Much like the above, HOA's tend to have strict regulations that can often border on the ridiculous. Many homeowners find...

Providing your fur child with special furniture to snuggle on the couch with you will make your baby happy. With the aging process, many four-legged variants struggle to leap onto the couch, or simply leap down. Spines, hips, arms, and legs can suffer some aging blows, but with the right set of pet stairs or ottoman, your animal can move to and from with ease.

Making the switch itself can be a scary leap off that ledge, but any agent looking to switch to a team setting immediately sees the benefits versus the latter.
We understand--life is hard, and sometimes we can't handle the stress. When you're a real estate agent, oftentimes you are forced into the field to do open houses--disallowing you from being at the office to tackle those important clients.
