We Realtors work 24/7, so I am thrilled to be getting away. Even so, with 4 listings and 2 properties in escrow, I will still need to be in touch via email, phone, etc. Because of our cruise, you won't be seeing me post as many blog entries as I normally do from now through 9/5, so I hope everyone has a great balance of the summer !!!
