Orphans May Need Your Help

harper teamThere’s been a lot of shake, rattle and roll in the real estate industry of late. We had months and months of bubble talk, followed by meltdown mania and of late it’s been mostly repo man.

With many Realtors, mortgage brokers and real estate agents throwing in the towel or getting the dreaded pink slip, it should come as no surprise that there are thousands of orphaned clients out there that could use some professional help in this “market of change.”

If you have an orphan story, please share it and any flashes of genius you might have on how to reach out and help these lost souls.
