It's frustrating to hear comments like "Why, do we need a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce?" Or, "the ATC (Advanced Technology Center) is just for troubled students?" Or, "Disney will be opening a new resort area here - they just purchased land!" (How long has THAT rumor been going around?).
The truth is that all these statements can be answered with just a little bit of research and education. And, as a Realtor, someone who is supposed to KNOW my town - then I believe it to be my duty to know my town so that I'm not passing along misinformation or completely false info (lies) to clients and potential movers to the area.
What can you do to be more informed?
Knowing your town is a great part of knowing your business as a Realtor. I challenge you this week to be "in the know"!
