A Tale of Two Listings

I am about to tell you two true stories.  I’m embarrassed to admit it, but both are actual detailed accounts of real listing presentations made by none other than yours truly.  They are as different as night and day, and they illustrate just how much easier this business can be, if you do it the right way or on the other hand, just how much harder it can be if you do it wrong.
