Brick&Mortar Launch

August 12th, 2012 · No Comments

For the past several months I have been in the woodshed, carving out a new concept for the inception of Brick&Mortar.  The Real Estate Brokerage has been born from the absolute need of true, quality customer service, in an area that desperately needs honest salespeople.  This environment isn’t an easy thing to create when misleading […]
