    I'm a Realtor and see/hear all the feedback. Some of it is useful. Have to say most of it is overly critical and stuff buyers know (or should have known) before they came. Like "basement wasn't...

    A friend once told me..."If you don't want to be a victim, don't act like one." She locks every door and now I do too. That statement really hit home with me.
