The Impervious Market

Yes, folks…we’re indeed in the impervious market. See this adorable house above? It’s a very cute 2 bedroom house in San Bruno that I sold earlier this week. It’s an estate sale and it required some preparation prior to going on the market (like most all houses now!). Of course I have a fairly large […]
