Please note, someone has made a copy of my ad at 29843 Mcintyre St and my real listing has been removed. I've flagged the fraud listing of $800. Hopefully someone from Trulia will respond to my flag notification and remove the fraud listing.

Make sure our homes are priced right, send out mailings, talk to all the neighbors and use your social networks. Or you can hire a experienced professional in your area.
