Karen Peyton answered:
REO listing agent will not return calls or emails to discuss an offer. Any ideas on what I should do?? (She is a broker/owner so no "boss")

What is required for one to start their own Estate brokerage firm in Boston?
The most important thing is your "brokerage license"

A lot of successful broker's need a office (all about location) and some $$ in order to advertise and get things going.
