A neighbor had died unexpectedly that very day and Mark, being clergy in his church, went over to help with the situation, as best as he could. When he returned to our home, I said: “Mark, my eyes are moving and I’m not moving them.” They were fluttering non-stop, that’s how I would explain it.

What You Need To Know When You Buy A Home

Both of my licenses are inactive at the moment but I keep up to date on my continuing education classes. I can activate my licenses at any time. I owned a mortgage company for about 15 years and was actively selling and listing homes for over ten years.
