It was cold, messy and dark.…See More

Before you go back to school, take this quiz.

Before you go back to school, take this quiz. My academic pedigree has always been something I make light of, but it has served me well over the past couple decades.  I've always said, "With all of the education behind me, you would think I'd be smarter than I am."  Well, there's a lot of truth in that.I'm starting to find this in real estate too.  The learning never ends.  I've…See More

J. P. Morgan Chase is quickly becoming the bank of the incompetents J. P.
