When Greg is on Vacation Colin takes care of his clients and business. This is what Mr. Hume had to say : "Greg, Colin is really doing an awesome job with this. He negotiated like some kind of nuclear tiger and got the house for $330k, and I never had to wait for info or service despite being added to his work schedule. I am super impressed! You have a worthy heir to your name here. I can only hope for the same with one of my kids"

Finding a real estate agent who is right for you requires doing a little homework, and asking the right questions. Choosing an agent is a decision that could ultimately cost or save you thousands of dollars. Keep in mind the individual you choose will be handling almost every maneuver in the biggest financial investment of your life. Experience, interests, and expertise vary from agent to agent, so you should be asking very specific questions in order to align your own needs with the abilities of an appropriate representative. Use the following list of questions as a guide to finding the agent that is right for you:
How long have you been involved in residential real estate in this area?
Electricity in the home is so commonplace that it's easy to forget how dangerous it can be. According to the American Institute for Preventive Medicine, an electrical shock can knock you unconscious, cause a serious burn, or even stop your heartbeat.
Fortunately, there are some simple things you can do to reduce the risk.
Install safety plugs in outlets that young children can reach.
Never plug in anything with a frayed or otherwise damaged power cord.
Never use a plugged-in computer, hair dryer, or other electrically-powered item near a filled sink or bathtub. This includes phones with power cords.
Never touch anything electrical with wet hands or while standing in water. (Water is a remarkably efficient conductor of electricity.)
