I have been on AR for about 6 weeks and I am number one in my area. I am still finishing up my license requirements for Idaho so I can't call myself an agent or sales agent or licensed agent. But I can call myself a local. I can also call myself a professional.
I am local to the Magic Valley and I know it as good as anyone else. I think this area is one of the best in US in which to live. Great home prices, loads of recreation, very low unemployment, and not much gov't restriction on business start ups.
I should have my license in May sometime and at that time I will start doing business as a real estate agent. Until then, keep reading.
