Hesitated and didn’t go with my gut.

Information that is useful!  I like it!  More factual information about architecture and style will always be welcome!

Jonathan Chandler on 09/01/2016

Awesome idea! Definitely something that can help Realtors, regardless of experience, just to stay knowledgeable of the product they’re selling. Like @Rick said, quizzes for every facet of the real estate industry would be a beneficial tool for all Realtors. Thanks!

@Rick: Thanks. Yes, the Focus newsletter that linked to this quiz is sent to all active members of TAR.

@Ward —-  Well done on this Quiz.
We could use more of these, and not just on factual topics.  Let’s add a quiz on contracts, ethics, and communications with other Agents.
Question:  does this email go out to ALL licensed Realtors?
...I hope so…
