To date, none of the agents that I have had contact with in North Carolina, Virginia or California have seen one commercial spot or received one legitimate lead.<br/>The purpose of this post is to warn other Realtors about this scam.</p><br \><br \>13 replies Fri, 06 Apr 2012 17:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/The-Top-Agent-Monolith-Media-BEWARE/438121/ 2012-04-06T17:45:00Z I listed my house for rent in Cary, but it shows up under Apartments for Rent.

I think for the clients sake, 6-7 is enough, unless there is a time problem, like out of town buyers or availability of either spouse (if that is the case) If you go longer, I always suggest we stop for lunch or coffee.
