Posts like these certainly are not my favorite to write. Whenever something doesn’t exactly reflect positively on what happens in my industry, it’s a far more difficult post to write.

Competition from those involved in the real estate industry and opportunity from others who may use those circumstances to their benefit.
I want to be extremely clear that the purpose of this podcast is not to alarm anyone. The purpose of this podcast is simply make San Carlos aware of situations that have happened in the past and are likely to keep happening. In the podcast I call out a few different situations.
