In the process, I'd forgotten that my grandfather sold real estate. In his day, there probably wasn't a licensing process. He just built and sold homes. An A-frame model home stood between his house and ours. When he died, my brother moved in and lived there several years before building a ranch on the other side of where my grandfather's home stood.
So, real estate is in my blood, one generation removed. I dedicate my first sale to James Aaron Roberts.
