I am a turkey. No really, I’m a real turkey with feathers and everything . . .

Legal Q&A | Which standard form contract should I use, residential or commercial?

QUESTION: I am a turkey. No really, I’m a real turkey with feathers and everything. Anyway, the entire rafter is atwitter because we are about to go on a permanent, all-expense paid trip! The destination is a surprise, but it’s supposed to be very, very warm. Before we go, I want to sell the roost I’ve been living in which also contains several units I’ve been renting to some squirrels who operate a nut shop. Which standard form contract should I use, residential or commercial? I would ask my agent, but they’re busy making cranberry sauce for some reason.



Thank YOU for another great year!

As we celebrate a time of thankfulness this week, we want to say thank YOU for another successful year. You accomplished so much in your business, your association and in your communities.
