If you read my REI journal then you know I gave up trying to be a REI in Westcher NY and now I am looking in Charlotte North Carolinnnaa! Since I can not be down there yet I am following Angie's story and looking for property mangement companies. I need help with the question I should ask .It's 1:30am here ( I must be ready to do this.) and I don't have work till 12pm(to 9pm) so I was hoping to start calling in the mornining. I need advice if I got the right directions for New Yorkie Carolina Sucess or if I should start from scratch.
Here is what I have so far.
