OMG the stuff I could say here... Ah, yes, though, it *is* a 'game' indeed! So, can someone in the know perhaps tell me when it became 'allowed' to list basement SF in the total? This seems to be the 'new normal' for Rhinehart Realtors anyhow...

Bi Al hits it out of the park. with a "home" run. I've always said the Ann Arbor area is blessed with top notch talent in the Real Estate game. I'd put us up against cities twice our size. I'm thankful for that. Here's to making the 40 Under 40!!
