Australian Auction Results – March 2009

When you’re looking to buy or sell real estate, regardless of what State in Australia you’re concerned with, auction clearance results are used as a barometer of the market.

Sydney Real Estate Agent Michael Marquette Reveals a Little More (Expose part 2)

I have never been a great photographer – I have relied on friends who take wonderful shots to make sure that I’m well covered and my wonderful friends never let me down.

The Swarovski Crystal Computer
