I've known Rae for several years, and I have received incredible real estate advice from her. She is extremely knowledgable in all facets of real estate, from investing to short sales to buying your first home. She demonstrates that knowledge in her popular blog on real estate which is read widely, and known throughout the world. In addition, she is a true social media guru, and I've learned a great deal from her in that area as well. I strongly recommend Rae if you need any real estate advice, and if you want the up to the minute status on Tampa real estate
