The New Bridge in Our Future: Cape Fear Crossing

There is a new bridge in the future of the Cape Fear region, and properties in Northern Brunswick County may be impacted by construction of the NCDOT project, which is currently in the planning and environmental study stage. Home buyers purchasing in Northern Brunswick County, including Leland, Bellville, etc., need to understand the proposed Cape Fear Crossing road and bridge project.

That's when it's really important to turn to leverage.

Gary Keller, the founder of Keller Williams, which is the largest real estate company in the world by agent count, closed sales volume, and units sold, teaches us in his book The ONE Thing, to identify the one topic - the one thing - that you can do today that will allow everything else to be either unnecessary or not i ...
