Thanksgiving is so much more than waking up early for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, feasting on delicious food and cheering on our favorite football teams. It’s a day when we gather with family and friends--some that we see every day and some that we’ve missed profoundly over the last year. It’s an opportunity to reunite and reconnect. We can exchange stories, share laughs and remember our fondest memories together. Emphasis on the word together . Eating together, laughing together, playing games together, feeling thankful together-- it’s the best. Here at Missouri REALTORS ® , we want you to have the happiest Thanksgiving. Therefore, ...

Missouri REALTORS ® , "Restrictive Covenants,” which often impede on real property rights, come in many shapes and sizes. Included within a separate recorded document covering an entire subdivision or other development (and/or in a deed of conveyance transferring title to a specific lot), such covenants typically impose restrictions on property use ( e.g ., prohibitions against use as a business; parking of recreational vehicles; specific size or architectural style) that a subsequent property owner is contractually bound to honor.

In today’s ever changing world, uncertainty is always a factor. In order to mitigate this uncertainty, we reached out on THE LANDING and asked REALTORS ® for their best safety advice while on the job. Here's what they had to say: Know where you’re going, who you’re going with, and when you’re going. This idea came from Cricket Anderson who said she has a calendar in her office that all her agents share and every appointment she has goes on the calendar, including information such as who she’s showing with, and what the showing times are.
