Coming off an impressive victory over the Phoenix Mercury, the Sparks have another chance at their Western Conference rival on Friday night.

Why You Should Make Sure to Double Check with a Certified Real Estate Agent

Why you might ask, would anyone want to talk to a real estate agent about buying or selling a home? Simply put, agents work for the sellers of homes, and they are paid based on the number of sales that they make. Selling houses is not a job for everyone, nor is it even easy.
