Collection of Posts Re: When an Agent Offers Rep
« on: November 19, 2020, 01:07:44 PM »
I started collecting posts about The Call a few years ago. I saw someone posted a link to a list of questions to ask an agent when they offer rep and that people really appreciated that, so I thought I would share the links I've gathered with you fine people. Hopefully they'll come in handy!  :) (Some of these are pretty old, so make sure when you do your research that you also look for newer posts.)
