"Radiant Pro Selling: Are They a Buyer? 3 Ways to Tell"
We’ve all been there. Trying to make a sale but by the end of your pitch you realize that you have just wasted your time with someone whom you’ll never strike a deal.

"GOOD NEWS: Green Innovation Continues to Grow"
Home construction and remodeling remain weak sectors of our economy. Homeowners still don’t have confidence that the money they pay to remodel a kitchen or build an addition will translate into meaningful increases in resale value. But green home improvements that save energy have stayed remarkably strong. And manufacturers haven’t stopped pushing to develop better insulation, more efficient appliances, low-watt lighting and other green products.
