In life, I have three passions: pasta, Desperate Housewives and apartment visits. By dint of doing it six times a week, I started to form a very strong bond of friendship with the real estate agents who today are like first cousins to me. Thanks to them, I discovered that we all had the seed of a real estate agent lying dormant in us. So would you be able to sell a one-bedroom apartment for €450,000 in the center of Dijon? We find out right away. After you, it’s on your right.
1. When you visit an apartment, you tap on the walls with your finger saying “That’s not a load-bearing wall, that’s placo”

While according to little Robert, a dressing room is a “Small room installed to store clothes”. Sad for the wardrobe and the closet…

Because yes, you are one of the people who have “an exterior”.
