Closing with Nikki Alvarado

This blog post is a journalistic approach to a realtors day-to-day life. Nikki Alvarado, business owner and full-time realtor contracted me to follow her on one of her closing days:

Early mornings on a closing day consists of hundreds of phone calls and emails in order to have a smooth day. In other words: making sure that the days challenges have found solutions. Nikki was getting ready for the walk through with the inspector and the future home-owner.
