Crazy Shit In Real Estate


Don’t sign eviction papers just because a deputy asks you to! Candy Owens, a REALTOR® in Chapel Hill, was showing a home when a deputy and an official came to the door and tried serving her eviction papers – despite the fact that she wasn’t the right person to be asking. Listen in to learn how Candy finally convinced them that she – and her clients – weren’t the homeowners, and learn why it’s so important for REALTORS® to know what’s going on in local politics.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
