Mentor a relative or a friend and pass your business on, partner with other Realtors to reduce the amount of time you must commit, or prepare to sell it off to an interested and trustworthy investor. Check out the concepts and advice here to help you make the best choice for your business, and start preparing long ahead of the deadline so any transitions you do make will be smooth and painless.
