  14. In January 2011 the OurBroker site was moved to a new server and a new host. This was a complex matter and in the process of moving files some posts were corrupted. We have fixed many posts, however with a site that has more than 1,000 posts it’s possible that additional posts require repair. If you see an item which seems to have been cut off or which contains unusual characters or verbiage, please contact us via email and we will make the repair.
  15. Peter G. Miller is a licensed real estate broker in the state of Maryland.
  16. If we receive e-mail from you, such e-mail becomes our property upon receipt and we reserve the right to retain your e-mail address for use as we wish. That said, in general we will respond to e-mail when and if appropriate or, in some cases, forward such mail to someone better able to provide information and assistance. While I am a licensed real estate broker, I do not seek or accept referral fees from other brokers for the mere act of forwarding e-mail.
  17. Peter G. Miller, AKA “OurBroker,” has attempted to provide accurate and authoritative information in regard to the subject matter covered. Such postings are made with the understanding that OurBroker is NOT engaged in rendering legal, accounting, or other professional services.
