As a member of HAR (Houston Association of Realtors), my blog was actually hosted on the HAR.com website for several years before this SMARTePLAN website was created. So blogs previous to 2015 can best be accessed by linking directly to the HAR site. Once on the HAR.com Site, the right navigation dates are clickable and each opens up & provides a table of contents of previous blog posts.
Or for your convenience, the tabbed index at the bottom of this page is categorized by TOPIC (instead of date) —- clicking the title will link you directly to the selected blog article.
