What To Do When The Neighborhood Has Been Knocked Already…. A Sales Reps Nightmare Another Ones Treasure

Coming from the largest knocked neighborhood Arizona, trust me when i say this, turf is turf. I know everyone wants fresh turf where no one has been before but stop and think about it, does that really exists ?
