Real Estate Life Circa 1980
This is what we called the "Multiple Listing Service" or MLS prior to the "internet" being a thing!!  Yes, you heard that right.  All brokers sent out notices ONCE A WEEK to update each other with new listings & price changes.  There was no other way to "search" for homes that were available for sale.  ?
