                                        Condo Listings:
                                            When you enter a Condo listing, the PROPERTY
                                        SUBTYPE should be CONDOMINIUM. Property
                                        Subtype is a REQUIRED field, BUT you should not
                                        use both of the property subtype fields.
                                            A lot of agents have complained when searching
                                        for a condo, that residential house listings also show
                                        up. This is because when a Condo listing is entered,
                                        the agent/office assistant is entering in the Property
                                        Subtype 1) condominium and in Property Subtype
                                        2) residential house (or vise versa).
                                            This will also hold true to MOBILE HOMES and
                                        BOATHOUSES. So unless you want your
                                        CONDO, MOBILE HOME or BOATHOUSE to
                                        show up in both searches, PLEASE do not use both
                                        of the Property Subtypes.

FAR Profiles—Joe Hayberger
                    Joseph A. Hayberger was born in Lorain, Ohio under the zodiac sign of Scorpio. He is a
                    REALTOR® with Strayer Group. His family members include his wife Kathy, sons
                    Troy (wife-Kerry-Madison and Hannah) and Trevor (wife Wendy—Hunter, Mason and

                    Joe knew he wanted to be a REALTOR® when his fascination with older homes led to a
                    desire to begin a new career. Fate, divine intervention, pushed him into being an Educa-
                    tor, however, he chose to be a REALTOR®. He has been very blessed to enjoy the bene-
                    fits of both careers.

Joe got his license back in the old days. Not exactly sure when, 1976. When he is not working he enjoys
movies, music, dancing, sports (playing and watching) and time with the family and grandkids. What sur-
prises people most about me is that despite bad knees, he can still play a very good game of basketball. His
pet peeve is being caught by the trains on Venice Road! The last book he read was Becoming an Invitational
Leader: A New Approach to Professional and Personal Success. Most people don’t know that he is shy, if
you believe that then he has a bridge to Canada he would like to sell you!

His next personal goal he is working on is an on-going occurrence….continue to learn and get better. Joe
feels the three words that best describe him are Inquisitive, Listener and Forthright. If he were not working
now, he would be taking a long overdue vacation. His favorite restaurant is a tough choice since he has
three—Better Half, Jolly Doughnuts and Port Sandusky.

Joe feels the benefits of his membership in FAR is the opportunity to network with all in order to become
better in all aspects of real estate.
