Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The union of two well-known real estate companies will probably go mostly unnoticed in this area.

There was a time when having a relative or friend in real estate was not so common. Not anymore. Today the number has grown tremendously and in some cases entire families are in real estate. Who can blame them? Even doctors and lawyers are selling homes. But the blissful times are no more.
