Since the business of handling real ] estate has assumed such mammoth pro portion* in Lu* Angelea, a few unsoru pulous men have engaged in it, and in J occasional instances by their trickery and double dealing hare brought a moat - honorable profession into disrepute. It is pleasing to know, however, that as a ' rule, the gentlemen who have had a large experienoe elsewhere and have faithfully represented their constituency, have been successful In handling the responsibility and trust confided to | tbem. Among this number may be enumerated tho well known and thor oughly established firm of Bryan A Kelsey, at No. 20 West First street, < who, after an experienoe in this line for seven years, have uot only won the oon- \ bdenco of • large clientage, bnt have. been very, successful in the handling of 1 an Immense volume of business, includ- 1 ing some of the most valuable properties i in the city and' county. They have ■ been very successful in handling tbe S Woodward and other tracts, through their untiring effort* to please and faith- i fnl representation. With their exten sive correspondence to all part* of the United States, and other excellent facili- 8 tiea, they are enabled to place properties tv advantage and at the same lime furnish newcomers with reliable informa- c tion about the particular localities they wish to make their future home. Being excellent judges of values, of both city c and oountry properties, and having an extensive list on their books, they are j propared to please the most fastidious. 1 This enterprising and reliable firm have also coupled lire insurance with their business, so they are prepared, with the agenoy of several reliable companies, to protoot their customers improvements. They tike particular pains with business intrusted to their care by non-residents, and pride themselves on the promptness and dispatch of any trust confided to them. In addition to their real estate and insurance business these gentlemen give particular attention to the rental ef properties, paying taxes, and a gen- i era! supervision of lands and improve- | ment* of non-resident* or distant corres pondent* who place such business in their care.
