Business Scene for the week of 12/17/19


In last week’s business column we mentioned the name change from Susan River Realty to Bleu Frog Realty. Unfortunately, we inadvertently stated LeAnn Smith was the owner and broker, which is not correct. LeAnn is the owner and Bernard Barnetche is the real estate firm’s broker. We also made the same mistake with their respective titles in the classified ad that ran last week. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Located on Main Street in Susanville, Bleu Frog Realty specializes in residential and commercial real estate and property.
