The NCAA men’s basketball tournament is consuming a lot of bandwith in everyone’s offices.  Perhaps even slowing down the speed of emailing all of those contracts, leases and loan documents around the country.  Have you ever wondered if there is a connection between the real estate industry and the NCAA Tournament ?
