Spring Texas real estate abbreviations: What do they mean?

The real estate industry like other industries has its fair share of abbreviations. And I would have to say that I am just as guilty as the next Spring Texas Realtor in using real estate abbreviations in my correspondence. I throw them around assuming that everyone knows exactly what they mean.
