  This Memorial Day was just an awesome day.  Lazy . . . yes.  Food?  Yes.  Muggy-but-not-to-hot weather with some moisture laden clouds here and there with a rumble of thunder.  Some sun streaking through the clouds heating things up, then cloud cover again. We had done our celebrating yesterday...

Most people don't like change.  It means having to re-adjust routine, change habits and throw your order of process into upheaval.  You are leaving your comfort zone.  Most people don't want to do this, so those people fail.  Even when that change could mean something GOOD people balk.   Real est...

I was surprised to see how many open houses there were listed in MRIS today.  I am not holding one myself, but I will be attending a couple of them.

  Are you working expireds?  If not, what is stopping you? When I started in real estate (which wasn't all that long ago), I was told not to waste my time with expireds.  Usually, if they didn't sell, something was wrong with them.  I was told to ask myself, "Why are they expired?  Why didn't the...

Real Estate Agents Who Care   This has been a real heart breaking year for me as a real estate agent.  Never once did I think I would be faced with trying to sell a house for a friend that was in the process of losing it (foreclosure). I want to remind everyone out there, that your customers shou...

Media Mayhem in the Real Estate Market   "The real estate market is dead!" " We're in a depression!  This is horrible!"  " You may as well hang up your open house signs and pop your balloons because recovery is futile!"  "Things have never been this bad!" Every time I turn on CNN, CBS or ABC News...

  If you were in the market for a peach, would you pick the one sitting in the bin that had the outer skin torn, was discolored or had bits of "other" green stuff stuck to it? Or would you choose the peach that was ripe but firm, with skin intact and clean?  That's what I thought you'd say . . ....
