Last week I wrote "Quality not quantity" as the first in a series of 4. Its based on the "Four Agreements" book (movement). The hardest of the agreements, agreements with myself, however, was (not is): Don't take things personally. I say was because now its just how I'm wired. The best reason to ...
My friend Joan makes great points! Don't DIY if you don't know what you are doing. To add to that, don't DIY anything requiring licensed trades ie electrical, plumbing, or HVAC. In Texas our contracts say for the repairs a buyer requests that they must be performed by a licensed professional.  Bu...
These are really awesome tips from my friend Kathy, a home stager. I love that she pays attention to things that don't show up in the camera such as the garbage disposal.  There used to be a time when we'd bake cookies during open houses, but today we want to smell fresh, clean in our homes.

I'm sharing a story from my book, Are You Ready for Commercial Real Estate. I had fun writing it and this particular intro into the financial chapter humored me. I hope you enjoy. I once told a Finance Professor, Prof. Kadapakkam (Prof. K) Business Finance is not my strong suit. I requested favor...
It's been awhile since I've blogged but I think about my Activerain community often. I am glad I see so many of you on Facebook and LinkedIn.  I got out of residential real estate and now only do commercial, which is how I got into real estate in the first place. I also branched out into consulti...
You may not have even known, but last fall I made a big tadah about moving to Austin, Texas. But I'm moving back to the Greater San Antonio area next week. I didn't say San Antonio because even though my new house is surrounded by San Antonio, and has a San Antonio address, it's in the City of Al...
