Overrated and Underrated. July 9, 2014 Overrated - Ice cream cake. My broker had another birthday today and there was leftover ice cream cake in the freezer waiting for me at the office.

The Weekly Wrap Up - June 30, 2013 I've been negotiating a listing of mine all week. It's never fun to wait for the other side to respond, when it takes 2 days (and counting). After a heart to heart sit-down, I came to the conclusion that a buyer I was working with would be better off renting an ...
My Greatest Failure? Is There Such A Thing? I'm not sure that being a "failure" is necessarily a bad thing. I got a D- once on a report card (stupid Geometry Theorems!), but I got through it.
