Can you imagine anything worse than having to sell your home as a short sale? I can't! These aren't the people who are "working the system" they are losing their homes and they are doing the best they can to address the problem head first. They are not simply walking away and they are not beating...

I found this couple....or rather they found me....online. They had been researching agents after using one they felt was not giving them good representation.

Quick question for everyone....would you PAY for Facebook? Twitter? My Space? I see blogs about the value of these sites to business. I don't really utilize it for that.....I use my Facebook for fun. What happens if they start charging? How much would they lose in advertising and in users....woul...

Clearly the real estate industry is going through a self-esteem crisis. We have had so many interesting discussions about this. Are we salespeople? advisers? facilitators? greedy? altruistic? I think the funny thing is that only a few years ago, we'd have been seen as "lucky entrepreneurs" who we...

I just wanted to make this "thank you" public!!! This is just one more wonderful thing about our  Active Rain Community. I have enjoyed Debi's pictures on AR for a long time.
