  Uh oh....alert,, hang up the phone...mumble something, ANYTHING. Apologize!! Say Something! Oh yes, this was the answer on the other end of the phone when I called a former buyer to check in. This was really just a follow up call (not designed in anyway to remind them that if they ...
  The obvious answer is "YES"!! We are inspired all the time from feel-good stories of people doing extraordinary things. This weekend I started reading a wonderful book: "Eat and Run" by Scott Jurek Scott's book is about his journey to Ultra-Running...100 miles and up at a time. I have no desir...
I just came home from the emergency room. No this trip was not real estate related, but it applies nonetheless. What prompted this visit? A simple visit to the supermarket to pick up some avocados for a sudden guacamole urge. My friend and I have an afternoon in the sun and decided that the chips...
  "Turn Right At Machu Picchu" is actually a book written by Mark Adams. I haven't read it yet...I'm not going to Peru this week, my son is. My 16-year old son has been working for his Gold Medal Congressional Youth Award. So far we have reached the Gold Certificate level and have submitted for ...

I would never normally ask for a featured post...that seems so self-serving :). And frankly, I don't care if this is just sent by Daily Drop. See? I can be reasonable. But seriously....I think this question and the answers could be helpful for all of us, so I truly hope it is featured. What I'd l...
  Change is constant! Isn't that what we are told? So if it's a constant event in our lives, why is it so hard? The problem is that normally there is a choice that comes with the change. *Should we move*Should we start college/training*Should we change careers*Should we marry this person Whateve...
  "Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore" The practice of real estate rarely does operate in "Kansas." I think of Kansas as the heart of America....solid, practical, reasonable and honest. It feels like right now most of what I do is the opposite of these qualities. Especially working with short sal...
  I'm a hockey fan!! Actually to be more specific, I'm a fan of my hockey-playing son. Since he was 8 years old, and hockey came to Southern California, I have watched him race around the ice.  My son was good....not great....but good. He was Captain of many of his teams. I loved to watch him pl...
