Packing and moving is one of the most dreaded parts of the process. I would add that before you start packing, or even better before you list the house for sale, get rid of the items that you know won’t  be making the move with you. Donate or sell items that are in good condition and declutter. I...

Well, duh Karen. Because I want to see the inside of the house.  Well, that may be the obvious answer, but ultimately there is more to it than that.  Open house visitors may have an agenda.  Most of the time, you have a list of homes that you are trying to see that day.  Some of the reasons that ...

I have been in some great training classes in the past year.  I am amazed at the difference of opinion that most of the "experts" have about what works best to market to your database.  Some say that direct mailers are a waste of money, while others tout that if you are consistent, you will get n...
