I could not put this any better myself.  I get asked this question all of the time. Why of course you can be present for a showing, its your house, but you really shouldn't.  I relate it to going furniture shopping and even after you tell the salesman you are just looking he lurks 3 couches back ...

I recently went on a listing call on an expired listing.  The seller is a very nice gentleman going through a tough time. His home was on the market for quite some time. Although a very nice home, a little dated.  Just some new carpets and some light fixtures would be needed.  As we were discussi...

I read an article today about a Kentucky business man who bought out the remaining inventory of a closing K-Mart store and donated it all to charity. It came to mind that "what a nice gesture, I wish I could do something like that", but alas, I am not a rich business man with money to burn.  But...

   I recently read an article in Business First regarding Fort Erie Race Track.  It seems as though the Canadian government has pulled the slots from the race track, essentially pulling much needed money from the track in order for it to continue to remain open.  It saddens me that an institution...
