We have a whole new week ahead of us. I expect to handle some obligations, delve into some opportunities, and also work through the regular drudgery stuff.  It's all part of the package when working in real estate. With any luck, I will be able to eat lunch most days next week, but that is about...

This stuff seems to run in packs.  And out of the blue on Easter Sunday Morning, I find spam in my basket.  A basket full, in diffferent accounts, at that.  Including these two from "acquaintances," which makes me linger for a nanosecond longer. The FBI has a tasty little attachment for me, zipp...

How to connect two beautiful parks when a 6 lane freeway separates them? In 2007, Cary NC did it with the lovely Pedestrian Bridge over US 1/64. US1/64 carries over 80,000 cars daily, so it was not an easy installation, particularly as it was done in concert with widening of both sides of the hi...

A new camera?  Possibly a DSLR?       It is unfortunate, as my point and shooter, a Kodak P880, has a lot of features I have hardly learned to use. My favorite feature is the 24-140 zoom lens.   That wide angle has been great help in real estate photo shoots. But, it is a 2005 model, and there h...

A new agent asked me, "Isn't it tough for buyers to pay for inspections on multiple homes until they find one that works out?  What can I do?" Me:  "That is why they are hiring you, to help protect them, to help them avoid shelling out all their war chest on Home Inspections.  And to help them n...

Are your QR Codes just too dense to work?  If so, you are wasting time, and worse, you are frustrating consumers who may be trying to scan them.  A dysfunctional QR Code is comparable to having a broken link on your website.  And we all know how frustrating and embarrassing that is.   This QR Cod...

I walked into DJs Berry Patch this afternoon and asked, "Are these berries from Florida, Mexico, or California."  They laughed.  I laughed.  And I walked out with a bucket of mighty fine sweet strawberry eating.     DJs Berry Patch is located at 1223 Salem Church Road, Apex NC 27523.  You can se...

We have so many trees down in Wake County due to the extreme tornadoes Saturday. Obviously, fallen trees must be cleared from roadways, homes, or vehicles, and other fallen trees must be cut up and removed. I imagine that chainsaw sales are robust right now, as there is so much work to do. And t...
