One hundred and three years ago, the National Association of REALTORS adopted the Code of Ethics. This living document has been modified over the years to incorporate new elements in society, in our industry, in the way we communicate. But like the beginning words, “Under all is the land,” under ...
Heading off on my first showing today, I was multitasking as usual. Calling ahead to make sure my clients and I had our timing in sync, I noticed the car beside me at the light. I found it odd that we both kept pace when the light turned green. More than once, I've had people comment on my predis...
I posted yesterday about loving the rain. But loving the wind? Not so much. A text arrived from one of my seller clients this morning.“Your sign is gone.”Sheesh. Of course, it might mean I’ve inadvertently got a new property on the market somewhere right now, but it’s not going to help advertise ...

The site, known as Hagley, is a great example not only of early American industry, but of an environment where a business owner was able to succeed while taking great ca...
Early on in my career, I had a selling partner who mentored me. I had asked him to assist me with a listing appointment, so I previewed the property for our strategy and pricing session. Excited about the house, I returned to the office. “What kind of house is it?” he asked. “Well, the entrance i...
For the first night in a long time, I got home from work before it was dark outside. My daughter, home from college for spring break, got busy in the kitchen making dinner, so I set out to deliver the newsletters to the neighbors. I’m a block captain, so periodically, I deliver about a dozen news...
