2011 is in full swing.  Yes, we're over half way through the very first month of the year.  If you didn't spend your 2010 4th quarter prospecting and you did spend it doing nothing but drinking egg nog and being full of the holiday spirit (nothing wrong with this), then we'll see you in the summe...

As a Realtor I have dealt with my share of short sales.  I have represented both buyers and sellers in numerous short sale transactions, however it doesn't get any easier to swallow, for me.  I am a mother and I am a Realtor and I think both require an unbelievable amount of patience.  I try to e...

I was told a statistic yesterday that shocked me.   I couldn't believe it because to me I work the hardest in the 4th quarter of the year.  Buyers and sellers seem to have the most objections during this time and so I find my work a little more strenuous, as if it is not already.  Apparently 95% ...

I consider real estate growth much like childhood to adult growth.  We all start small not knowing what to expect, but we have good parents (hopefully) who show us and teach us the things we don't know.  As we get older we mature (hopefully,  again) and start making our own decisions because we k...

I can not think of a time where full disclosure is not necessary.  Agents when you do not fully disclose who you are, who you represent, any problems or concerns with a client or a home you walk a very fine line.  I think we all know this, but you wouldn't believe the amount of agents out there o...
