Adam Waldman was nice enough to ask me to do a super meme and when Adam speaks people listen!  So, I went to work on it and had it about 80% done when all of a sudden, it disappeared!  I hit the back button and it wasn't there, so here is a recreation of that post.  Adam, sorry for taking so long...

It's a paradox when you're a new agent; How can you get experience, if nobody will work with you because you don't have any experience!" What got me thinking about this was a post by LaNita Cates titled, "But Weren't You A New Agent Once Too?" where she broached the subject of agents telling the ...

I'll fess up, I have never sent a client to a credit repair company, but over the years I have worked with dozens, maybe hundreds of clients who I've helped to "repair" their credit.  This experience is the reason that I don't have a problem with credit repair companies. Recently I've read a coup...

Warning!:  This post is not going to be politically correct! I don't believe in "White Guilt". I don't believe in "Mortgage Bankers/Brokers Guilt" either.  The reason that I don't believe in "White Guilt" is because, as I've written about before, I believe that it's based upon the unfounded notio...

Until a couple of years ago, my largest loan to date was a direct referral from the second smallest loan that I had ever done.  The small loan was an older guy who was buying a small home to live in after his wife had passed away.  He wanted to be close to his kids and his kids lived in a lesser ...

As many of us in the business, I have a "favorite" service provider with just about all of the various services that are ancillary to the real estate world.  I have "My" guy who does my home inspections and "my" appraiser, etc.  When it comes to title services, I have Stephanie Forsythe with Comm...
