A rolling stone gathers no moss. I have observed, recently that people are moving more. Traveling, journeying, relocating. The words  Pilgrimage, Mission, Trek or Expedition roll of the tongue as easily as community, residence, long-term, family home. Which leads me to the question - if you could move anywhere in the world, and still sell Real Estate - where would it be? And that, my fellow Rainers, is the beauty of our training and licenses - the ability to transfer our knowledge to other countries, communities and neighborhoods. If you can Dream it....in 2011 - it seems, the sky is no longer the limit!

I felt a shiver of anticipation, gratitude and glory run down my spine last night as I strolled the boardwalk, along the shores of Lake Okanagan, admiring the fuchsia hues of the setting sun, watching the wildlife preparing for nightfall. A beaver chewed methodically on his willow twig, the carp gathered eagerly in the shallow water beneath my shadow, a heron watched earnestly for her midnight snack. A picturesque spring night, in a picturesque setting, in a picturescque city ... lately I have found myself humming jingles, choruses, and musical nursery rhymes. All signs of happiness and joy derived from living in a beautiful setting, amongst fascinating persons, alive with creativity, stimulation life and prosperity. We are truly blessed, to be living in this era of opportunity!

Mark Divine Class 170 honorman, SEAL Team 3, SDVT-1, NRST-1 The first US Navy SEAL teams were commissioned in 1962 and all the way up to present day. The Navy SEALs have distinguished themselves as an individually reliable, collectively disciplined and highly skilled maritime force. Prospective SEALs go through what is considered by many military experts to be the toughest training in the world in order to be accepted into Naval Special Warfare (NSW). Yesterday morning I had the absolute honor of listening to Commander Mark Divine (USNR) speak about the mental toughness that it is required to be one of the 20 left standing of the 200 plus men who started out in Navy Seal Training and how to apply that strategy in my business. Mark now runs SealFit.com  SEALFIT combines training for eli...

Over and over again I hear my clients tell me, "I would never have thought of moving the furniture around that way"  Proper furniture placement and balance may at first glance seem a complicated task, but all it really takes is some common sense and learning to look at your room in a new way.     View your space with the following guidelines and see how much fun you can have thinking "outside the box" Location of doorways: if there are 2 doors consider having the traffic pattern move behind the seating area, not through it.  Placement of major pieces of furniture:  If your sofa is placed off the wall, leave a min of 2.5 feet of walking space behind it.  A bit less space is needed between chairs and the sofa Seating arrangement:  If you have a long wall, establish your seating arrangemen...
