The Art of Giving - Circle of Giving and Connection--is giving a natural state or is it something that is learned through experience and the spiritual evolution of the individual? How many times have you been disappointed when something you did in a "giving" way was not received or acknowledged. I think that we can say that we have all been there and had that experience. Giving without expectations opens up new opportunity in many ways. The rather excellent thing about selfless "giving" is that it is with no expectations. When this is accomplished, the energy that is created enters that field where good intention lives and transforms itself. It builds and multiplies as other selfless "giving" energy emerges and continues to be transformed and distributed in the field. The result is that...

Below we outlined some of the reason you may want to consider short selling your home vs letting go into foreclosure. A homeowner who successfully negotiates and closes a short sale will be eligible for a Fannie Mae-backed mortgage after only 2 years! Redding CA Short Sales make up over 30% of our current MLS inventory. The above also applies to an investor who successfully negotiates a short sale with his/her mortgage servicer. As to your credit score - only late payments on mortgage will show, and after sale, the mortgage is normally reported as 'paid as agreed', 'paid as negotiated', or 'settled'. This can lower the score as little as 50 points if all other payments are being made. A short sale's effect can be as brief as 12 to 18 months. A short sale is not reported on a credit hist...

High in the sky and singing for all, come take me to places new and old, places calling to me. I like the Train Whistle calling. Calling me to new places and new things.

Trust has always been a driving force in our business beginning in 1978.  Our primary client, at the time, was a design build/architect and we thoroughly enjoyed creating his designs.  As our business grew we began to take on our own private clients. In the second and third years several of these clients had previous negative experiences with contractors. This added another dynamic to each project that required extra attention throughout the job.  It has been challenging, yet fulfilling to walk with clients working to trust again. One of our clients was particularly challenged in this area.  They ultimately shared their breakthrough and appreciation with tears at the end of the project. In the 1980's I shared our approach to trusting others until they prove otherwise, with one of our a ...

It is Saturday and all is as it should be--today is a day for doing some house keeping for my business, ActiveRain and at home. It is a good thing when we can manage to keep it all rolling along and feel like we are in balance. I don't like it when things go sideways and it feels like life is in a sideways slip toward the precipice. I do feel like that now and again when this thing called "real estate" or is it "life" comes along and takes charge and throws balance out the window. There is some "Natural Law" that prevents real estate from being a "steady pace' of schedules adhering to "time blocking" and that perfectly ordered day or so it seems at times. Good Days--I so love when the day flows and your "day timer schedule" runs through to have all items checked off and there comes a be...

This is a story about Connection. It is a story about connections that form a circle of fulfillment and validation. It is about many people and many things coming together to create new and wonderful opportunity. I love this....! It is about people that are "giving" in the very nature of who they are: It is about Kerrie Greenhalgh here in ActiveRain and how her Contests are changing the field and helping us grow. It is about Ross Domke, and how he is giving in nature in his efforts to help his agents. It is about a new group here in the RAIN. It is about my friends and good people here in the RAIN that want to explore and learn new things. It is about the book The Go-Givers and applying the principals of the book. It is about the Authors of the Book, John David Mann and Bob Burg who wal...
