The other day I was going to respond to someone who commented on my blog post. When I looged on from my phone since I wasn't at home I was taken by surprised. Usually it would look like the same as my computer, but since AR has been going through there changes it looks like they made the mobile settings change as well and it is so much eaiser!! The AR gods are always thinking ahead and I must say they are doing a fanastic job. I wish I could give you a snap shot of what it looked like, but haven't figured that part out yet. But when you get the chance log on from your moblie, you may be surprised yourself. Jeannette Neerpat9000 Sheridan StreetPembroke Pines, Fl 33024www.Neerpat.com Would you like a Free Market Analysis?

 As many of you know that most of my blogs are Localism based post. I direct all of them to my market area. And to tell you the truth I was really surprised this weekend. We al think that maybe our blogs may or may not be getting to the locals, and sometimes we let things slip through our blogs that we shouldn't. I wrote a post a year ago about a local carnival that comes around every year the weekend of Valentine's and you wouldn't believe the respond and calls and emails I have been getting since last week because of that post. And do you know what type of crowd I was getting? Teenagers! That's right they were searching about info for the fair and it landed them HERE, the pace that has the best google juice. I got calls about pricing, which at the time I didn't know but promised them ...

I did this on Facebook today. I entered in my birthday and this is what I got. I was really surprised because I think it suits me to a tee. If you are on facebook do this and see what it says about you. My Birthday is Dec 15 Birthday Meaning You are outgoing and love to be at the center of attention. From the outside, you may seem flashy, flirty, and tricky but your true self is strong, full of hope to be the leader. When you fail to convince someone, you will get frustrated, and perhaps let your temper shows. Your Love, You are emotional. Many can win your heart at once, but not for long. This is why you hardly win a decent relationship. My Strengths Optimistic, brilliantly sociable and motivated to win the best in life. My Weaknesses Unrealistic, stubborn and reluctant to confront pro...

I like to read the paper. Lots of useful information. As we all know that the buyers are now starting to jump ship and started buying. Well in todays paper the headlines showed: In the market for a home? It might be easier than you think! "I had gotten the impression from watching the news that I was going to have to wait five years to save up enough to put down on a house," Page said. "But it sounds like I could buy in the next six months. That's something I hadn't considered." Many home buyers are applying for Federal Housing Administration mortgages, which require down payments of 3.5 percent of the purchase price. On a $150,000 property, that's $5,250.Effective Jan. 1, in Palm Beach and Broward counties, FHA loans are limited to homes that cost up to $345,000, a reduction from $423,...

OK I am meeting with the Mayor of Tamarac next week. I am looking forward to it. Out of the blue I sent her an emai, I wasn't sure whether she would repsond. Not only did she respond, but she called me! That's right she called me and said she would be honored to speak with me, and was glad that I thought of her. So I am making a list of 10 questions, I wasn't ready with them when she called since it took me off guard. So I started on it today. I wanted to have very good questons, nothing cheesey. So look for a blog post with the Mayor, it may also be a video, still thinking about that one. You all know how much I like doing those. So it may just be one!!   You have any questions you would like to ask the Mayor? Leave them here and I will add it to the list!

When I started blogging here on the rain I really didn't expect to build the relationships I have. I don't think many of us had those intentions. But after reading and commenting and then finally taking the steps from just being on the computer to meeting in person. Some of us have met for dinner, have met at the BarCamps, or have went on a weekend get away. But whatever out intentions were we have built lasting friendships, sisterhoods, and brotherhoods. A couple of months ago I came here on the Rain looking to see if anyone would be able to send me fall leaves. I was trying to teach my children about the changing of the seasons, since we really only see 2. Well one person came in and did a FANASTIC job with this projuect. Not only did it help me, but it gave her kids a fun scavnger hu...

OK I had a great weekend. I met with 3 different buyers. We are not just talking about buyers you are just browsing through. I am talking about buyers ready to put in contracts. They just need the right home. First buyer was in the Tamarac, Coral Springs for: Town home or condo. And by the looks of it, we may already have found the one they were looking for. Just will look at two more tom. Second buyer called me off my listing in Miami. Very nice couple and was very pleased with the home. He tried to get  a hold of his mortgage broker, but was unable to. He is calling him today so we can put a contract on that one. Third buyer was for the Weston area. They too were looking for Town-homes or Condo. Wife fell in love with one. We will be going out tom morning to look at three more, if she...

Well its tax time, and before you know it April 15 will be here. It's amazing how time flies! Do you have all your papers together? Here are some tips to get you going in things you may not have known about.   1. Economic stimulus payment. You may have received an economic stimulus payment in 2008, based on your 2007 taxes. If so, don’t include it as income on your tax return. It’s not taxable. If you didn’t receive a payment, you may be eligible for the recovery rebate credit, as explained below. You may even qualify for that credit if you did receive an economic stimulus payment. 2. Standard deduction increased by real estate taxes. Suppose you own a home and pay real estate taxes but don’t have enough total deductions to be able to itemize. Good news: You can increase your standard d...

Have you ever gone back to take a look at your first star? Have you notice the difference in your writing from then to now? Now with the new team blogs (I was invitied to write for Club Chaos) I was going back to take a look at some of my blog post. It made me think of who my target audience was at the time. It seems my audience was here on the Rain to other agents. I guess I wasn't using ActiveRain to its fullest potential! I remember reading an article about personal photos. You know you are taught to remove all family pictures so the new buyers can place themselves in the home instead of looking at the current homeowners. When I wrote this post I was not expecting the respond I got. So take a look at my first star, then go back and take a look at yours. Has your writing changed? And ...

Have you ever been on a roll where the thoughts to blog coming like second nature? Then all of a sudden, bam you are stuck with the slightest idea on what to write. Who are we to target? Do I continue  to target my market? Do I target services in my market? All want about to the Realtors to network with? Either way I have come up dry? So I have noticed my stats going down. But at the same time I have noticed my phone ringing. Buyers are contacting me. They are finding me here on the rain. So  my slump needs to end. I need to be able to reach the buyers and sellers of my area. I want to be able to see my google juice clime again, but my mind draws a blank every time I try to post something. So I am looking for help. I need ideas! I don't want to write about the same things over and over ...

OK one of the things we do is network. And network with all types of people. In our Roldex we should at our fingertips bwe able to pull out people we need in certain times. Now I have at this time a great: Insurance Agent Inspector A Handyman Mortgage Rep Now what I am looking for a Landscaper. you would think I would be able to find them, since there are a dime a dozen. But yet still no luck. So I am asking for some major help inthis area. Any South Florida Agents have a good landscaper that you work with, that without a doubt refer them over. That would be a plus! Looking forward to either hearing from you or leaving a comment here. And if you are a landscaper, please I would love to talk with you!

Yeah I did it! I got it done! Man that prep was horrible, but was very necessary. I had to force myself to drink all that stuff. Well AR I finally did my Colonoscopy and Endoscopy done today. I was very nervous, but at the same time very happy that this day was here finally! It went very well and quick. It turns out that I have Gastritis and Diverticulitis. OK so now I know what my problem is now what the Dr. says I need to do is change my diet. Stay away from fatty foods, fried foods, caffenine ( man I am going to miss my Coke and Coffee!) But I have to do what is going to make me feel better!! So now you all have been updated and thank you all for your concerns!!!

OK as many of you know last month I was hospitalized with severe abdominal pain. I was to get several test done, but because it was the holidays, they had put it off. I didn't want to stay in the hospital and miss Christmas with my kids. So I was discharged. I was not 100%, but felt much better than when I got in. I had been feeling much better and was waiting to meet with the GI doctor. The appointment was set for Jan 22. But on Friday I woke up with the severe pains again and could not move. Making matters worse, all 3 of my kids are sick with the flu. Now was not a time to be getting this pain. I called my husband and told him it was starting again. I was able to get an appointment with the GI doctor that day and my husband rushed home to take me. He didn't want me driving by myself ...

About 2 months ago there was an incident at a local high school here in Broward County. A student was shot on campus and unfortunately died. There was some speculation that some students had mention that a student was carrying a weapon. Not sure what ever came of it. But now Broward County has now started a tip line through TXT messages. These tips can be sent anonymously, if they wanted to. I think its great that Broward County has adapted to technology and has given the students a way to inform personnel without feeling ridiculed by there peers. Here is a caption from todays paper stating so. Broward County
