Ringing and Singing in the Rain - Bruce Walter This week for the second time I got the pleasure to speak to another ActiveRain member being Bruce Walter. Sharon & Bruce Walter are a Team who covers the West Lafayette IN area and they work for Keller Williams Realty Lafayette IN. I have been reading Bruce’s posts on Active Rain for sometime.

He also coached several teams and taught Drivers Education. Drivers Education is up my alley as I was a Student Aid in High School. The Coach’s  always stuck me in the cars with the worst drivers and let me teach how to parallel park. Bruce told me during the scho...

 Does your Lafayette, Indiana lender answer their phone after 5 PM, or on weekends? In the fast paced world of real estate how many times do real estate agents need a lender to adjust the price down on a pre-qualification letter for their buyer as they are writing an offer at 9 PM at night so their buyer is not put at a disadvantage?Most of the national banks and many of our Lafayette brick and mortar lenders DO NOT, and the letter may state in indelible ink they are preapporved up to $200,000 even though your buyer is offering $180,000 on a home listed at $184,900.   Hmmmm, I wonder what that seller is going to think when they see that set in stone, pre-qualification letter for $200,000 from the inflexible and unavailable lenders who do business that way??? WANTED:  LAFAYETTE Lender wh...

Detained by the Police for DWR:  DRIVING WHILE a REALTOR® It was a quiet Sunday afternoon and I was dozing off on the sofa after an eventful drive through an upscale  neighborhood on a private drive in rural Lafayette, Indiana after viewing surrounding homes for a possible upcoming listing.  I was half expecting the firm and purposeful knock on the door-no it wasn't the neighborhood canvas of out-of-town professional fundraisers wanting you to support their cause-as that was yesterday!!!  When I opened the door, sure enough there was the police-a deputy sheriff to be exact.!  I knew what his first question would be, as I stood on the front porch being detained from my Sunday afternoon nap:   "Do you own a RED TRUCK?"                                                                       ...
