This is an incredible story.  Since customer service is something I still hold in high regard, I couldn't wait to share with you what happened to my team member Carol.  Carol loves to shop online.  One of her favorite sites is Zappos.com.  Recently she bought some shoes that turned out to be a different size than what was stated on the box.  She called Zappos - no big deal, a new pair was on it's way overnight - and she was asked to return the wrong sized shoes within two weeks to avoid additional charge & refund transactions.  Needless to say, Carol didn't quite make the two week deadline and the day after she had shipped them back, Zappos sent an email gently reminding her to return the shoes.  Carol responded that they had been sent the day before and apologized for the delay.  She w...

Even though we don't have much of a fall - there is still a big sigh of relief when our daytime temperatures get down into the 80's.  It's downright cool at night with the 70's! And with our fall-like weather, thoughts turn to pumpkins.  Pumpkins in Texas.  They can take on a different look here in the Lone Star State - what do you think?

Are you stretching yourself enough?  Just like daily exercise goes hand in hand with stretching your body, daily blogging requires you to stretch too.  Are you writing on the same topics over and over?  Are you going to your old standbys, like statistical data, because it doesn't require a lot of creative content?  Or do you write on current events, hot topics or whatever gets those creative juices flowing?  Stretch yourself - my "little" kitty Tiger is leading the way.  And it looks good!

This is a challenging time to be a Realtor.  Home sales are fluctuating.  Listings are plentiful, while buyers are elusive.  And there doesn't really appear to be a solution around the corner.  But if I go along with the "that which you survive makes you tougher" philosophy - I know I'll make it through this period in time & I'll even be a better Realtor for it.  Next week I am fortunate enough to be able to attend the 2010 Mega Agent Camp for Keller Williams in Austin, Texas.  I look forward to hearing what words of wisdom Gary Keller has for our profession.  I was able to secure a copy of KW Market Navigator in advance.  Gary Keller encourages us to use this book as a map or compass for not only surviving but thriving in today's conditions. It's raining today here in Atascocita, with ...

One of my team members wanted to update the mirrors in her bathrooms but really didn't want the labor of removing the 8 foot mirror from the wall.  Plus she wasn't sure exactly what she'd find under the mirror & how much work it would take to repair the sheetrock.  Unable to decide on a plan of action, she went to look for ideas on the internet.  And she found MirrorMate Frames.  And this turned out to be an easy & beautiful fix for her mirrors.  The steps were simple.  Measure the mirror, including the amount of space around it.  Select your frame style & color.  If you need flat clips to swap out for your chunky plastic clips - no problem, it's included in the kit.  She even found an online coupon code for free shipping!  The frames were shipped to her door.  The assembly began with w...
