A Fish Story is Only a Fish Story Unless You Have Proof! Or Enough to Open a FISH MARKET!  We woke up at 4:00 a.m to load everything and head to the lake - Otter Creek Reservoir actually. Ready to go at 5:00 a.m. and arrived at the lake at 7:30 a.m. anxious to get on the lake! We rigged the poles with power bait  and BAM! BAM! BAM!, the fish were completely ignoring the worms...strange, huh?! Well, needless to say, we caught our limit, headed for shore to clean and pack the fish on ice. The park ranger met us at the cleaning station and we began talking about our catch for the day... She informed us we could have caught 8 more! Ahhh, the endless possibilities when it comes to fishing! I am looking sooooforward to our next fishing trip...perhaps even next weekend and/or the next!

We are headed for one of our favorite fishing spots...Otter Creek Reservoir, located just outside of Circleville, Utah and before Antimony! We hope to fish all day and catch our limit and if not...then at least we'll enjoy the day! Oh and if you need to reach me, call me on Monday... There is no phone service on the lake!

A fellow realtor suggested using single page address websites for listings due to their affordability and to impress sellers. I am always looking for better and more creative ways to reach further into the market regarding advertising. Are they effective or a waste of marketing dollars? I appreciate your input!       Wanda Kubat-NerdinREALTOR, CSP, e-PRO, CNEWindermere Real Estate So.1173 South 250 WestBuilding 2, Suite 503St. George, UT 84770435.632.9374 Cell435.628.0860 Faximsellingsouthernutah@q.com

Have you had a "When Pigs Fly!" moment? I started thinking about the phrase "When Pigs Fly!" as I was taking pictures of the 7 piglets and began to wonder about its origin. I looked it up on Wikipedia; a great encyclopedic online source for answers to questions. A flying pig is a metaphor for an impossibility or an event that will never come to pass, often with the implication something will be disatrous [that it will be impossible to do. It is used in popular sayings "[it] will happen when pigs fly" or pigs will fly or "when pigs have wings". There have been times in my real estate career, especially when first starting out that I had serious doubts regarding my abilities. Then I began taking classes, meeting agents, putting processes into place, then sold a house and everything chang...

The excitement of CATCHING A FISH!, for me is pretty close to that feeling of getting a well-priced listing or a qualified buyer! My pulse races, I get light headed, my mood elevates and I feel that I have been rewarded! Yahoo! How do you keep that excitement in-between buyers and sellers?! I am constantly "fishing" through my SOI, e-mail blasts, farming communities where I have listings, attending luncheons & seminars, being face-to-face with the community, volunteering time to worthy causes, talking to past clients and asking for referrals.                                   .                                   .                                   . Fish Lake is the largest natural mountain lake in Utah. It is on the Fish Lake Plateau and the elevation is 8,843 feet, located in central ...

Thank you Dad for loving my mother. Thank you for marrying my mother even though she had 7 children, none of them your own. My step-father was 21 and my mother 31. They met and according to my mother, she only had "3 children". She was afraid that she would scare him away if she told him she had 7 children. He came to our house to meet the "3 children", the rest of us were in a back bedroom and we were told not to come out for any reason! We were curious and soon we started trailing out to get a look at this visitor...well, even after he met the rest of us, he decided to stay. They married and a year later, my little sister was born! Thank you for taking us away from the poverty-stricken life we knew. We were living in Georgia at the time and we were desperately poor with no hope for i...

I said, "Yes I can!" and I did. My clients e-mailed me asking if I could help find temporary housing for them until we found them a home. I said "Yes, I can!" and I did, instead handing it off to a leasing company.  I have even babysat for my clients! I knew their wedding anniversary was coming up and they were new to the area. The 4-year old and I found a common bond...we both Love Pigs! So I offered to watch their two children while they went out to dinner and enjoyed a few alone hours together. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Do You?   Do you encourage others to "put their best foot forward?" by stepping forward and doing your best?....I took this picture of one of 7 piglets who were born just 4 weeks ago to Miss Prissy and Bacon. They are all so very cute and will approach as long as long as I become smaller by sitting down, closer to the ground to their level.

This is a yellow Ice Plant. The flowers almost remind me of sea anemones. I LOOOOOOVE Hollyhocks! I have seen them in white, pink, yellow, red, orange, lavender, purple in both pale and vibrantly rich colors. And then there are Lillies!!! Mother Nature offers such beauty and perfection in the many gifts that she gives us time and time again!

She Signed With Another Listing Agent...And Now She Wants To Be Friends?! I went on an appointment last week and connected with the owner of the home to be listed. We seemed to have many things in common regarding the love of animals and similar personality styles. She interviewed 3 agents to compete for the listing. She chose another company but sincerely told me she truly appreciated the information that I presented. I thanked her for the opportunity and wished her well, therefore ending the conversation. She e-mailed me saying..."I would really enjoy keeping communications open with you regarding the "animal" thing." She wants to be friends! Is it unethical for me to contact this woman since the only reason we came together was real estate? She will be signing contracts with another ...

I am addicted to the learning process. I currently have 3 designations and am working on 3 more simultaneously. Let's just say that I had 89 credits over the course of the last 2 years. I JUST WANT TO BE THE BEST AGENT THAT I CAN POSSIBLY BE! That doesn't count the many, many hours spent here on Activerain, in one hour seminars, going to Chamber luncheons, Sales Meetings, reading amazing books such as: "The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, The Little Red Book of Sales Answers, The 5 Laws that Determine All Of Life's Outcomes, I can go on and on... I am still attempting to find my place here on Activerain and more than anything, I want to make a positive difference and be a driving force for my community here and in Southern Utah. I can't do it alone and ask for your help, so I hope you d...
