  Web Check-Up       In the old days - the corner "bricks and mortar" location was a huge advantage in building your real estate business. Today, the bricks of yesteryear are being traded for clicks in today's virtual business environment. Chris Pollinger will be doing a web-check up to talk abo...

Sell the skills you have, not your service.  I see so many agents convey the great services they offer; only they fail to recognize most agents offer the same service.  Rather than sell your services, try selling "your skills."  In an industry where being unique is very difficult, sometimes expen...
"Learn to say ‘No' to the good so you can say ‘Yes' to the best"   Remember Nancy Regan's "Just say no" campaign that ran in the 90's? It seems her advice is as relevant to the agenda items that want to crowd your schedule as to drugs.  We are faced with an unending and on-going influx of decisio...

I have read stories from those that suffered great atrocities at the hands of captors in POW or concentration camps and the reason one person made it and another succumbed was a matter of hope. Hope that...
I've had one of those weeks - you know the type of weeks, one that is filled with more promise than delvery. One where the mountains seem just a bit larger than normal.
