Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Memphis East
I had the most unpleasant experience I have ever had shopping today.  Maybe I over reacted but I really don't think so.  I walked into a Memphis (I'll be courteous and remove their name since they called an apologized) department store and shopped for about 30 minutes.  Had two items in my buggy ...
I purchased my home two years ago.  I thought it was a really nice home for the money though it was not decorated to my taste. I told myself that I would have it decorated and vying for "most beautiful home" in no time. Now two years later, my HGTV (I can tackle anything) motivation is waining, a...

Like many realtors I spent my Sunday afternoon hosting an open house just outside Memphis today.  The weather was sunny.  It was a glorious day and NO ONE walked through the door.  Advertising?  Yes.  Signs from the main highway?  Yes.  On-line advertising?  Yes. Flyers to the neighborhood?  Yes....
When I began my career in real estate, I came into the profession wearing those lovely "rose-colored" glasses that all newbies wear when they think they've got the world by the tail.  Unfortunately, those glasses got really dirty, really quickly.  As a real estate professional, there are so many ...
The media is constantly spouting the "downturned" housing market and how bad things are.  I am sure some areas are worse than others.  My market is not totally downturned but it has definitely slowed. A downturned market really depends on which side of the fence one is standing.  From a sellers s...
As Realtors, we sometimes forget just how unknowledgeable first-time homebuyers are in the entire process.  I recently helped a young couple in their early 20's purchase their first home.  We have to treat these clients like they know nothing and explain, explain, explain.  The lack of knowledge ...
