I was musing a few weeks back that it would be great if I could figure out how to use my Blackberry and I mentioned that they must have a book or a class or something. Well, just for the halibut I had my assistant goole for it, and bam! They printed a book called "Blackberry For Dummies"! I could...

Yesterday started bad and became worse. I lost 5 listings in one day, a new personal best!! One was owned by 2 brothers and since my one year anniversary was up, one brother wanted me but the other wanted fresh blood. One bought a home with her boyfriend (he had his own agent) and left me their h...

There is no place like home, wherever that happens to be! Don't get me wrong, I love vacation but it also is a lot of work, especially with family vacations. Where to stay, where to eat, what time to meet, who wants to go where, it all becomes tiresome. It is also a lot of work to pack and go, an...

What is it about this business that makes everyone have a chip on their shoulder and an attitude to match?

As I sat in my open house last Sunday for 2 hours, all by myself, I got the impression that open houses are going the way of real estate house publications and mls books. Is it possible that today's buyer doesn't need to spend Sunday afternoon driving around and looking at homes? I think all the ...

Went to a birthday party over the weekend for a 10 year old and there was a group of 6 kids, all around 10, huddled in the corner playing video games. I watched for a little while, and it kind of looked fun so I tried it. I needed a 5 year old to show me how to turn the game on and select one to ...

Don't you love it when a plan finally comes together? I got a new Blackberry a few months ago, and all I could do with it was answer the phone! Everyone was impressed because I looked successful but little did they know I couldn't do anything with it. I had such big plans for it but I didn't know...

I was at Walmart the other day and they lady in front of me had about 10 random items, from food to car parts, and they made her show ID to check out, and she used cash. I was a little confused so I asked her what she was buying that she needed ID for, or was it because she used cash and they are...

It seemed like a good idea, and I have had a few people contact me about "stages" so I thought I might try it with my new listing. It started a little confusing because I didn't know if I should buy a stage or build one. I am kind of handy so I could build one with some 2 x 4's and stuff, but it ...

The reason. I have an agent that started out strong with a few friends that wanted to sell and buy, so it was great for her. I worked with this agent through all these deals, holding her hand, answering her questions. Then I didn't see her for a while. She said she was busy with family, and she h...
