Wow...last week, I was talking with people who were seriously considering getting out of the real estate business.  You see it was only 3 weeks ago that mortgage rates were awesome.  They were quite stimulating for the economy....a reprieve, if you will in the bastion of negative real estate news...
Whe, wa, wa.....!  Winers, baby's, thumbsuckers and just a lot of whining.  I can't stand it...but as much as I can't stand whining and complaining....I just hate the phrase....I CAN'T!  I hate it....This is a difficult market.  I've been a real estate attorney and a mortgage banker for 14 years....
OK....so here it is.  I've written over 200 blogs on AR.  Some I've just whipped up as a free association thought and I've gotten over 40 comments.  I've also put a lot of thought and research into a certain post and got a big zero as far as comments.  I was an English major and YES I DO LOVE TO ...
How are you all doing with your New Year's Resolutions?  I have been so excited to attack this year more than this year.  How are you doing.  I've only set a few goals, trying to make this a realistic approach in order to assure a myriad of successes this year.  I don't need a million goals, just...
This market is insane.  Bond prices got rocked today.  The rates shot up....AGAIN!!!!  That's all that has been happening receintly.  Bernanke, last week, said that our economy sucks, but we have worries of inflation.  So our stock market drops, but the rates go up!  When the stock market goes up...
I potentially lost a deal tonight because of false terms that were given by a competitor.  I don't mind losing going head to head.  Let's compare apples to apples or oranges to oranges.                              Anyway, the competition gave a rate that I know is impossible to give.  The rate w...
Proverbs 17:28 Says exactly that thought.  Supposedly the smartest man who ever lived was King Solomon.  The SMARTEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED SAID EVEN A FOOL IS WISE IF HE CAN SHUT HIS TRAP! How much more in AR?  In real estate. Growing up, I was pretty much God's gift to God.  He was pretty dang luc...
Most of you know that I'm married with 5 kids.  As a result, I'm an alcholic, serious drug user and in constant therapy.  Just kidding of course.  Yes, I do have 5 kids.  I have a great wife and I know that I am living proof that God has blessed me greatly.  However, after 10 years of marriage, I...
I live 20 miles east of DeKalb Illinois.  I attended Northern Illinois University Law School.  I contacted two friends of mine who are teachers there.  I offered my sypathies and prayers for them as they deal with the aftermath of some idiot who chose to go on a random or non-random killing spree...
Gotta tell you when I was growing up I had a great family and a great life.  I went to college and spent 5 and 1/2 years graduating from a 4 year undergraduate school.  I found and accepted Christ into my life and "grew up" so to speak.  I went on and got a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology ...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
