If you're a REALTOR, you know stress. You are intimately involved with it. But what do you do when it grabs you in its talons and threatens to fly up, up, and away with you? The past few days have been stressful due to a few problematic transactions.

It was her father or her grandfather that was named Sylvester. I can’t remember which, but when she told me of the love she had for him, it was almost tangible. It was also a love so great that she had determined, from the age at which girls start to plan such things, that if she had a son, she w...
At church this morning, I watched a little girl, no more than three years old, walking down the aisle. She held her mother's hand, or more accurately, her mother clutched hers, and the curly haired little angel twisted and turned and danced her way down the aisle. She pretended to tap the pews wi...
There are lots of different buyers in the world of real estate but the common thread is that everyone wants to be able to get a deal when they buy a house. When a new buyer client calls who wants to buy a house that needs work, that’s usually code for that exact desire. But what do you, the buyer...

They also part...
I always recommend that my Buyer clients change the locks on the houses that they purchase after they own the home. You never know who had a copy of the key to the house, so if you want to have some increased peace of mind, change the lock.Then I heard about bump keys and now I’m not so sure abou...
The storm last night was fierce, much shorter than earlier predictions led us to believe, but still... fierce. I had finished a long day of work and joined one of my daughters for sushi at a favorite local restaurant. I watched the rain pummelling the ground, lashing and whipping about like a gna...
I've been working late hours this week. Crazy pace. Two night I've been out till about midnight, assisting my clients. And then in the midst of it, this was posted on my Facebook page, totally out of the blue, unsolicited: So, Ethan and I are buying our first house, yay! And I just have to take a...
