I joined the Board today. Yeah, 5 months* after I re-activated my license, I managed to get my butt down to the Board of Realtors and fork over my $407. Here's how it went. I filled out my application. I signed it. I wrote a check for $407. I handed it to the nice lady behind the welcome desk. Sh...

To celebrate the release of my book, my fabulous ad agency (that would be Inna & Co) has been hard at work this week designing killer Active Rain ads for me and my soulful stuff! They tell me there are FIVE of them floating around Active Rain tonight, all promoting different Sell with Soul produc...

As a self-professed introvert (and proud of it), articles about the introvert experience frequently catch my eye. Unfortunately, so many of them center around "curing" introversion or "overcoming" introversion or "succeeding in spite of" introversion, especially when the topic in question is a ca...

It's funny how we human beings think. If we're told by an "expert" to do something a certain way... and we do it... and it doesn't work for us, what do we do? Try something else? Nope. We do "it" (whatever "it" is) MORE. For example, let's say your doctor tells you that in order to lose weight; y...

Sorry for the short notice, but if you have an hour or so this morning to listen to me and Borino discuss the ins & outs of building an SOI business and getting a steady stream of referrals (without annoying anyone), we'll be On the Air (okay, on the phone line) at 9am Pacific. That means: 9:00am...

I recently had a listing expire after three months on the market. Nothing has sold in my client's neighborhood for almost a year, so it wasn't a big surprise. We gave it a shot and it didn't work out for us. No biggie. She was prepared for the possibility and has no hard feelings toward me. But t...

It's been a big week for JA here on Active Rain! I just passed 100,000 points, I was mentioned in three featured blogs (here and here and here) and moved up to #12 in the Active Rain Popularity Contest (a la the most-subscribed blogs). Oh, and my manager says my website hits have gone thru the ro...

During the now-becoming-infamous Real Estate Radio USA interview earlier this week, I made the comment "I'm the Best Listing Agent I Know." Arrogant, eh? Not really. It's not as if I said "I'm the prettiest girl I know" or "I'm the smartest girl I know." It's more along the lines of "I'm the hard...
