Has anyone ever equated real estate to Gambling? There is a lot of stink about gambling! Even where it is legal, is it morale or not? Does God really mind? Is it really all that different from a church raffle? I once saw my husand bid on a cake at a Cub Scout Cake Contest. Every year, the Cub Sco...

Remember that old song, "Should I stay or should I go?" It keeps playing in my head. Like a  lot of real estate agents and/or every other professional in any way linked to real estate, I've been wondering if this is the time to bow out, atleast for a while. On my way into the office for a meeting...

This is by far the most, well... for lack of a better word, interesting market that I have ever experienced in Real Estate. And, I've been playing in this Garner, NC sandbox for ten years now. I've not met anyone who has anything real (substantial, sure, actually going to close anytime soon) in a...

Does anyone else happen to think that the government is getting way too involved in bailing us out, let alone doing it improperly? With any handout, there is sure to come a lot of rules, laws, etc that we may or may not want. What ever happened to telling someone "No!" if they just could not affo...

Evidently unlike most Realtors, I like working with people I know. Ask any agent about working with people they know, their current neighbors and friends, and they normally start right off by saying how sticky it can be. Some will go so far as to say they simply won't do it. That they'd rather re...

I just read an article on the past time of part time real estate. It was a well written article but got me really thinking. I see the point the writer was making, I just disagree with it in some cases. To suggest that an agent can not be as professional, or as successful, just because they are pa...

It's raining today. It rained yesterday and it will rain, almost the entire day tomorrow, too. Is that a bad thing or a good thing? Well, I think it is all in how you look at it. I think it is all in the twist you put on it. What good will it do you to dwell on the negative? I can't walk the dog....

Everyone I know this year, including Santa, is broke. Times are tighter, across the board, as I have ever seen them. It's not just slimmer for those in the real estate industry, nor for just the businesses directly affected by real estate like banking, finance, building, etc. It's everyone. All o...

My clients often ask me, "So how did you happen to get into Real Estate?" Well, I briefly explain to them how I was raised in a military family, have been the new kid on the block...on more blocks than I can even remember, and that it was just a natural progression. I have two college degrees. Th...

First, just let me say, "Happy Veteran's Day" to all of the men and women who have served, as well as those who are still serving this great nation.  Although it just does not seem to be enough, I'd also like to say, "Thank you" to them, but also to their familes who are serving in thier own spec...
