Greetings from the Raleigh/Cary area. Today I want to tell you about one of my favorite summer activities. This saturday is the start of the NC Symphony's Summerfest Series at Koka Booth Ampitheater here in Cary. It is an opportunity to hear a terrific symphony in a very beautful natural setting....
I am sitting downtown outside my favorite coffee shop as I type this. Today I want to talk about the new ampitheatre that is going to open in two weeks just a couple of blocks away. This is the newest outdoor venue in the triangle and it promises to be one of the neatest. The ampitheater is part ...
As a broker I have certainly done a number of open houses over the years. I have found them to be a very inefficient use of time and an ineffective marketing tool. The problem is, I may be wrong. I have been thinking more about this tool lately due to the increased implementation of the internet ...
Where is that groundhog fellow. We need to talk. It is about 30 degrees with 40 to 50mph winds today in the triangle. I am pretty sure I just saw a pine tree go flying by my office window. Thats okay, I dont like my neighbor that much anyway. Just kidding Jim. I actually like them alot. They are ...

Both numbers are extremely significant. The sales increase coupled with lessened new constructi...
In my ongoing endeavour to be different but mostly wierd I will be cooking a 22lb turkey in a trashcan this thanksgiving. No this is not some southern version of Americas Funniest Videos. It is an actual recipe that i first tried about 4 years ago. It is not deep frying, oven roasting or rotisser...
I attended a seminar today put on by a realtor association/vendor regarding the use of social networking and technology in the real estate business. It is astonishing to think how this business has changed in just a few short years. There was a time when we were told to mail postcards, send refig...
Fear is a powerful thing. It can make otherwise rational human beings act in very irrational ways. There are many types of fear but one of the greatest is fear of the unknown. We often tend to ostracize what we do not know or understand for fear that knowledge will change us. It will! That is a g...

I will try to give a weekly update of goings on in the Cary/Raleigh Area. I will of course be brilliantly entertaining and yet quite erudite. Dont hold me to that last part though since I may not know exactly what it means.
