  In this time of challenging real estate markets it is important for agents to try their best to keep personal emotions aside when advising clients.  Admittedly, this is a difficult bridge to cross especially when we sympathize with our clients with regard to them absorbing a huge loss on the sale of their home.   We are not doing our clients a favor by not pointing out to them what their competition is selling for regardless of what our clients may have initially paid for their home. We need to be careful not to allow ourselves to be depressed by a situation such as this or we may not be able to act from an unbiased position. We had a such a situation a few weeks back.  Our seller had just lowered their price as a result of a contingent offer that was cancelled.  Another prospective b...

Indian Springs Country Club is a golf fanatic's haven.  People cannot stop raving about the course and the outstanding prices that are offered.  And while the course speaks for itself, the country club has much more to offer with it. With that said, it truly is the golf course that blows people's minds.  From magazines to critics, the Indian Springs Country Club has quickly created a highly reputable image for itself.  In fact, it has been rated the best course under $100 by The Desert Sun and has received Golf Digest's 4 STAR rating for 2008-2009.  The price makes the golf experience worth every minute, but many are attracted to the fact that it is one of the most player friendly courses in the desert.  Whether you are a pro or a novice, you are sure to enjoy every aspect of the course...

  A few weeks ago I was surprised to be invited by my daughter to the Stagecoach County Music Festival at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio. Not knowing a lot of the details of the Festival I still gladly accepted my daughters invitation without any hesitation. I didn't do much in regards to preparing for the Festival aside from making arrangements to stay at a friend's condo in Palm Spring's, a condo that sits on a golf course (My daughter and I both love to golf). I also invited my wife and her friend to stay at the condo in Palm Springs. They weren't going to the festival, but would have a good time spending the weekend out in the desert with all of the shops and nice restaurants. The weekend came and it was time to start heading out to Palm Springs but before we could leave my daught...
