  Inspirational Power Quote   Your Destiny is Your Choice   "Destiny is not a matter of chance, but a choice.  Not something to wish for, but to attain."  William Jennings Bryant    As I see it. . . . . . . . Achieving our destiny becomes a matter of the choices we make and the actions we take.  Success does not happen by chance, it's to be attained through our choices and our continued effort.   Pursuing our destiny will take a dedicated purpose and a willingness to stay on course until we achieve our desired outcome.  The price of achieving our destiny is taking the personal responsibility to achieve that destiny.  Creating a compelling destiny and forward momentum in our life and career is a matter of choice.    Lou Ludwig, Sales and Management Consultant, Inspirational Speaker, Educ...

   Inspirational Power Quote   Ask the Right Questions   "Getting the right answers is only possible when you have asked the right questions."  Michael E. Angier   As I see it. . . . . . . . The foundation of asking the right questions comes with the process of proactive listening and applying the rule of 80-20.  Listen 80% of the time to secure information and knowledge. Use 20% of your time in asking the right questions.

  Many of my clients ask me why should I do a short sale vs. a foreclosure.  Here are a few answers to those questions. With a Short Sale you will lose between 125-150 points on your credit score. With a Foreclosure you will lose 250 points in most cases. With a Short Sale we have had an 85% success rate to have the banks waive the right to come after you for the difference of the what is owed, and what the bank receives otherwise known as a deficiency judgement. With a Foreclosure 100% of the time they get a deficiency judgement that in many cases forces the customer into bankruptcy. With a Short Sale the ability to get a new loan is hindered, but only for 2 years. With a foreclosure it is going to be very tough to even get a new loan.  Right now they say about 5 years minimum. There ...

The Beach House Sold 1 Day After I Put My Sign Up And Let Me Tell You Why. I personally painted the entire house, cleaned and cleared the entire yard front and back, lay-ed down sod and mulch, painted the garage inside and out, stained the fence from wood to white, stained the decks from wood to white, and pressured cleaned everything to give it a clean new look. While I was working on it you wouldn't believe how many people stopped by and asked to see it before I was even done.  Here is the flyer before we remodeled the listing. I know that hard work is what it takes in this market and thats what I want everyone to understand. The Real Estate Industry has changed once again and you must be able to adapt to the changes. You must be able to see the potential of a house and bring that pot...

Have you heard the news? We have a beautiful new home!  Our entire staff joins me in thanking and congratulating the membership on the completion of the new Business Center.  This 12,000 sq.ft. building now accomodates real estate, property owner's association, accounting, administration and management offices for Quail Ridge. We have modern, efficient offices and ample meeting space.    The real estate market continues to be challenging.  Quail Ridge currently has 26 sales year to date.  In light of the market conditions existing in South Florida and across the country, this is actually very good.  As of this writing, Quail Ridge Realty has 70 listings, which is still only a little over seven percent (7%) of the total homes in Quail Ridge. What determines a home's value? Typically, it ...

As the new Real Estate Director at Quail Ridge Country Club Realty, I am really enjoying this community and all it has to offer.  Quail Ridge has two championship golf courses, 16 tennis courts, a fitness center, clubhouse and all the world-class amenities one would expect from a privtae, member-owned country club community in South Florida. The best part of Quail Ridge?  Truly, it has to be the people!  The slogan here is "Championship Golf...Championship Neighbors" - and I am finding that to be absolutely true.  I have experienced such a warm welcome from the club members.  People who recently have moved in tell me the same thing as well.  Quail Ridge is a special place - you can feel it as soon as you come through the gate.  The atmosphere is peaceful, tranquil and beautiful.  Flower...

The new downtown area will offer a yachting marina, outdoor performance square and exhibit of kinetic art sculptures. Promenade Park, a natural preserve, will provide scenic walking and jogging trails bordering the ICW and Pedestrian Promenade, and interconnecting walkway, and wil...
