WE all have dealt with both of these kinds of buyers in the past. These are terms that I have heard since Real Estate 101.  Are these the terms that you are familiar with. The Tire Kickers and Tooth Pickers are those possible FUTURE buyers that want to use YOUR precious time right then.  The are ...

  I just read a post from another Active Rainer regarding folks that just talk too much and waste your time when you are busier than a "one armed Paper Hanger". WE have a few agents in our workplace that just like to talk and when you see them coming , you want to cringe because you have not comp...

 You have to either love doing them or dislike doing them..Frankly, I enjoy getting out into different parts of the county and making new discoveries.  Communities that I have not been to before. Just finished doing 2 BPO's and getting them emailed to the originator.  What great fun.  I find that...

  God Is Good.. This is so neat. This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.1. Your thumb is nearest you.. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once...

I would like for someone to share with me, how to hook up with the lenders that will work with me on foreclosures and short sales. Seems like some agents get all of that business and I want to learn how to break into that market. I will be taking the short sale course soon and want to be successf...

We all know the answer to that.  To list and sell property as often as possible. How we go about doing that is what makes us all different. If you have the chance to take the Mark Leader course...just do it. I have listed and sold real estate since 1983 and each time I go to a workshop like this,...

I do not remember a more rainy Summer than we have had here in 2013. We have needed a good rain so much.  Finally we got over 20  inches of rain over the past couple of weeks.  Raining every day right now.  Usually there is a dip in the yard that fills up with water...and we call it Ginger Lake.....

  I have always know that LISTINGS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME! How true that is.. I learned that over 30 years ago.  If you have the listings you will succeed..that is if you price your listing right. Today, I listed 2 lots on Oak Island, 1 condo at Oak Island Beach Villas and 1 Ocean Front house.  ...
