 What Happens After The Storm?When Hurricane Irma whipped through our neighborhood,  we lost our power.  As a matter of fact, we lost in at 4:00 PM Sunday and Irma was not due for another 9 hours.  Yes, winds had picked up in the form of gusts, and rain bands had started, but nothing that we woul...

One of the main points of our "value proposition" is that we never use the phrase "value proposition" - either verbally, in written marketing materials, or even in our thoughts. We're making a special exception for this post, obviously. Let me explain. Back when we were working for Big Box Realty...

We've all been there. On the fence of trying to buy the story of a non paying tenant. So here I am again with 2 tenant occupied listings and I'm told one tenant has stopped paying, but wants to purchase his unit. I called and had a nice conversation with him.

I don't believe there's ever been better advice offered on what it takes to achieve success than Henry David Thoreau's message on advancing confidently toward our dreams.   Many of us have seen and read the following quote more than once and appreciate it every time we see it.  There was a time t...

One of the biggest decorating and/or home staging mistakes that homeowners, and many real estate agents, make is placing a mirror above the fireplace.It generally seems like a good idea, but in most cases it's not the best choice. A friend of mine, Michelle, moved into a new home recently.

   When asked if blogging works. I replied with a few questions.   Does one print ad sell a house?  Does one postcard sell a house? Does one For Sale sign sell a house? Does placing the property in the MLS sell it? Does one impromptu open house do the trick? Does one radio show sell a house? Does...

In our mail today was Money magazine's annual Best Places To Live list and for the first time in awhile Warren County didn't have a Top 50 city.  Mason Ohio has typically been in the top 25 when the criteria aligned with what Mason offers.  But this year, it looks like the criteria shifted a bit....

More buyers fewer homes...they go fast.  Remem...

 Networking has been an important part of my business model from my first years in the real estate business.  I was fortunate to have a broker/mentor show me the ropes and get me involved (whether I wanted to or not). He also pretty much made me (or so it seemed at the time) to join committees as...

What Makes an MLS Photo Bad?If you belong to any social media group of agents, you will see outrage at bad MLS photos.  Real estate agents are a tough crowd.  They seem to measure every listing they see against how they would better present a home.  It's natural.  It's our job.  There are probabl...

You're Looking Out for Veterans?      In today's issue of "I love my business but sometimes hate my industry", I read today that there's a federal investigation into the "churning" of VA loans, which, if you've been in the mortgage industry for more than a few months, falls into the "duh" categor...
