Can a community's walkability affect obesity rates? - 01:10 AM
Is there a connection between land use and obesity? Lawrence Frank, a University of British Columbia researcher, seems to think so. Researchers say there is a need for more exercise-friendly places to live. It appears that these are in older neighborhoods, located in more urban areas. The article, titled Exercisers Stuck in Unwalkable Settings, also says "some people can't afford housing in walkable neighborhoods, where homes can cost up to three times as much as similar housing in non-walkable areas."

Time Share for Sale - Key Largo - 03:30 AM
It's funny, but yesterday I went to the REFERRAL section of AR looking for someone to sell my Time Share in Key Largo. Not 5 minutes later, I came across a post from Jan Keller, on the beauty of Key Largo and what there is to do there. Her post would be a wonderful ad for selling my Time Share unit at Anchorage Resort and Yacht Club! Read Jan's post to see what kind of fun you can have in Key Largo.
What the......???????? - 06:18 AM
Some one sent me a bunch of strange pictures in an email earlier this morning. I thought that a few of them were worth sharing. Can you imagine receiving a flyer for any one of these properties? Lovely water front Ranch home. Very natural landscaping - Beautiful Rock Garden.
Small but cozy home on corner lot. Ok I can't even begin to describe this one. haha OH - multi-unit building in high rent district. An investors dream.

25,000 Points in 30 Days!!! - 06:57 PM
Ok, so why the flames? Because I'm burning this joint up! LOL Once I got the hang of working with ActiveRain, I decided that (no matter what, I would do a post on what my first 30 days have brought me. Well, I'm glad to report that I passed the 25,000 mark within just 30 days of becoming an ActiveRain member. (I'm still a newbie!) Here's a list of what I did to get to this point: I read the ActiveRain post on how to earn points and made a plan to take daily action. I did my best to create a full profile. (21 comments)
Return Phone Calls!!!!!!! - 01:17 PM
This absolutely floors me to the point I wanna cry, yes I said cry! In todays (insert any adjective you want) market you would think if you received a phone call on your listing from an agent with a buyer wanting to present an offer, you would call them back. I have a buyer willing to put 50% down, no contingencies close in 3 weeks and the listing agent won't get back to me. The listing agents broker won't wither. HOLY CRAP! What is wrong with this picture. My broker even called the other broker, no call back. Oh I forgot (11 comments)
Where have all the Buyer's gone? - 06:46 PM
Here I sit on my 4th hour of an open house that is priced better than right, I had one lookie lou walk through the door and nothing is happening. I have marketing, I have 8 signs with balloons on the streets which I must say have great traffic. Is it a sign of the times, the consumers appear to be sitting on their hands like never before. The good news is I was able to read many a blog, e-mail many a Realtor, call and e-mail many a client. I just miss talking to people face to face where I can (3 comments)
"How to Master the Art of Listing & Selling Real Estate" by Tom Hopkins - 10:09 PM
As most of you already know...I am an avid book reader and when I come across a good book I like to mention it. This is a book I picked up about three years ago when I was still considered a "newbie". Like the other books I have mentioned previously, if you can get just one good idea from it that you can incorporate into your day-to-day activities that either saves you time or saves you money...it's well worth it. Just to give you an idea about my approach to reading these books...I usually sit down in my favorite easy chair (1 comments)
About Titusville Florida - 03:20 PM
Titusville is an interesting situation. The city, right now, is reinventing itself. Titusville can lay claim, with considerable justification, to being the original city to give the entire area the name “Space Coast”. Both men and women of every possible NASA job description, and in the greatest numbers, chose Titusville as their place to call home.Other choices, of course, were Cocoa and Melbourne, but Titusville had pride of place: it was closer, easier to access, and had everything you needed. As time passed, the “center of gravity” for the entire area drifted down the Coast towards Melbourne. It seems now that (1 comments)
The Eleven attributes of a great salesperson and Top Producer! - 05:25 PM
<!--StartFragment--> The Eleven attributes of a great salesperson and Top Producer! Having been in management and sales for over 35 years-these are the points that I feel sum it all up. I find they are applicable in all fields of business and especially Real Estate.
1. They believe in themselves. Good sales people visualize themselves as being successful. They truly expect the deals to go their way. This confidence seeps into all they say and do and it is catching. *Customers respond to optimism and high energy. It’s absolutely necessary for a top producer to believe in himself or herself in (3 comments)
Vincent, what is PMI? - 12:25 AM
PMI, also known as Private Mortgage Insurance, is a supplemental insurance policy you may pay for to protect your mortgage lender in the event of your default. PMI is provided by private (non-government) companies and is usually required when your loan-to-value ratio (the amount of your mortgage loan divided by the value of your home) is greater than 80 percent. PMI isn't a bad thing - it allows lenders to accept lower down payments on homes than they would normally be comfortable with. But you may be paying it unnecessarily! If you'd like to learn more about eliminating PMI insurance from your mortgage (1 comments)
The Palo Alto Real Estate Market - Where is it headed? - 02:52 AM
Palo Alto Real Estate Market - Where is it headed? We all want to know! As the national real estate market continues to exhibit signs of a meltdown, we in the local SF Mid Peninsula Real Estate Market still survey a scene where the only pandemonium to be seen is the continued frenzy over some local real estate offerings. To be sure, the number of active listings is up over the last couple of months, but come on. This is the beginning of the fall selling season. Palo Alto Inventories are still remarkably low. They have been hovering in the 30s (for (2 comments)

Time is money and more valuable - 12:04 PM
Nothing beats time. Everyone on their deathbed knows it. Money is certainly valuable. It pays the rent or better yet, mortgage. It funds our business. What is the best way to use your money to provide you with more time? Also, what are the best things to do with your time to create more time. For example, taking the afternoon to walk your neighborhood and hang door hangers with your business card on them might sound good, but the next company to spending thousands to mail out postcards to the entire east side of your city. Which is better? Depends on (2 comments)

Visitors have always been happily surprised with the incredible people of our city. Nice is a simple word that describes us. New to town? Ask your neighbor for some helpful information.
