You know it's a bad day (with illustrations).... - 12:00 PM
Nothing to do with real estate,just very funny pictures.
Via Russel Ray, San Diego Marketing & Business Consultant (Russel Ray):
I get at least one email a week from my mother-in-law.
Usually they are about home inspections, real estate, fast cars, trains, Texas, sports, cats, and other things that she knows I like.
This morning's email is about knowing when you're having a bad day, and it's even illustrated with cat pictures.
My mother-in-law is soooooooo helpful.
Hope none of you are having a bad day this early in the year!
You woke up in a strange place.

Resolve for 2010 - Make the Move - How to Move your Real Estate Business Online - 10:05 AM
Have you resolved to change your ways in 2010? If you need help figuring out where to start, I highly recommend Claudia Wicks' new book, Make the Move: How to Move Your Real Estate Business Online. Why is this a great book? Because I'm in it, silly!! Just kidding... no, seriously, I am in it. I'm all of Chapter 15, starting on page 113: A Business Built on the Web. It's all about how almost all my business is created from something I do online. Why else is this a great book? Do you really need another reason? I already told
Do I Have to Agree with You? - 10:56 AM
Do I have to agree with you? Do you always agree with me? I was reading another post this morning by Carol Culkin talking about how some people have a lack of professional courtesy when commenting on other people's blog. I agree. There have been many times when I've written something where I got tons and tons of people agreeing with me and the handful of people not agreeing. Especially on my own blog, I always try to address the opposition with a polite comment back. Sometimes those people come back and continue to argue in which each situation is then
I was wrong about President Obama - 09:46 AM
Yes folks - I'm a convert! President Obama is apparently the greatest President in American history! In less than 12 months since he took office, the President has been dealing with a lot.
First of all there was all that stuff he had to deal with that was left to him by "the other guy". But not to worry - he has that sorted out now. The economy is booming (I've been reading the left wing blogs this morning) and healthcare has magically appeared in the Constitution without an Amendment or even an Executive Order. If you believe one of the
High school tennis about to start! - 08:37 PM
As my regular readers will know, each winter/spring I coach High School Tennis at Dr Phillips High School in Orlando. This year on the weekend before pre-season conditioning starts, we are holding a fund raising tournament.
Tennis is a wonderful high school sport. Frequently my teams end up in the top 10 in the State for average GPA of an athletics team. But of course tennis is starved of cash.
If you are in the Orlando area then PLEASE come and play! If not, then perhaps you would like to be one of our sponsors. Please contact me for

January = The Most Depressing Month of The Year - 09:57 AM
I recently read online that January is the most depressing month of the year. Not only is it dark outside longer, but the excitement of the holidays is over. Luckily, I'm not experiencing any depression, but I've found it to be more difficult waking up in the mornings, especially after a few holiday pounds that I've packed on, lol. Let's keep our spirits up and have a great 2010!

Make over the house to fit your lifestyle...
"We really loved the house, BUT..."
You just toured a home you liked, in a great location. But it didn't have new carpet, had unattractive landscaping, or it needed new electrical wiring throughout the house. Perhaps the house's paint sorely needed updating, or the home just lacked the modern amenities you and your family look for.
Because you can envision the possibilities...
From exterior curb appeal to interior repairs, don't walk away from what could be the Idaho home of your dreams because of things that

Stowe Vermont Land Sales - Market Report for Years 2005 through 2009
Now that 2009 is over, I have been compiling my year end data for my sales reports. I decided to start with Stowe Land Sales because there was not much activity with land sales in 2009. Land is hard to quantify because prices vary so much based on factors not easily apparent. Such factors include:1. Size of Lot - Generally, the larger the lot, the less it will cost based on a per acre formula.2. Location of Lot - Some neighborhoods are definitely more desirable.3. Views from Lot -
