Lunch Lessons - 02/25/09 02:48 PM
For some reason, it seems like more and more of my day to day experiences are providing me with blog topics....as well as business lessons! For example, the simple act of going out to lunch the other day inspired this blog...a lesson for sellers, agents, and Pizza Hut! It was a crazy day and we decided to slip into the Brunswick Pizza Hut to hit the buffet. It seemed like a good decision at the time...fast...hot...and involving pizza. What could go wrong? Well..it started with waiting 10 minutes to be seated. There was no one in line in front of us...tons of (12 comments)
"Skip Work, Play Golf" - 02/18/09 10:01 AM
While the weathermen are keeping an eye on an approaching snowstorm, Maine Golfers are looking forward to the first days of spring. The first day they can step out on the links and see how many trees they can hit...or balls they can lose...or lakes they can splash through. At least that's how my golf game usually goes! But luckily, when it comes to golf courses Maine has something for every skill level and every budget. With over 140 courses, you can choose from an intimate beginners course or a stunning world-class layout. You can decide to play 9 holes in a scenic mountain (1 comments)
"If I Was Rich, I'd Do This For Free!" - 02/13/09 11:29 AM
I recently read an article in The Times Record about a local fisherman. The young man talked about his love for the sea and how much he enjoyed his job. In his own words... "If I was rich, I'd do this for free!" You can read the whole story here. That got me thinking about how wonderful it is to love what you do for a living. Considering the average American spends a minimum of 40 hours a week at work....and for Real Estate Agents that figure can be considerably higher... loving your job is important!
Why are they all blank? Well...it's because if you're planning on buying a home, then I can't think of 1 good reason to not have a home inspection! For most people, the purchase of a home is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, investment they will make in their lifetime. It is vital that you know what you're taking on with that investment! Sure..you fell in love with that home the minute you saw it! But remember, my friend, that love is blind! Love might make you miss that water (4 comments)
The HAP Homes Have Arrived! - 02/04/09 11:40 AM
Well folks...it's official. The HAP homes are now on the market! Those of you who have been with me for a while may remember a few posts I did regarding the Homeowners Assistance Program at Brunswick Naval Air Station. I had a terrific response from those posts and answered many questions before the Army Corp of Engineers asked to me stop. Apparently, they are the only ones "allowed" to answer HAP questions. Puhleeezzz... But that's a different blog. So for those of you who are new, well...let's back up a bit. In 2005, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission announced that Brunswick Naval Air Station (2 comments)
