Younger Agents Can Do Better Than the Veteran - 03/02/08 02:56 AM
There are so many agents that I look up to. Some have 20-30 years of experience. I can only aspire to do as well, if not, better than they did, with their help, of course. But older does not ALWAYS mean BETTER. I had to go through great lengths to look as though I'm in my mid-30s just to be taken seriously in this business. I am under 30, and while I don't like to admit my age, for fear of being looked upon as inexperienced, I take pride in knowing that I am a hard worker and a GREAT REALTOR. I (8 comments)
What's Hot, What's Not: Spotting the New Home Trends of `08 - 03/02/08 02:25 AM
RISMEDIA, Feb. 6, 2008-(MCT)-Wenge, it's been good to know you. Sunken Jacuzzis, we had some good times. Blue and brown, I can't believe it's over. But after a couple of years of same-old, same-old on the home-front, winds of change are blowing in. Some are driven by fashion, others by economic conditions and lifestyle shifts. 2008 will see waves of mainstream homeowners going green to save green, according to Ann Mack, director of trend spotting at JWT, a New York advertising firm. What Mack describes as a desire for "Prius homes" is being driven in part by financial incentives. "Major banks are offering (0 comments)

I was always an upbeat child, interested in people. Social & Energetic, Warm and inviting, it wasn't hard to for someone like myself to adjust to this business. I gave more of my TIME and ATTENTION and it was all in the NAME of RECIPROCITY that others gave back, in form of referrals, friendships, relationships for life. I love details and systems. In this 24/7 job, I had to do more than just LOVE being with PEOPLE, I had to LEARN to WORK WITH THEM. It didnt take long for my infectious enthusiasm to spread.

Deferrable. Depreciable. Deductible. - 03/01/08 09:46 PM
While it is the best time to buy.... Media, today, portray the gloom similar to the presumed DOOMED Housing MARKET that they thought it was in 1985. Looking back, we could have bought many and cashed in our paychecks in 2003-2004 to allow us ALL to retire. Time will tell who can expect early retirement in 2013-2020, when market shifts to the seller's side. There is still no greater investment than REAL ESTATE. Deferrable. Depreciable. Deductible.

You, FIRST! Why? How? - 03/01/08 09:36 PM
It is a New Beginning for the New Year, a fresh new start for any business, for any homebuyer and seller. I truly believe that "life is what we make it." And for it to be a magnificent story largely depends on OUR persistence, motivation and habits. A brief character analysis of the author is owed to you, the reader. It is important that you know my beliefs, my values and my background to fully grasp my message. As they say, "you can't believe the message, if you don't believe the messenger." Most importantly, you can't believe the messenger if there are no values to create (0 comments)
Optimism Breeds Success - 03/01/08 09:22 PM
Success traits can be learned from studying successful people and paying attention to our own actions. We need to make a decision if we want success in our lives and then make a decision to CHANGE. A great place to learn is from reading what others have done, who have gone before you. The following links shed wonderful insight on SUCCESSFUL LIVING . Like everything else... it begins with a single step.

Success Views - 03/01/08 11:20 AM
With the wave of pessimism.... we sometimes overlook that with recession comes great opportunities. My business partner, Marc Brodeur, often reminds me of the common adage to buy low and sell high. He then goes on to mention, "but, Annabelle, do they ever really do this?" The point he made was shocking. With the home prices at their lowest, buyers and investors alike are not taking the very best deals offered to them. Fear prevents them from buying low (it might go lower, oh no!) and euphoria (it will go higher!) prevents them from selling high. This occurs in all markets, (3 comments)
