Hello Mr. or Mrs. Buyer - 03/26/09 07:51 AM
Dear Mr. or Mrs. Buyer, When you call me on one of my listings I get so excited! You see, it means that someone is interested! My seller is really anxious to sell, so I love these calls! The issue here is that I want to tell you everything about this home, and all you want is the price! Now, if I tell you the price and it isn't what you thought it should be, do you hang up? Do you give me a chance to ask you if I can help you find something else? If you (24 comments)

As we go into Spring I am reminded of my ride on the merry-go-round! Real estate heats up and buyers get their income tax checks back from the IRS. We get calls, we make appointments, we write offers, we get counteroffers and lo and behold we sell homes!! For all of my years in business I long for Spring when I can get on the merry-go-round and do what I do best, sell happy buyers their new home with all of the wonder of great expectation and memories to be made! Yes we sell happiness! Get (16 comments)
This mornings sunrise was all golden and reflected on the thin sheet of ice over Long Lake! It made me happy to think that soon the ice will melt as we are expecting 50 and 60 degree temperatures this week. Can spring be far behind! Only time will tell Ohio! I am looking forward to a great year in real estate and this picture gives me the hope I need that someone up there is looking over us and contemplating how to help us move forward and survive the trials that have been laid in front of us!

GOOD NEWS!!! SELLERS LISTENING TO ME!!! - 03/04/09 10:00 AM
I have just gotten two huge reductions on listings and I am confident that we are aggressively meeting the market head on! One of the listings is a unique lakefront that I have had since just before the market turned sour and we have lowered it previously! It is a little old widow whose husband built the home and she has moved all of her belongings but a couch and chair and TV and kitchen table to another smaller home, more suitable to her needs. She will not live in the other home because she wants to "protect" her memories (13 comments)
