To Save Me From the Pit of Virtual Despair and Bad Hygiene - 05/31/10 10:09 AM
With the constant stream of techno gadgets, do this-do that now, get this learn that, and just bought now outdated, what is a girl (or guy) to do? Just when I am patting myself on the back for staying current, WHAM,I am old fashioned again. It is a evil cycle that can take good intentions of productivity and turn them into an entire day of pajama wearing, no showering, crack head stare! So I have decided to implement a plan, one that will hopefully save me from the pit of virtual despair and bad hygiene.
The Plan (If you didn't hear a (5 comments)
I Fell In Love With My Client~~A Memorial Day Reminder - 05/30/10 10:30 AM
I did the unthinkable; I fell in love with my client. It wasn't planned, no blind date jitters, none of my friends elbowing each other under the table. It just happened. Let me explain. This young man is a charismatic, happy, mannerly, and of course, handsome Drill Instructor for the United States Marines. I met him after he contacted me through email (found me on, yep you guessed, it Active Rain). We corresponded while he was checking out of his station post in Okinawa, Japan. He needed a home, a home very close to Parris Island (Marine Recruit Station). By time he (7 comments)
The Tired Old Approach of MLS Statistics - 05/26/10 10:35 AM
This is a common question both from visitors and even locals. The typical statistical answer of "this many homes sold in this amount of time" is just hogwash. Yep, I said it. There is no way there is a black and white answer for a not so black and white question.
As a seller, does he/she really care if 17 homes were sold and 11 went under contract in 7 months?? Not unless one of those homes belongs to them!! It is my humble (yet loud and defiant) opinion that there is entirely too much weight given to the (68 comments)
Knowing When To Grow~ - 05/24/10 08:45 AM
For many years (obviously I won't say exactly how many) I have been wearing the numerous hats of real estate. Some fit a bit more fashionably than others, yet I wore them all proudly and with stern obligation. From listing, to buyer, to developer, to investor, and so forth, I trudged heavily. I am proud that I was able to offer all excellent service at the expense of my over crowded brain; however, there comes a time when the Jack of all Trades must become a Master of One. I love the excitement of the first time buyer. I truly adore that (9 comments)
And I Think To Myself.... - 05/18/10 10:07 PM
I see skies of blue, clouds of white, bright blessed days, dark sacred nights, Louis Armstrong must have been to Beaufort, South Carolina.
For the soul that recharges with sunlight and finds saltwater to be the only necessary spa treatment, have you been to Beaufort?
To the eyes that crave the depth of color, to the bare feet that crave warm sand, have you been to Beaufort?
To the restless that long for peace, to the bored who long for inspiration, have you been to Beaufort?
