A Break from Usual Blog Today- NC Shrimp Recipe- - 05/31/07 09:20 AM
I posted this a few days ago but at that time did not know about this group -- received suggestions I should post here. I am an avid cook so I really do belong here. I'm taking a break from my usual post and am sharing a wonderful recipe featuring NC shrimp (maybe other shrimp will work as well, LOL) If you make this and enjoy, let me know. I've served it to many people and it always gets raves

An acquaintance told me about a site today that is very appropriate for this Memorial Day weekend. It is http://www.ancestry.com. Now thru D-Day (June 6th), you can search free of charge for family members who served in wars back to the Revolutionary War. When you get to the home page you will need to click on War Conflicts Personal Stories. I found this very interesting although I am not a history or genealogy buff. I located some of my relatives who served in the Civil War and was able to pull service records of some—draft notice, discharge, etc. There is (0 comments)

Representing Family Members in Real Estate Transactions - 05/25/07 07:24 AM
How do you feel about representing family members in real estate transactions? I have talked with agents who say it’s no problem and they have done it many times. On the other hand, others say they have done it and it was a disaster and caused big problems in the family. Why? Was it because of poor communication? Did the Agent not communicate clearly and truthfully what he/she planned to do to help the family buy or sell a property? Or was it because the family expected to receive special treatment-- whatever that might mean? I believe that you can and should (40 comments)

Dancing With The Stars & How it Compares With Selling Real Estate - 05/23/07 09:03 AM
I really enjoy Dancing with The Stars, maybe because I have a dance background having started at age 3 and dancing through college. But there is more to it----the intensity, the dedication, the hard work, the cooperation, the partnerships, the timing, the long hours, the judging. Are you seeing the correlation here with selling real estate? We, as Agents, definitely must be dedicate, cooperate, work hard, partner with others, our timing must be right, put in long hours (duh??), and are we ever judged! So, what can we learn from Dancing With the Stars? To persist, put on a happy face, (3 comments)
Education from ActiveRain - 05/22/07 09:35 AM
I am learning so very much from the ActiveRain community--I'm just in awe of the quality of the information shared here. This is the place to get an education in marketing, client relationships, referrals, blogging, webpage designs and content, internet problems, solutions and so much more. I cannot imagine what it would cost to attend classes that would cover and offer the quality and quantity of information contained on ActiveRain. I just want to thank ActiveRain and all its members for teaching me so much and in a way that is convenient, entertaining and efficient. Cynthia Tilghman, Hubert, N C New (8 comments)
Where Agents Can Get Links - 05/21/07 09:54 AM
While surfing the internet I came across a site that provides some excellent links, some free--some not. Perhaps most of you already know about these but some were new to me. I am always searching for more exposure on the internet and here is a place you can find places to do that. Hope this is helpful--it's not ActiveRain but what is? I'd like to hear if any of you found something on this site you did not know about previously. Look for RealEstateABC.com and look under Agent Section.

"Who's Hiding in Your Address Book" - Networking for Women - 05/19/07 09:43 AM
This is the title of a new book by Mary Kurek, a local networking coach, due out June 26. I have been online and ordered mine (she's preselling some prior to release date). Ms. Kurek is knowledgeable and successful and really knows the art of networking. From what I have read and heard this book is different from other networking books in that it enable one to start implementing the methods immediately and provides benefits to the best networking organization in any location. I do not know Ms. Kurek personally but I have talked with many who call her a networking (3 comments)
More Home Buyers Are Out Looking - 05/18/07 04:41 PM
We have seen traffic pick up in the last two weeks. This makes me very optimistic about the Spring and Summer. Our market has been pretty slow like much of the country for the past few months and from what we have been hearing from the news media, it was not likely to get any better any time soon. I beg to differ. It seems to me that the media enjoys reporting bad economic news, especially the housing market. It is frightening how much the media influences the public, the market, our business and our bank accounts! Is there anything we the Active (4 comments)
How Do You Deal With Builder Problems? - 05/15/07 06:40 AM
I was in a situation yesterday that made me very uncomfortable, perhaps some of you can give me some pointers of a better way to handle situations like this. Maybe I should give you a little background about me and my business so you will understand where I come from. I work very closely with a builder in his subdivision listing and selling his new homes. I also receive most of the resale listings in this subdivision. This has been my situation since I started in this business. This builder is very quality conscience so I am accustomed to quality (6 comments)
Respect for the Military - 05/11/07 06:52 AM
Over the past few years I have gained much respect for our Military. Prior to working in real estate, I had never had much contact with people in the Military service. I regret to say my conception of Marines, etc. was young, wild and driving a car with a loud amp system. Boy, was I off base! I am fortunate enough to live and work near Camp LeJeune Marine Base, N C. Thus, many of my clients are Marine and Navy and I have learned that they are some of the most dedicated, loyal, hardworking and moral people I have ever (3 comments)
Vacationing at the Coast of NC - 05/10/07 08:23 AM
If you are planning a vacation at the coast of NC, I can assist you with information regarding restaurants, accommodations, entertainment, etc. I have lived in this area all my life so I know the area very well. I grew up in Pine Knoll Shores, N C across the street from the ocean. The North Carolina Aquarium is less than 1/2 mile from my parents' home. By the way, it has just undergone a major renovation ($20 million dollars, I think) and is a perfect place to spend some time when you are ready to get out of the sun or (4 comments)

What is going on with the weather in eastern N.C? The calendar says May but today has been blustery and cold in Hubert, N C.
