I got that phone call AGAIN today.  This time it was a builder rather an agent, but the context of the phone call was the same.You know that phone call- the one where the person on the other end who has never met you, seen your portfolio, visited your website, or read your blog, but wants to help...
This week at SIF was  great one to moderate.  It was a week of stellar posts - really, I saw a distinct increase in the number of quality posts and it has been very difficult to decide who and what to feature.One thing I did notice is that we saw a lot of repeat topics.  Many of you wrote a blog,...

This is our first attempt to create an official week in review for the SIF group.  It is something that many of the other larger groups do and that Craig has wanted to start for a long time, so we thought we would give it a shot.  Because we are only 10 days into the month, I thought I would cove...
This post was actually written for and posted on my other blog, but I thought all of you would like to add your 2 cents in the comments.  I only posted 5 reasons, though there are many, many more I'm sure.  This is a subject that has been coming up a lot lately and will probably be discussed more...
Okay, it didn't take FOREVER, but it did take 8 days to complete.  Only 6 days over my original schedule (rolling eyes).Here are some sample photos.  I think it was worth the wait!  The office.  The living room.  The Master.
