Continuing Ed Classes in Connecticut, Today! - 01/27/10 08:00 PM
I got my first 6 hours completed today:) Our Board had offered them earlier, but, I had appointments that had to be kept on those days. So, yes, I take my classes in the middle of winter. It has been warmer than normal, so, thank goodness for that. No trouble driving, roads are down to tar. The two classes today were, Connecticut Buyer Agency and Connecticut Disclosure, RESPA, and Law Update. We have a new Board Secretary at Tri-County. She did an excellent job. I hope that we didn't overwhelm her. Everyone did try to be considerate of her. She has (2 comments)
Week Two of the Blitz! - 01/25/10 05:56 PM
So, let's here from you. How did you do last week? My competitive spirit makes me over perform during these Blitz days:) I popped by everyone I knew, wanted to know, or who I thought I knew! It was exhausting and fun! Seeing everyone face to face, does take time. Yet, my days seemed to fly by. Listings, showings, appointments, and yes, Blitzing, too! It was an awesome week. On to week two. Today, it rained all day in Connecticut. Very warm for this time of year, 55. Very wet, so, thank goodness, it wasn't popby week! LOL! Umbrellas would have (3 comments)

1st Day of the Buffini Blitz! Are You In? - 01/18/10 06:31 PM
Yes, the Blitz started today! I had several calls from members, checking in, making sure we are all performing our popby duties! It is really cool to have folks that you have met at events, take the time to call you and see how you are doing. I don't know that the Blitz was partially designed by Brian to do this or not, but, it is amazing how supportive our community is. I spoke with six members today, emailed another 10 and wrote notes to 5. My Coach, Dave McGhee, even called me today! (I was shopping, but, it was okay. (6 comments)

This is a Good Start! - 01/08/10 11:20 AM
The year, 2010, is already giving me a good start for my business. Many of us have struggled to get through the last few years and our payback is on its way. It won't rebound like the last high marker, but, it will bounce along until we reach an acceptable level. After all, someone is moving, every day. New job, larger family, downsizing a family home, buying a second home for vacations, divorce, and people die. My good start is possible because I have a strong support system. I have clients that refer their friends, co-workers and family to me. They (7 comments)
If You Think That They Were Not Watching You..... - 01/05/10 10:03 AM
I had to share my latest experience with you. I am sure it has, or will, happen to you. I have three wonderful children, who are now adults. They all make me very proud. Good citizens, kind and considerate of others and they really are motivated. My youngest Daughter is, now, looking for a house. She has spent the most time with me, during my real estate career. I obtained my license when she was in nursery school. She has come to closings with me, waited for me while I was out showing homes, taken messages for me, set up my (10 comments)
Setting Office Production Goals - 01/04/10 05:48 AM
I have just faced this year end task. I do have a Coach, at Buffini and Company. My agents are trained with the 100 Days of Greatness. If you haven't heard of this training program, do look into using it. The theory is, after taking this training course, your agents should have learned the skills to become a successful Realtor. There is even a test that they take, which profiles their skills in selling. I have come to believe that everyone cannot sell. They dress up, drive around, and show homes. However, closing the deal, is the sweet taste of success. Can they (15 comments)
The wind picked up today, which made it difficult for the highway department to keep up with the roads. Most of the roads were slick and the snow kept blowing across all of the lanes. Our roads are now, treated with calcium. Much better than the sand with stones in it. Our cars are much better off this winter. Our windshields used to get hit by those tiny stones, along with the front grill of the cars. However, this mixture that they are using, needs a (2 comments)
Have You Found These, Yet? - 01/02/10 06:49 PM
I can never resist a good markdown. This product I found at Sam's Club, which, as you know, has awesome reductions! Yes, it's that time of year. Leftovers from the holidays need to go, in the stores, too! I had no idea, when I purchased them, that they would be such a good find. They are Flameless Everlasting Candles. They appear to be real candles. Run by 3 AAA batteries, they flicker like a real candle would. You can switch them on and off. The ones that I purchased, happened to be scented with vanilla. I have them on my mantle and (7 comments)
The New Year Starts Out with a Rush & Snow in Connecticut! - 01/02/10 02:35 PM
Welcome to 2010! Happy to be selling homes in this market. I am so grateful to my clients, friends and family for remembering my name, when they or someone they know, is looking for a good Realtor! I have a week ahead of me that I am very excited about. New clients, new listings, some former clients and yes, some family, are looking to move into new homes this new year! Rates are below 5%, the bailout credits are still being offered, until April 30th, and business is booming! Contracts being negotiated, inspections set up, and closings scheduled. Yes, this is (8 comments)
