Taking the long way. - 03/31/09 05:01 PM
Well, it happened to me again. I have to take the long way to get the listing from time to time. For the awhile, I was the queen of going out on a listing appointment, telling it as I see it, only to have the sellers list with the super-producer or the dream price Realtor. A few sellers have kept in touch with me to complain about their Realtor, or ask me questions about what their Realtor is doing, which puts me in a precarious and uncomfortable position. I do not want to talk badly about my cohorts, and I do (2 comments)

But when I came in to work the first shift Friday and Sunday, people were gathered in front of the doors to get in, which I took as a good sign. I walked around and talked to some vendors today, soliciting their feedback on this year's home show with the admission charge. I received some interesting comments, and most of it was that they felt the people who did attend (0 comments)
Where Do I Find Foreclosure Listings For Free? - 03/02/09 06:11 PM
If I had a dime for every time I have been asked this question. This is how it starts: "I am interested in buying a foreclosure, but when I look online, all the sites want a credit card number. Where do I find free foreclosure listings?" I try not to sigh at this point as I gear up for my speech. Here is what you need to know about foreclosure sites: <strong>Never give a foreclosure site your money because the information on these sites is not worth a dime.</strong> Reason #1 - Foreclosure sites gather their information from the mandatory notice (0 comments)
