 New Year Blues or All Fired Up?  Have you ever thought about the poor schmucks who wake up the first "work" day of the new year and think....I'm exhausted? Imagine how much harder it is when all you see is the "fresh start" posts and the "just do it" comments. Whew....I'm tired just thinking abo...
 Is It Time To Trim Your Nails? Stay with me, this is going to make sense. I've been enjoying all the New Year's posts about plans and goals. They are very inspiring to me. One of the themes is keeping in touch with prospects and serving them....but can you do this too much? I try to stay very we...
 Ah...The Crystal Ball How many times a day am I asked to predict the future of real estate in my area. Family, friends...the lady in line at Starbucks behind seems everyone asks me what real estate is going to do in the coming week, month, year. Now even Active Rain is asking me via Pra...
 "Only If You Bring The Guacamole" Yes, I have a client who wants to see a home this afternoon! It's just one home and it should be perfect for them. I found this home last week as I prepared for our home tour this past Saturday. The clients are relocating from New England and wanted a "very Cali...

His "Keeping in Touch" challenge is sure to give us all some great ideas....some we may not have thought about before. For me, I have always valu...
 When It Rains in California.....Well Actually, I Can't Remember  It's raining...yep in Sunny California. Something damp is falling from the sky. I seem to remember something like this happening when I was young...but it's been a long time. Yes....exaggerating!Actually we've been having rain off-...
 Boom or Bust – How Was Your 2016? As 2016 comes to an end, it’s time to think about how business was this year. As you reflect over the past year, how did you do? Did you achieve your goals for your business and your income? What about your personal goals? Did you knock it out of the park or str...
 If At First You Don't least keep the client! I love Active Rain Contests and Challenges. We learn so much from each other in the Rain...and from our own reflections as we tell our stories. This morning I found the Contest, "Who Says There Are No Do-Overs?," and it reminded me of a ...
 You Can Buy That Fixer Too!Use Construction Loans to Fiance Distressed Properties  We've all seen them, that property that just screams potential. Maybe it's the tear down with the ocean view or the leaning Craftsman that has personality. Regardless of the property which calls to you; it's for s...
