Pay It Forward - The Good Fairy with a Snow Shovel! - 01/30/11 07:20 PM
Just as I recovered from a nasty winter cold the other day we were slammed with yet another snow storm. There was at least another foot of snow to shovel out of my driveway and walkways with almost no where left to put it. Like all my neighbors I was out as soon as the snow had stopped falling and we all commiserated as we shoveled about our fatigue from the storms nearly every week. One of my neighbors who is always one of the 1st to shovel out was noticeably absent from the activities and his driveway and steps were (10 comments)
Pay It Forward - Referral Fee with a Twist - 01/23/11 08:25 PM
Earlier this week a very dear old friend whose husband had recently passed away called and asked me for a favor. I was happy to help her in anyway I could since she and her husband had always been very generous with their kindness to me and my former partner. My friend inquired if I knew of a good agent in the southern part of our state because her grandson and his wife just had their first baby and they want to buy a home there but they didn't know who to turn to. She said she knows lots of agents (5 comments)
Pay It Forward - Lost Key - 01/16/11 01:58 PM
While shoveling out from the latest snowstorm the other day I received a voice mail message from a former listing client. My client due to a work transfer moved to another state several years ago just prior to the collapse of the market. We tried like heck to sell her property but the mortgage soon became underwater and the listing went unsold so she rented the property to her sister to at least partially meet the carrying costs of the property. I returned the call as soon as I got in from shoveling and learned that the sister had lost her (1 comments)
Pay It Forward - Pricing Dilemma - 01/09/11 10:35 PM
I received a frantic phone call the other day from a friend who is an agent at another agency here in town. My friend had just had a very contentious phone conversation with a listing client who doesn't understand why their house is getting no showings. In our phone conversation I reminded my friend of when I previewed the house awhile ago that I thought (as many of the agents did that day) that the asking price was too high for the market. My friend said that was the purpose of the call and some expert advice from not only a (4 comments)
Pay It Forward - Window Wisdom - 01/02/11 12:20 PM
Over this past hectic week of Holidays and a Blizzard I've pondered what event will pop up as a Pay It Forward moment to write about. There was gift giving, phone calls, shoveling snow all tossed into this past week, but what strikes me the most and leaves me with the warm and fuzzys is an encounter I had Thursday at a local Assessor's office while doing my daily due diligence for a client. As usual I was in a hurry that day and as luck would have it there was a lady in front of me getting some detailed (3 comments)
