If the House is a Rockin', Don't Bother Knockin' - 10/23/10 06:04 PM
OR: "Tips for Door Knocking Without Feeling Like a Doorknob" When I first got into the biz, I remember interviewing with a small firm with just a few independent-minded agents. (Read: Barely Working Agents) The head cheese was a veteran agent of about 40 years and his advice for getting started was "knock on every door in your neighborhood and ask whomever answers if they know anyone who wants to buy or sell a house!" The only way I would ever knock on a stranger's door is if their house was on fire. I politely thanked him for the interview and moved on. (140 comments)
The 11Year Old Luminary - 10/20/10 05:07 PM
Sometimes I get caught up in things. You know when you start to re-evaluate and something catches your attention and throws you into a new direction? Sometimes, it just makes your journey that much longer and bumpier. Sometimes that leads someplace wonderful. I really enjoy listening to Real Estate Today Radio. Because I listen to it on podcast, I occasionally hear it several days after the actual broadcast. Last Saturday's show stopped me in my tracks today. There was an interview with an 11 year old girl who wants to become a REALTOR®. I thought- oh, how sweet! And how. Her (20 comments)
Leadership In Action: Belle Creek's Henderson Hawks Football - 10/15/10 01:19 PM
On a run in the late summer, I noticed something new in Belle Creek. A football team! Boys of many different ages groups were gathered with their coach, running plays, doing pushups, and learning the fundamentals. Soon after, when the Belle Creek Playground was being installed, neighbors volunteered their hours to help with the installation. Namely, spreading 2 semis'-worth of mulch under the newly installed equipment. Shortly after I got there, I noticed something impressive. The football team and their coach were leading the efforts!
Henderson Hawks Get the Fundamentals I soon found out that these were the Henderson (2 comments)
ExtremeHoax! Buy Yours NOW and Get a Second One FREE! - 10/12/10 07:34 PM
I found it under the sink. Well, not my kitchen sink. That one was cleaned out a couple of weeks ago when I had a small plumbing issue. Funny, the last time I had a kitchen sink plumbing issue was in about 1996, and I learned a little something about what not to keep there. Like phone books. But given that most people only look things up online now, I guess that wouldn't be an issue.
Ok, don't keep your computer under your kitchen sink. But I digress. You see? It doesn't look too bad under there right (12 comments)
Rain, Rain, You're Here Today! - 10/08/10 06:35 PM
As I sit here in my office overlooking Belle Creek's expansive central park, the rain is whipping at my window in gusts. Lighting is flashing with thunder not far behind, and my dog has positioned herself under my desk, atop my feet. It reminds me that Fall is here and Winter is on the way! Upcoming Events for Fall and Winter It’s one of my favorite times of year in Belle Creek. Starting in October, there are so many fun things to do with the whole family!
Boo on You! The Halloween Parade will start at 1pm on October 31st. Bring (2 comments)
The Baker's Dozen Agent - 10/08/10 01:41 PM
I went to my leads group yesterday and heard Gary Barnes talk. If you haven't hear of Gary, you should look him up- and try to go to one of his talks. He is a pretty amazing guy and his story would probably take all day to tell. Not that I know his whole story, but what I did hear was very intriguing and it took place after the leads group ended.
One of the really cool things he did yesterday when we spoke was to help me focus on what my "brand" might be. I know that we have (6 comments)
I don't usually get political..... the Final Chapter - 10/07/10 10:05 AM
Ok, I've said it before. In fact I may have said it too much this week, but here's my final installment on Political-ness. After that I will resume my usual meanderings and witicisms. Proposition 101- Provisions and Potential Impacts: Cuts annual vehicle registration fee to a flat $10/vehicle. Fee reductions cause a $390Million loss to transportation and road and bridge funding. Cuts specific ownership tax to $2 per new vehicle and $1 per old vehicle over the course of 4 years. When fully implemented, SO tax reductions cause a $900Million loss to counties, cities, school districts and special districts. Exempts first (4 comments)
I don't usually get political..... Part Deux - 10/05/10 05:51 PM
I promised I would do it. And I will. In fact I am right now! Ok, but first, my disclaimer: I don't give a rat's whisker whom you vote for, just INFORM YOURSELF and vote for (or AGAINST) something you truly believe in! Now, to the meat of the issue- why I don't support Amendments 60 and 61, and Proposition 101.... I truly believe that Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101 could effectively KILL Colorado's infrastructure and economy, so I am voting NO. The Breakdown on 61: Provisions and Potential Impacts Redefines government debt to include certificates of participation, lease-purchase agreements, (5 comments)
I don't usually get political..... - 10/04/10 07:42 PM
But I just cannot help myself. Here we go again with muckraking, finger pointing, and back stabbing. I am, of course, talking about my family reunion. Or maybe I'm talking about elections. Who can say anymore? Frankly, I don't give a rat's ...uhhh... whisker whom you vote for, just inform your self and vote for something you truly believe in. I truly believe that Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101 could effectively KILL Colorado's infrastructure and economy. The breakdown on 60: Provisions and Potential Impacts Allows those owning real property the right to vote on property tax questions Non residents can vote (4 comments)
Face it, we love Dos and Don'ts. In fact, for any of you who have ever read Glamour magazine, I'll bet the first thing you do is flip to the back page to see what atrocities they have captured to share with us all! And, men, I know you do this too. You go get the mail and upon setting it down accidentally let it fall open to the last page so you can laugh at it. It's ok, we won't tell your honey. But, there are a few things I have noticed in the world of Networking (23 comments)
