I'm TIRED! - 09/23/09 09:41 AM
My family and I are major fans of the Mel Brooks movie "Blazing Saddles" we can recite a lot of it and do. There's a song in it called "I'm Tired" sung hilariously by the late Madeline Kahn. I keep thinking about it because I too am TIRED. There is a big bunch of buyer businees out there right now and I am working very hard, I"ve worked all weekend and late most evenings. I am going to keep right on doing that because I've been in this business long enough to know it does end! Last year we didn't have (1 comments)
Audit Results - 09/18/09 10:27 AM
Well we survived our audit. Hadn't been audited for awhile and had changed bookkeepers and brokers so we knew we were due. Sort of same old same old - bunch of small stupid mistakes - the kind we'd catch if we'd spend an extra 5 minutes going over things. There was one instance of conflicting information, auditor said one thing, continuing ed given by a member of the real estate commision said another. That too is normal. Now we can get back to selling real estate so there are tranactions TO audit! And it's FRIDAY! (2 comments)
AUDIT TODAY!!!! - 09/10/09 09:31 AM

For you non-realtors, the states in which we do business audit our transactions and books as we have a fiduciary duty to our clients - we handle other people's money. I'm not worried about my older tranactions, but the last week's are in chaos! I have been working with a client who writes two offers at once on quite a few properties. These are mostly low offers so are getting countered and rejected which makes a lot of documentation. AND I've been extrememly busy with other clients - ie meeting with one, (0 comments)
Fishing the Columbia! - 09/03/09 02:07 PM
We are back from what counts for us as a vacaton. We took a Wednesday through Sunday off! We took our boat and headed North. We had checked out the boat ramps etc on an earlier non fishing trip. We chose Hat Rock State Park near Umatilla Oregon. Beautiful park and a very easy to use and safe lboat ramp. This is the impoundment waters from McNary Dam just a few miles downriver. It was beautiful, fishing was good but the high point of the first two days was boating all the way to Richland Washington! Probably about 70 miles and (0 comments)
