Capital Market Reports out today, Consumer Confidence - 03/30/11 10:01 AM
There has been some disturbing news out in the recent cycle. The Republicans are trying to do away with HAMP and have voted to repeal it. It is unlikely the Senate will pass the bill, but if they do the President will surely veto the measure. HAMP may or may not be a good program, we will never know because the lenders are not using it. The lenders are reluctant to help the homeowner either on their own, or with government help. On another issue the results nationally on the housing market were the worst they have been in 20 years. (2 comments)

Answering the Call. NOT! - 03/25/11 07:57 AM
I started my real estate career in Dallas and soon learned a lot of what never to do. I came back to Boston and started anew and have learned that bad habits are everywhere. At the top of the list of bad habits is not returning phone calls. I have no idea why any professional thinks not returning a phone call, or email right away is a good business practice, and yet many do. It is the single most criticized issue that people have about real estate people. When I was in Dallas at the beginning, our lead generation tools were (10 comments)

Soon to be listed: Back Bay, A Place for Children - 03/17/11 08:14 AM
Children from the suburbs usually don’t walk as much. Our mantra was “we can’t park any closer than our garage”. Often children that come in to the city to visit need to rest every couple of blocks or so. Other parents in the city have remarked on it in their experience also. When we go out to eat we walk, when we go to the movies we walk, when they go to after school activities we walk, when they go to school we walk, when they go to friends houses, we walk. That’s a lot of exercise! We particularly enjoyed Hill (5 comments)

You can invite family and friends to see what they think and then later bring some business partners down for meetings to see how the home functions in this situation. We are absolutely sure that (3 comments)

Viceroy Anguilla Resort Couple Luxury, as it is defined in Caribbean terms, has a meaning of relaxed, casual and taking the time to enjoy. It is not about uptight services and marble this or that, although you will find that should you look. Anguilla real estate is defined by it’s beautiful beaches and its turquoise ocean. A short flight from New England once you land on the island it may take you all of an hour to realize you are not in Manhattan anymore. You are not on the South East Expressway or sitting in some glass enclosed, forced air lock (4 comments)
Decision Time Decision making is part of what defines a successful career. Yes, you need to have rules that you don’t redefine with every turn of the whim, but how we communicate and what we say in those communications does change over time, especially with the internet moving at light speed. There is no need to rehash the truth about how the internet has changed real estate. While it will always remain a person to person business in the end, the starting line has moved to the web. If you are not there you will be gone, simple as that. (8 comments)
