Practicing the scripts - 01/31/12 12:08 PM
I am not a big believer in canned scripts. Unless you are practiced and comfortable they sound like scripts. I do know that no one in this economic climate wants to be sold, but many are willing to buy if you provide them a reason to buy. That is what scripts are all about isn't it? Aren't scripts written out in such a way that you lead a client or prospect along a route that ends up with them saying yes along the way. At the end of the script is the close, or call to action that you also expect (6 comments)

Remembering Romance; Rejuvenation your Reality. Anguilla Real Estate - 01/25/12 08:31 AM
When the snow falls and my world is covered in white the stillness and quiet on the street gives me pause. The phone has yet to ring today as the sun rises, but I know it will. The second cup of coffee sits here on my desk cooling to my favored "lukewarm" temperature. I am looking for the buzz, not the heat. But it is the heat I am really looking for. It is the thoughts of my wife and the fun we have always had next to the ocean. It is the walks on the beach as the sun goes (8 comments)

Boston Back Bay Condo housing sales December 2011 - 01/24/12 11:05 AM

Architecture in Weston, MA 02493. Best Schools - 01/19/12 11:49 AM
Architecture in Weston, MA 02493. Best Schools 63 Westcliff Rd, Weston, MA 02493 Although it’s considered an art form, architecture isn’t driven by aesthetics. The constraints of technology at any given time set the basic parameters around which a house is built. Although center entrance colonials still remain popular today, their design was a result of the technology available when they were first conceived. Over time, their form has been tweaked to allow for modern conveniences and adjustments have been made to reflect more modern ways of living, but the basic design has remained essentially the same. Big leaps in technology (0 comments)
A warm beach and gentle breezes, dreams of Anguilla - 01/19/12 11:41 AM
Anguilla Beach Restaurant I woke up early thinking of the beach. It is always like this when the real winter shows up. The first couple of weeks where you are really considering pulling out that coat. But the NFL playoffs are on for the weekend and you keep that coat on it’s hook and dream of sunny beaches and why you work so hard. Vacations are the time you can bring the efforts of a time into focus from a more relaxed and intuitive perspective. Owning land, securing vacation property, creating a fractional partnership to own your own vacation home is (0 comments)
Vacation property is back and looking more and more like one of the best places to protect your long term assets. Self directed retirementaccounts I have spoken of before in this blog is one answer, but today I would like to share the benefits of Fractional Ownership. With fractional ownership you can get far more for your money. You get far more because you are pooling your money with others to acquire properties 2, 3, or more times the value you personally could afford.Because the cost is shared, you can get more. There has never been as good a time to (4 comments)
Localvore Boston: Grow it, Eat it, Sell it MLS# 71291235 - 01/14/12 10:41 AM
The localvore movement in Boston is strong. There are many farms thoughout the area that grow organic and other fresh vegetables that sell to many of the restaurants in the area. One of the difficulties a farmer faces is the setting up of the farm and the ability to get the correct permits for the land. Brockton has a farm that has come on the market with several parcels of land and an infamous home on the site for sale. Alger Street farm has been in operation for generations. There are 21 acres of land available and ready for planting for (7 comments)

Wayland, MA 01778 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 - 01/09/12 05:47 PM
The news has been overall good the last month or so. The National Association of Realtors, Mass association and Realtors and several other sources are reporting good statistics for the country. The Boston Area has done better through this downturn than most of the country, but these numbers last month for Wayland are dismal. With the Days on Market going up and up in almost all categories is not great news. Looking at the average list price of $1,408,863 and the sales and under agreement prices of $591,557 and $757000 you can see why some properties are just sitting.
Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 - 01/05/12 10:01 AM
Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 shows there were only 87 homes that show up in the Active, Under Agreement, Sold, Expired and Canceled lists for this month. That is down from the last couple of months. Reports in the media show that the slide of housing prices is coming to an end, something that Weston has seen already. With the election season upon us we can expect that there will be some work getting done in DC and that is good. Jobs and housing should be at the top of every politicians list. Now to the numbers.
