milwaukee county: Anticipation... Hope... Frustration... Disappointment. - 03/28/09 02:04 AM
Emotions are like the wind, they change regularly and with that change comes attitudes that can sometimes affect the decisions that we make every day.  Whether good or bad, our actions and decisions are usually the direct result of the mood that we may be in at any given time.
Have you ever worked with a client who, for whatever the reason, had mood changes that were so baffling that you didn't know how to react?  One minute they are happy and filled with anticipation on finding the perfect property only to have that happiness and hope turn into despair and frustration?

milwaukee county: Does Life Get In The Way Of Your Plans??? - 03/26/09 02:32 AM
The title of this blog is from an award winning song by John Lennon.   When you come right down to it, truer words could never be spoken.  Life does in fact get in the way of our plans.
Today is a day like any other.  I am sure that many of you got out of bed and began your day like every other day in your life.  Bathroom stop, think about the days activities, say good morning to family, or in the case of a single person, your pet, or if alone, just meditate on the days coming events.   In my … (8 comments)

milwaukee county: Lender vs Lender... The Short Sale. - 03/25/09 12:48 AM
I recently was asked to set up a showing with a lead from RE/MAX Lead Street.  Our companies way to distribute inquiries from the Internet.  I was pleased to oblige and immediately called the Lister to set up the showing request. 
I was somewhat amazed to hear the response from the listing agent.  Seems the first mortgage holder has allowed this property to be marketed as a short sale.  There is a second mortgage on the property also with a very nominal balance owed.  The property has had several offers which, according to the listing agent, are all very good offers considering the circumstances. 
I was … (2 comments)

milwaukee county: The Media and Panic - 03/08/09 03:12 AM
 
As I sit here watching "Meet The Press" this Sunday morning, I am amazed at some of the comments and verbiage that is being used in this economic crisis.  There are words such as:  Crash, Panic, Hysteria, Fear, Trepidation and many more that are causing to some degree, the current lack of confidence in our economic system. 
I have felt for many years now, our news media, as good and necessary as they are, have over the years Created the News rather than Reported the News.  And there is a difference. 
It reminds me of a story that goes something … (9 comments)

milwaukee county: The Jitters... Do you have them? - 03/06/09 12:33 AM
With the ever increasing trauma in the financial world, there are more and more individuals who are beginning to panic.  They are pulling their money our of the market with standing orders to sell all of their stocks.   At least this is what national headline news is saying.
It is true that there is more concern and panic in our economy than we have had in a long while.  Another announcement is that GM may be filing for bankruptcy.  Just heard it 5 minutes ago.
I have always been a very staunch supporter of the free economic system.  Supply and demand … (5 comments)

milwaukee county: A good day... A bad day. - 03/03/09 10:52 PM
Did you ever have one of those days when everything went your way and whoever you talked to or interacted with was positive?  Didn't that make you feel great?  If you are like I am, you probably became happier and in turn treated everyone around you differently.  You were more enthusiastic, joyfull and probably filled with anticipation. 
Happiness is contagious.  It sinks into our very being and the result of this is the feeling you give others. 
Just think if everyone around us were happy most of the time.  Just think of how we would feel and how we would then make all of those … (4 comments)

milwaukee county: It's Saturday. Do you know where your customers are? - 02/28/09 06:11 AM
The weekend is upon us and here we are.  Spending that much needed time relaxing, watching TV, wasting away the hours until that dreaded day, Monday once again passes through our life.
Is this how you feel?  Do you wish the weekend would never end?  Then, my friend, you are in a career that needs to be changed. 
Everyone of us is hopeful that the economy will take a turn for the better sometime during 2009.  It may and then again, it may not.  What are you going to do in the meantime? 
In a prior career, I found that my … (3 comments)
