It Was the Worst of Years, It Was the Best of Years - 04/24/08 12:54 PM
The Best of Years, The Worst of YearsWow, has it been one heck of a ride since a year ago April. Last spring I was less than six months back into my real estate career after a 3 year maternity leave. I had been managing a company for over a decade and would now be "back in the trenches" as an agent. Things were going well, business was building and commissions were slated to come in. Just then, my husband announced he wanted a divorce and left immediately. To make matters worse, when I went to pay mortgages, I discovered that (7 comments)
Any of you with young children (mine are 7 and 3) know that line from the Wonderpets program. It is a wonderful message for young and old alike and one that I like to bring into my business plan. I worked for over a decade as a manager of a family owned real estate company in Westfield, Massachusetts. As such, I got really good at training and delegating. Now, working as an agent at Park Square Realty in Westfield, I still find that managerial personality comes to the front. Because of this penchant, I have found teaming up with other agents (4 comments)

So, I finally got my own home in Westfield, MA sold, the cooperating agent is totally terrific, the buyers love the house and can't wait to get in...now the only thing left is for me to get OUT! PODS to the rescue! After researching the moving options in Western Massachusetts I order up the largest storage unit PODS offers and start loading it up. How excellent to not have to hustle everything out the door at once. Things are looking good until I find out that I cannot move to my new residence across Westfield until two weeks after the closing on my home....ahhh (1 comments)
Spring Cleanup, Western Massachusetts Start Your Engines! - 04/11/08 10:15 AM
WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS... get ready to see those spring flowers! The snow is gone, the trees are budding, the bulbs are emerging and it is time to get your gardens ready for the show. We had a late leaf fall last year, so if you are anything like me, your gardens still have a lot of leaf covering. Time to get those up and let the perennials and bulbs feel the sun shining. My gardens in Westfield will need a good couple of hours of raking to get all those leaves out! It is also a perfect time to plant some pansies...these friendly flowers (2 comments)
THE BEST REAL ESTATE ASSISTANTS IN THE BUSINESS! That's right, they are my children...but don't let those cherubic and youthful looks fool you, these are some sharp girls in the workplace. At the ripe ages of seven and three they: put out mailings, accompany showings, monitor home inspections, attend listing appointments, join my buyers at walk throughs, make photocopies, fax documents....you name it! Being a single mom in business is a tricky thing, but I am thankful for being in real estate so I can have the flexibility and control over my time and the way I do business. I used to worry aobut the impression it would make if (4 comments)
