Feel The Weight On Your Shoulders? Schedule Meeting With Self! - 09/30/08 10:17 PM
I have to admit I've been feeling the weight on my shoulders lately. Recently I have had to rethink many things in my life. I've had to make some tough decisions..good sound decisions not only for myself but for many. On most days, I am busy typing away and blabbing like there is no tomorrow..I run here and there and truthfully by the end of the day..I'm tired just whipped. Not physically tired but without a doubt more like mentally drained. There are things that I notice about myself, I tend to absorb my environment and the energy around me..and sometimes (24 comments)

Short Sales-Think About The Big Picture! Can You Really Sell This Property? - 09/24/08 07:15 AM
"Please list my property...I'm behind on my payments and I am not sure what to do!" As I asked my series of questions, I got the feeling...I won't be listing this property..not because I can't.... simply because I won't due to disservice..due to discrepancies....and due to untruths. Now the particular property that I am talking about is not a house...but a condo. A few that are short sales and a few foreclosures but the rest are sellers just wanting to sell..but the odds are against them. When there are 18 units available in one complex and you add another to the (11 comments)
Creepy Crawlers...The Things This REALTOR Will Do To Earn A Commission - 09/23/08 08:03 AM
Recently I have stepped into a short sale to get it to closing..as a matter of fact finally we were able to place the property in pending status..because we received our approval letter. HOORAY! Now keep in mind the seller has NO money..otherwise they would probably not be in the position they are in today! No they were not frivolous...nor made a bad investment...it's health issues..plain and simple even with insurance...the cost of medications..need I really say more?
One of the requests the buyer had was pretty simple...get the pool cleaned up, right? Well think again. My first day (15 comments)

IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE MARKET TAKES YOU OUT! - 09/20/08 04:30 PM
How many times have you heard an agent rudely say?...I've been in this business for xx amount of years...or Why isn't your short sale pending or attempt to correct you and end up making a fool of themselves because they do not know what they are talking about?...imagine that..and there is that slim...slim...chance you might become the co-operating broker..oh did I say that? Cooperating Broker.. I doubt it..because I believe..cooperating was never the true intent. Often times agents behave in the same way they see their markets..often times..some get so frustrated..they are rude..not focused...and extremely obnoxious and we question why the (56 comments)

I Endorse This Message-Vote Responsibly! - 09/18/08 06:44 AM
Recently I have had much interest in the Presidential Election. More so this year than any other election....to me this year...our votes really count. I have actually heard of people not planning on voting..due to the choices of our candidates and that disturbs me. You think your vote does not matter...but truly every vote counts and your voice should be heard. Now I am not about to get into politics but I am going to send a message out...when you make that decision to vote..its for 4 years...it will impact your life..your children's life...and world in which we live.

Celebrate Your Real Estate Success- Ahh Cocoa Puffs! - 09/17/08 07:07 AM
Ahh Cocoa Puffs! Remember that crazy bird! He was a part of my children's lives while they were growing up and evidently the crazy bird impacted me and still affects me today. Yesterday while sitting with a new associate we had many interruptions..it normally doesn't happen but yesterday it did. As a trainer...I have moments...where I am so excited...excited enough to yell ahhh cocoa puffs..I celebrated..another real estate success. Recently there has been a team of us working to get a short sale done..while in the midst of my training..I got the call..congratulations...your short sale contract was accepted...and within 72 hours (15 comments)
Do You Think You Appeal To The People On The World Wide Web? - 09/14/08 06:16 AM
I've been reading a lot of junk recently...yes in my not so humble opinion it's junk and in the grand scheme of things really so much of it is so unimportant! Yes I know it's important to get our messages across..its important to make our own marks on the net and we try very hard to get our share of the web..but are you really? With extreme opinions...extreme rants...and extreme public views... you think you are opening doors when in reality you may be shutting many because you fail to remember it is the world wide web.

Survey Says: Real Estate Is A People To People Business - 09/12/08 11:23 AM
Have you ever taken a look at your most popular posts? How would you gage them..comments? Featured? Business gained? Your phone ringing...Some would say its all the above. I agree sorta..but I think its more. While the Activerain Real Estate Network is about real estate...people enjoy reading a wide variety of things...and maybe not necessarily....topics of real estate. For those that swear only real estate should be written here...readers feel differently and you may want to think again.
It really surprised me...and it may surprise you. Recently I learned that less than one percent of people on the net..will (31 comments)

One Little Box....A Very Good Friend..The Generosity of Activerainers - 09/10/08 07:10 PM
Have you ever been really drawn to someones avatar? It happens to me often..not in the way that someone looks but the warmth I feel from the photo. One of my good friends on the rain is Don Rogers who sells real estate in Missouri. We've had the opportunity to speak a few times and every time I learn something new about him. Monday I had the blahs..its been a very hectic few weeks...before I left a little box arrived..I opened it and it was from Don Rogers..let's just say I had a big smile on my face with teary eyes...instantly (5 comments)
Censorship-Your Children-Protect The Future! - 09/09/08 11:55 PM
This will probably not be a popular post but it is not about being popular or right..it's some thoughts I want people to consider especially if you are raising small children. Observations that I have recently made.. Last night while working on my profiles I was creating a new play list. It's great type in a song or artist and usually you can find what you want. For me I have to listen to the entire song. I want my music to match my blogs and for me I try very hard to keep the rating G..anyone can view my blog..of (18 comments)

The history of the Daytona Beach Area Association of REALTORS can be traced back as far a 1922. It was in 1922 the Daytona Beach area received its charter from the national and state governing bodies. With less than 20 members they struggled on the same issues that we face today. Attracting industry, yes we need commerce desperately, promoting tourism.. Yes we still are known for the World's Most Famous Beach and the most important issue then and still remains.. To improve the quality of life for our residents. Although we have our trials and tribulations right now.. (6 comments)
Touching Lives One Person At A Time-My Legacy Online - 09/08/08 07:42 AM
Have you ever reflected on the game of life, not the board game but the journey we all go through? With bumps and forks all the way..I know one thing...no one ever promised me a rose garden! For me there is little to blame...because really as we age...we tend to get smarter...and wiser..and a little more tolerant.
Some people go the opposite direction...blaming everyone else for the world's problems... Narrow minded... ignorant..much more critical...and most of all bitter...and do nothing...absolutely nothing.. Well except create a little noise in our terrible...terrible world. I don't seem to view the world this (34 comments)
Shortsale Sellers-Mortgage Fraud-Use Those Words Carefully! - 09/07/08 08:10 AM
Mortgage Fraud -Think and use these words carefully if you are a short sale seller! I say this because I have seller's calling me from all walks of life...from different states...with different situations..short sale situations and some sellers choose the words mortgage fraud! When I hear mortgage fraud...I ask immediately...have you called an attorney? In most instances..a REALTOR is the first person they call..and in some instances its just been me!
My advice to sellers: Be very careful using the term mortgage fraud..you may in fact implicate yourself! Seek the advice of an attorney..especially if you have..a stated income loan...or (16 comments)

Are You A Walking Contradiction? - 09/05/08 07:47 AM
Last night I was viewing posts and profiles...you know checking out some of the different widgets Activerain members use. I will say that I am not an SEO expert...but if you check out some of the profiles on the rain...it will surprise you the places you will find people...the widgets that they use and the use of their key words.
The computer scientist and I were chatting about copyscape...and as I was viewing blog posts...I noticed..not only are people using copyscape..but are allowing reblogging at the same time. Isn't that a contradiction? I don't think I want to risk..reblogging (13 comments)
