List a positive thing that has happened this week to keep our spirits high. - 09/13/08 12:04 PM
We read, see and hear such negative stories during the week which chips at our morale and is just depressing.

Closers make quick cash, Finishers make fortunes, which are you? - 09/12/08 07:37 AM
In the past 10 years of selling real estate I have read, watched and learn all about "The Close". From word games to analogies I have heard them all. We as Realtors are taught to close the buyer, close the listing, close the contract, get to the closing table and get to the bank with our commission before it closes for the day.

Well we got an offer on his past house and all was (18 comments)
"Short Sales" The Realtor Cure for the Common Foreclosure!! - 09/06/08 10:12 AM
"Short Sales" The Realtor Cure for the Common Foreclosure!! Now that the word "Foreclosure" is as common, as other less desirable words like "Cancer", "Teen Pregnancy" and "Child Neglect", it is time for us as a society to except it, take reasonability and fight it. Like all plagues; social and medical; at the beginning many ignore both the subject and those who are infected. But, in time the issue becomes so unavoidable that main stream society can not run, hide or avoid the problem. The foreclosure epidemic is NOW unavoidable. Everyone knows someone who is in, or will be in, foreclosure. (11 comments)
