Who would do such a thing... buy a house without seeing it?  Well, I have three stories for you about people who did exactly that.   A few years ago, one of my Crofton MD seller-clients was retiring and investing her nest egg in a home thousands of miles away in Canada - without seeing it, unless...
Just a little food for thought:  FOLLOW THE MONEY!In a Seller's Market, listing is the name of the game.  In a Buyer's Market, selling is the name of the game.  It's as simple as that.  A Buyer's Market, like we're experiencing today, is a good time for agents to target renters, investors, reloca...
 Ahhhh... the good ol' days...   Who doesn't think fondly of them?   Happy memories of growing up, friends, family, and even some "things" - old photographs, that souvenir from the high school prom, or trophies from our glory days.In real estate, I probably qualify as well as anybody to talk abou...
IS THERE A MAGIC FORMULA FOR SELECTING A FARM? Of course there is a magic formula!  That's one of the reasons why some agents' farms are more successful than others.  You just can't expect to earn a living by mailing to 250 homes with a 2% turnover rate.  "I live here, so I farm here" is NOT the ...
Do you ever take past clients for granted?  I confess, I'm embarrassed to admit it, I sometimes do.  (But that's going to change in the next few days because I'm going to reach out and "hug" my past clients!)That realization is just one of the many "lightbulb moments" I experienced this week when...
DVICE FOR NEW AGENTS: In my market area, we have a formula that works very well for everyone involved in an Agent Open House Tours - listing agents, open house guests and our home seller clients, not to mention the eventual buyers who are the real target of our efforts. Jessica Pineda inspired th...
Your real estate connection for Anne Arundel County, Maryland - Home of Fort George G. Meade, Northrop Grumman, BWI and the U.S. Naval Academy  Have you ever heard of GRIST?  Don't feel too bad - I never did either, until I read that the University of Maryland has been named to their Top 15 Green...
About ten years ago, I asked the selling agent at a settlement on one of my listings how he found such a GREAT interest rate for his client.  He passed me a business card for Chris Washburn at FNMC, a division of National City Mortgage Company (NCMC).  When I called Chris a few days later, he imm...
Okay, I've been doing this ActiveRain thing for several months, now, and I've developed some routines.  Let's share, because I could probably learn from YOUR ideas, and somebody might like mine.  What do you think?  Wanna play?  I'll start with Associates and My Home: Associates - I organized my ...
 Reaching 50,000 points is a lot like celebrating a birthday.  The points, like years, just add up, and before you know it... there you are celebrating a milestone with the people who helped you get there.Apathy marked my early days on ActiveRain.  I don't even remember accepting Carolyn Nelson's...
