It's that time of year again. Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the other Holidays that are what real memories are made of. Kind of. Each year I get a dozen or so Holiday cards in the mail. They bring happiness to my heart when compared to the countless spam emails I get from companies wishing me a...
Yesterday a buyer asked me a question that he challenged me to ask in my real estate blogs. Do democrats make better loan officers? Do they have access to special programs?My answer was, "I don't see how it could matter."The lending process does not empower a loan officer to push any special butt...
I have always been a fan of saying Happy Holidays. But let me clear, it isn't because I am afraid to offend anyone, it's because the saying (in my opinion) is inclusive of Thanksgiving, Christmas, (all other cultures days of worship) New Year's Eve, New Years Day, The National Championship game, ...
Selling your home while tenant occupied should not be a battle or obstacle that prevents you from getting your home sold. I have been in the unfortunate situation of dealing with this multiple times over the years. Here's what I've learned and what I would suggest to alleviate this problem going ...

In case you weren't spared: Five Things Kanye West Can Teach Us About Real Estate.  Let me be very clear, Kanye has rolled in wa...
Halloween is a time for kids and grown-ups who want to have some fun. We all know what it includes: costumes, candy, treats, and Facebook postings and maybe a few egged houses. If there's one thing that makes me want to hide as a Realtor it's when agents hand out candy with their business card.As...
Recently I helped a client rent a newer built home. Unbeknownst to the both of us, the water smelled like rotten eggs. A home inspection isn't part of the process when you're considering moving forward on a rental property. To say this could have been known before the contract was signed is hardl...
Over the years I have held and attended hundreds of open houses. Some are fantastically boring and others are incredibly fun - depending which builder is giving away the wine, catered food and bizarre entertainment. I once witnessed a guy who stayed in a frozen position for 10 minutes at a time. ...
I have an American Express Credit card with USAA. One of the perks is a free "Home Value Monitoring System." The service is about as useful as a Zillow Zestimate. Basically it's unreliable and should not be used to determine anything. The value of my home is actually 10% higher than the "VALUE" t...
