Our goal is to provide entertaining information which agents can use and which both buyers and sellers will find useful. Sometimes we'll provide crazy stories from our years of practice.



It seems like there's always some basic maintenance around the house that needs to be done.  My brother, being a thinking man, came up with the following great ideas while he was extracting toys from the toilet one day.  Here's a list of his helpful household tips: Avoid cutting yourself when sli...
While reading the internet this morning, it came to my attention that the USA has been infected by a wide variety of virus strains and this why the economy seems to be getting worse rather than better.  Here are a few of the possible candidates: Government Virus - It just keeps getting larger and...
Sometimes people do funny things.  They usually don't mean to do them, but apparently they just can't help themselves.  Generally speaking these acts are predicated on some misconception or another.  Here's an example of what I mean: An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report tha...
Desire to purchase an item is often influenced by the price.  If we perceive something we want or need as a bargain, then it becomes relatively easy to justify the expenditure.  In our society, it's mostly the case that people need and expect to have a roof over their heads.  Sure we have dedicat...

I was thinking about the nature of the Universe the other day.  I know, I know.  It's an unusual subject for a real estate agent and I can assure you that my wife thought I'd be better off thinking about how to generate more listings. I guess whether or not you find it interesting depends on your...
Working in real estate, we find that we usually do most of our work ourselves.  Oh, sometimes we request the secretarial staff to do things for us, but usually it's easier to do it ourselves.  We used to have an assistant and she was very helpful, but she left us after several years in order to a...
