The Problem That Could Have Been an Opportunity - 03/31/09 10:36 PM
So the wife and were out eating at our local chicken restaurant the other day. This is the one that one of our major soft drink companies now owns. We like this place, although sometimes it actually kind of "feels" greasy. Anyway, we're at the restaurant for lunch. We've got our food and I go up to the counter to ask for some honey. While I'm waiting there to be helped, the little girl who is assembling meals say's, "Hey (name), we're out of biscuits!" Now she's got a real problem here. She's supposed to be putting everything together for waiting (3 comments)
Zillow and the Internet - 03/29/09 09:50 AM
Zillow and the internet for home buying. Good or Bad? In the world of real estate, many of us real estate professinals did not like Zillow's "Zestimates" when they first came out because they simply were not accurate. They tended to undervalue homes based on criteria that were not taken from real time market anaylis. I read a post on Active Rain recently by Jessica Horton in regards to Zillow and how they have publicly dealt with criticism of their formula for giving estimates for homes. Her post got me to wondering if they still use the same methods and if they are closer to reality these days or not. (1 comments)

The simple answer is that we just haven't had the demand on our housing market like other states have. And why is that? Well, the following pics might explain it...or at least a piece of it. Taken this morning, March 28th, 2009 7:30 a.m. from my garage. This is looking out from my (0 comments)
The Good Things that Real Estate Professionals Do for Clients - 03/27/09 10:56 AM
I'm sitting here writing this in a Word document in frustration as I wait for my wireless connection at my house to try to re-establish itself. Ah, there it is! The icon says we're connected! But wait...I go open Internet explorer only to find...nothing. It won't connect. My heart falls and my frustration level rises because I know what this means. I will call the cable company. I will listen to their forever long menu of choices. I will finally reach some live person who may or may not be in India somewhere. They will tell me to disconnect the power (6 comments)
