Virus on Laptop! - 03/29/07 03:55 PM
For the last couple of days, the DSL connection inside of the offices have been up and down. It seemed that every time I wanted to access the Internet to change a listing, add a blog, or check on the updates to www.Paris911.com, it was down. I was a bit upset. But before I reacted too hastily, I contacted the building super to ask him if he has been having any problems with the Internet connection, or has it just been my office. He told me it is not localized and that the entire building was infected. It kept happening, and the (7 comments)
"Did You Get That Thing I Sent Ya?" - 03/29/07 03:41 PM
So, a real estate transaction by e-mail? Well I was dealing with a San Fernando Valley agent just recently, and not one document was sent via fax. Everything was either USPS or scanned and e-mailed. What is really great about the scanning and e-mail way is that all is accounted for. You can even coordinate your e-mail to ask the recipient to notify you of when the mail is opened. (about as clear as mud). Want to send multiple scanned pages, then make a zip folder with the contents. Just highlight the files you want to zip together, choose "send to", then (0 comments)

Get ready at 1530hrs, uniform up, practice drawing from my holster, make sure I was all together, put on my helmet, turn on my blue-tooth, and mount up and leave home to do the 23 mile drive to VTD in Van Nuys. Along the way keeping constant watch around me to make sure, 1. I was not being followed, 2. Make sure I was not being staged upon, 3, Make sure I did not look around too much (2 comments)
The Secret - 03/09/07 01:29 PM
Quite often people approach me while I am in my office actively working to sell the listings that I have. I have an open door policy and never discourage anyone from coming inside, taking a seat, and talking about how I do it, and how they can do the same. I am one of those that believe that there is enough business in the Real Estate market for everyone. The questions have increased from before, when I was an active and full-time police officer. Now those that did not speak with me before, have now seen that I left a (6 comments)
