"JUST LET IT GO"....The Most Important TIP You Can Ever get! - 10/16/11 06:33 PM
"JUST LET IT GO"...The most important TIP you can ever get! I can't explain why it works but "Just Let It Go" does have the recognition of being the one thing you can do in real estate to give yourself some control over a very difficult situation. Just recently, I have had situations that were impossible to bring to fruition. These have prompted me to write this post---hoping that it would open a dialog between all of us here on ActiveRain....Just how do we deal with the impossible mission of these circumstances??? What I have found is: If you "JUST LET IT GO!" you will (33 comments)

There is now a never ending supply of vacant, empty shells (Bloodless) rotting into the ground! (50 comments)
THE THIRD WAVE: Look Who's Going Into Foreclosure NOW!!! - 10/06/11 09:22 AM
THE THIRD WAVE: Look who is going into foreclosure NOW!!! There is going to be a Congressional hearing in the next day or so to evaluate the results of TARP on financial institutions and on the housing market...wonder what they will find out?---and what they will tell us??? I have heard rumors that some of the banks used their funds that were designated to help out the homeowners, to pay off their "bailout" money. One of the contingencies of the bailout was that the banks would remain under the microscope of the government as long as they owed the Tarp money. Some financial institutions paid off (169 comments)
WHEN THE TWINKLE IS GONE....One Man's Simple Statement Of His "Shattered Dreams" - 10/03/11 08:49 PM
WHEN THE TWINKLE IS GONE....One Man's Simple Statement Of His "Shattered Dreams" Inspired by Michael Morgan's post, Shattered Dreams I had to write this to help remind myself of the beginning. Maybe we all remember the start of our careers in real estate when we were full of hope and maybe even inspiration from a great, early real estate experience. On Friday, I read this post that sent me back to my early days in real estate; I was taken to a place that I am sure many of us in this profession have been before. Michael recalled a person--a polished, professional real estate agent that (26 comments)
