patricia feager: Texas Sky - 07/24/17 11:25 PM
By Patricia Feager
 
Today is Tuesday, 12:58 a.m. I can't stop thinking about the big, beautiful Texas sky. As of late, I am mesmerized, seeing amazing cloud formations, and gorgeous sunsets. I wonder what people are seeing on the other side of the globe? This shot was taken in Carrollton, Texas. It stopped me in my tracks. I wasn't the only one looking up or the only one taking photos. The following photo expresses my thoughts about deriving pleasure out of nothing but a cloud.

patricia feager: Something Learned from ActiveRain - 07/24/17 08:59 AM
by Patricia Feager, 7/24/2017
 
 
Earth, Water, Sky
 
Something I learned from Bob Stewart at one of his visits to the Marriott for a presentation of ActiveRain in Plano, TX several years ago, is that using photographs in a blog post is an effective way to get noticed with SEO. From that day on, I didn't just take photographs, I practiced as if I was preparing for the State Bar exam! Try, try, try, as I did, I felt that on ActiveRain there was always somebody better than me. To be clear, that was not Bob's intent to convey that message - it was MY interpretation. … (54 comments)

patricia feager: And the Day Came... - 07/15/17 10:57 PM
by Patricia Feager, 7/16/2017
 
 
 
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
--- ELIZABETH APPEL
 
 
 
Have you ever noticed that every flower embodies aspects of you,
your timidness; then hopes to blossom into something bigger
and brighter, more beautiful and shy, why?
 
The spirit of springtime comes alive when flowers bloom,
then tested by rain, wind, and fire. In the midst of
every other day flowers change from radiant to loneliness
just watch the petals hide their face, why?
 
Softness turns brittle over time, it's one of those changes
that can not  be denied, but why can't things stay … (88 comments)

MARKETING & INNOVATION
"Business has only two functions - marketing & innovation" --- Milan Kundera
 
As in any business, whether it's automotive or Real Estate, we manage the business but we have no control over the market, other people, or what drives the economy. To achieve long-term performance that is unmatched by competitors, we must adapt to market changes and stay innovative. A business owner simply can't run out of gas and expect the consumer to be loyal. That is the challenge to all business owners. In order to succeed, the business owner has to accelerate, and embrace technology using … (28 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 7/9/2017
 
 
Learning how to shoot wildlife photography with urban photographer Chris Jackson at the Dallas Arboretum on July 8, 2017 was fun and educational. Afterwords, I set off on my own to seek adventure at White Rock Lake Park located about five miles northeast of Downtown Dallas. Chris taught us that when photographing birds, look for the eye and capture the light. In this photo, I couldn't get the light or the eye of the bird; however, the photo spoke to me, reminding me of adversity - sink or swim.

patricia feager: A Gecko in the Mist - 07/07/17 02:27 PM
by Patricia Feager, 7/7/2017
 
 
While working in my garden, I discovered this little baby in the mist at the bottom of the tree. Using my creativity, and with the help of my camera and Ribbet, I put the gecko in a bubble for observation for the purpose of educating those who are not familiar with this lizard, a nocturnal creature, and to share some interesting facts. 
 
According to research, a gecko can measure about 1.6 to 60 cm or up to 24 inches. This one was so tiny, I believe it was a new born. It was so small, I had to wonder if … (20 comments)

PROFESSIONALLY CLEAN YOUR NEW HOME
Create a plan before the movers come to unload your furniture and possessions to professionally deep clean before you move in. The house may be vacant, it may look clean, but from a hygiene standpoint, is it really germ free? Germs can linger! You don't want invisible freeloaders. 
 
In a previous post I wrote on What Can I Do to Attract Buyers? I wanted to be sure prospective Buyers take precautions and cleaning seriously. If you don't have time to read my article, there's one take-away I'd like to share use nontoxic, environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and be … (52 comments)

While sitting behind a Pick-Up Truck at the stop sign waiting for the truck to move the other day, I couldn't help but notice the advertising for My Appliance but it was really the woman that caught my eye in that teased up hairdo flip, big earrings and poka dotted dress.
 
STOP - I thought to myself, how important is it today for women to follow the fashion trends whether that is in her kitchen or appearance? Gone are the days when you'd probably see a person like the one on the back of the truck but is appearance … (20 comments)

What Can I Do to Attract Buyers?
Make your home inviting, unlike any others on the market. You don’t have to mirror what you see on Reality Home Buying Shows. Remember, people are coming to see your home for a reason.  It may be because buyers want children enrolled in schools, location, neighborhood amenities, parks & recreation, shopping, easy transportation, to be close to family and friends, etc.

REFRESHING
Inside should look, smell, feel, and be fresh. Stay committed to operating an environmentally sustainable home. Keep in mind, you’re not entertaining guests, you’re enticing buyers to buy! Appeal to their … (7 comments)

F&Q - Part 5 of 5
 
What is the most important aspect of a Real Estate Transaction?
 
Communication is the most important aspect of purchasing a home. Our brains are lateralized and depending on whether a person is left brain or right brain, humans process information in different ways. The ability to remember what we see, hear, read, and write is critical to achieving success. Effective communication is necessary to feel comfortable.
 
Effective communication is a skill that takes practice to comprehend words, understand meaning, talk back with cogency, intelligence, and express feeling. Language has been evolving before we were even … (42 comments)
