ethics: ETHICS MORALS AND CHARACTER - 06/20/15 09:55 AM
I have seen ethics stretched like taffy as I traveled through the Real Estate industry over the years. I have seen it up close and from a distance too. Wherever there are large sums of money to be made or handled, human nature is put on notice. Either we help steward it along or help ourselves to it and get stewed!
EVERYONE GETS CAUGHT INSTANTLY
The minute someone crosses over into the dark realms of doing or getting something at all costs, they have been caught right there and then. Whether or not it becomes public or not is another matter. But the error is instantly revealed in the … (7 comments)

ethics: I CAN USE THE MONEY TOO - 06/03/15 04:49 PM
When it comes to a commission, I see where it all can be mine and I see where some of it can be mine and I also where some can be yours too. When things get tight, and there are many reasons to cause that, people start coming from scarcity and I am not one to question another needs. That's their private business however...
MAKING REAL ESTATE MOVES
There are incidents in this business where double-ending, doing pocket listings and offering a poor split becomes more than a temptation. It becomes a way of life and many succumb to it. I remember when I … (18 comments)

ethics: LOW COMMISSION EQUALS NO SHOWING? - 05/24/15 09:25 AM
What an interesting subject matter this is. It crosses over into ethics, honesty, fiduciary, fair and honest, financial dealings and just plain out making a living. However, there has to be a right way to proceed that supersedes all opinions. I am going to tell you what that is and you are going to say it makes sense...BUT
SERVICING THE CUSTOMER
It is called customer service. We are for sale, for hire and offer services to help buyers, sellers, investors and the like; to form, shape and then carry out Real Estate centered activities. Who but agents in the business that move hundreds of thousands … (130 comments)

ethics: ESTATE REAL? - 05/23/15 06:54 AM
What strange two words this title of the post. Estate Real is when an owner of Real Estate is where they want to be and when asked what their status is, they comply by saying the state of my status is real. I just made that up as an example of why you may need an agent who uses a high degree of ethics to rep you. Let me explain
CAN I HELP YOU?
Take any subject you are not familiar with and it is "deer in the headlight" material until you can make out just exactly what it is or is not. Until then, … (2 comments)

ethics: REAL ESTATE DYAMICS - 05/14/15 07:09 AM
Real Estate is an interesting arena to enter into for all. It has personal and professional components to it. On one side is the business aspects of it that includes serious paperwork and time-lines while the other side presents the human nature side of it. Then, a few things stand out quite well as follows....
THE PARCELS
No two properties are the same. Even if they are built identical side by side, the sun, wind, approach and even direction makes it unique to its setting. Each property has an identity and people can alter that footprint in many ways to create value or even devalue as well. Once … (5 comments)

ethics: REAPING WHAT YOU SOW IS NO MYTH - 04/14/15 05:08 PM
To identify one's moral compass early on in life and learn to listen to it makes for not only for more pleasant sailing, but deep restful guilt-free sleep too. People who shortcut using the lie, cheat and steal systems get what they bargained for every time. Why? You reap what you sow
LYING TAKES NO EFFORT
You see it is so easy to make things up, distort, twist or hold back information. With little or no effort, you can lie and deceive and get away with most anything. Of course, you don't realize you are on borrowed time as you leave … (11 comments)

ethics: CLIENT SAYS YOU CAN SELL IT BEFORE WE LIST IT - 04/14/15 06:37 AM
I have a high-price listing for a nice product, good part of town, priced right and in immaculate condition. It is also a custom home with one of kind dynamics including special zoning and even a rental unit. The owner wants it picture perfect before we go MLS. He says to me, if you can sell it before we go and get paid more, its okay with him
SOUNDS GREAT
I have a structure in place where we will cooperate with buyer agents and another dynamic that says if I find a buyer on my own, it becomes more rewarding for both me and … (7 comments)

ethics: TWO PEARLS SERIES BOOKS HELP TO CREATE ONE LOVE - 03/31/15 04:56 PM
Finally, by popular request and much effort, the book about men, boys, males and worse is available for order right now. WHEN WILL MEN COME BACK AGAIN will take its place among the library of books on life, love, intimacy and purpose popularly known as PEARLS FOR THE SOUL books. Several years ago when the PEARLS SERIES released its well received book on women and girls in all situations and experiences, the clamor went out for a man-book! We heard you!
It started with.....
PEARLS FOR GIRLS DATING WAITING & SEX...IN SEEKING CUPID...DON'T BE STUPID

ethics: WHY WON'T CAR SALESMAN COME CLEAN? - 01/25/15 07:29 AM
I learn as I go in life but when I come across a subject of interest, I research it even more... so I become familiar with it and it reduces stress when on the learning curve if I am to enter into it. I have bought many new cars in my lifetime and it is always an us versus them if you don't do your homework. The Internet today makes it easier. But those salesman?
ETHICS DOESN'T PAY BILLS
It doesn't matter how honest, forthright or transparent a buyer is when going into this arena. NO. It is the dealer and their representatives that need to … (11 comments)

ethics: A FRIEND WOULDNT DO THAT - 01/07/15 11:52 AM
I worked with a nice fellow (non-licensed) for a few years never having an occasion to butt heads. We both had lots of work and activity to keep us busy enough and I want to add that we were professionals about how we conducted ourselves. Then, one day out of the blue, my friend got a promotion. I was happy for him
REALLY REAL......REAL ESTATE
He was worthy of the rewards of working hard. One day he says to me rather irritably, I need you to look up some things on the MLS. I said sure but it wont be until … (5 comments)

ethics: ETHICS AND MORALS WORK WELL UNTIL THEY DON'T - 11/20/14 07:09 AM
During the World Wars which were new to everyone all over this planet, you were never to cooperate with the enemy upon being captured. However, it was decided at some point that name, rank and serial number was relevant and necessary. On anything else no matter how trivial, you were told to clam up!
EASIER SAID THEN DONE
That was the rule and men lived by it out in the open but in secret and circumstances, another dynamic took place. They were tested on these beliefs.Torture changed all that and men broke and talked. Shamed for the conduct but also perplexed as to … (2 comments)

ethics: THE LENN INN - 10/30/14 04:41 PM
This is a selective place to stay in and only the chosen get the privilege. Lenn Harley has it set-up so that if one of her clients has to have a place to stay during a transaction scheduled to close, she lets them stay in her home. Yes, you heard me right. Its not in the Realtor code of ethics, you wont find it on a Real Estate test either.
NOTE: if the prince in the beauty and the beast story would have answered the door and behaved and did what Lenn did, the beast would not be. No story! The old lady … (11 comments)

ethics: WHAT KIND OF AGENT ARE YOU - 10/22/14 11:53 AM
Not just the buying or the selling kind, but how you do business. What are some of things you stand for and stand up for? There are many ways to do business. Often ethics is over-looked in advertising and marketing but that is the core of the transaction. Trust runs the show along with honesty and truth.
BUSINESS AS USUAL
I knew of several wealthy men who when doing business in Real Estate completely disregarded the morals aspects of it and instead put winning at all costs as the prime directive. Well who would argue with that? I would if you … (7 comments)

ethics: AGENTS DISCIPLINE YOURSELF OR SOMEONE WILL - 09/18/14 12:44 PM
The first part of the year started out pretty quiet. That told me that something was brewing for sure. Sure enough, when it rains it sometimes pours.  Now, I am busy with complaints coming before me as I sit on the professional standards hearing panel. Agent versus agent, broker vs broker, public versus all and no one is wrong?
WE HAVE A MELTDOWN
I have been doing this for years. One thing that stands out is the poor communications between the parties especially when they don't agree. Instead of upping the communications, problem solving and expanding on the different points of view, a total breakdown … (9 comments)

ethics: FIRST MEET EXPECTATIONS - 07/15/14 12:16 PM
Keep your promises. In business or personal realms, that is the first order of the day, business or task at hand. Whatever you put forth effort into has to come full circle and meet your efforts with a result making it all worthwhile. What ever we are selling, telling or representing must take place and then another optional world opens up
EXCEEDING THE PROMISE
Exceeding someones expectations. Wowing them. Making it so that they are compelled to repeat and share the experience with someone else because that is the impact it has had on them. To be able to get someone else to willingly support … (10 comments)

ethics: PLUMBER PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE - 07/09/14 11:06 AM
I was talking with an ACE plumber I mean one of the best in the business who knows all things plumbing and has a high work ethic too. Add to that he is well organized, has a big truck, tools and supplies and if that isn't enough, he doesn't gouge. That's right, he is the standard for his industry. His bar is so high that when a part time plumber stands next to him, you see the difference right away
HE SUCCEEDED
He was telling me how he was wanting to retire and shift into another mode of living. No longer does he have to work … (2 comments)

ethics: WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR BAR? - 06/17/14 07:02 AM
NO not that bar, but the high one...you know the one that measures how you believe and do business. It is your standard of practice, your principals, your stand on the virtues of life and your position when it comes to ethics. Keeping a high bar of operation and beliefs can be costly too
CAREER CRIMINALS?
We all want to do the right thing. None of us get up in the morning looking for ways to beat the systems (unless you are a career criminal) but instead we look and create opportunities of which we can seize and turn into success stories. People who operate with integrity, … (32 comments)

ethics: REAL ESTATE AGENTS ARE PAID FOR PERFORMANCE - 06/05/14 12:55 PM
Real Estate agents only get paid if they are successful. That's why no one should hesitate signing up with an agent.  You see Real Estate agents only get paid when there is something to pay them for...Most agents work very hard to help bring their clients instructions full circle.
WHAT DRIVES THE DEAL
The moving thrust of a Real Estate transaction is comprised of two things...Ethics and results. To the client, a sacred relationship called fiduciary takes place where the agent looks after every little thing that can favor the client PLUS protect them from unnecessary exposure or harm
MOST BUT NOT ALL

ethics: HOW TO SPOT PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENTS - 06/02/14 05:01 PM
In every profession, there are people who stand out and they are called professionals. Professional defined: one who has special education, who possesses distinctive qualities with confidence, one who practices their highest being....all these convey an extraordinary person in their field. A person who becomes a professional has developed themselves into a marketable value
PRO...for short
A professional or a real pro as we call them earned the meaning of the above words. They live them. When you see a anyone practicing traits as described, you are moved to recognize a professional at work whatever field of endeavor they are … (60 comments)

ethics: YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING UNTIL - 04/02/14 10:25 AM
You are examined and questioned about it. That's why the prisons are full. People questioned someones actions and behaviors and found them so wanting that criminal charges were filed. Another arena that causes one to sober up quickly in is the civil arena. When you get called into this, its not good
THE FINE LINE
This is what happens when a human being crosses over into the forbidden territories ethical and other wise. In the earthly parlance, it is called temptation and a few other names too. Many a good and decent person has been over come from these dynamics. It is so subtle too
