Isn't this what you did when you were a kid? - 01/28/09 01:02 PM
Gotta love technology. So my kids have discovered a game online that even my 6 and 7 year old have gotten into. But just playing the game is not good enough. They play the game while talking over the internet to each other.
We've got a great program called Skype which is not only free, but allows you to talk to someone else for free. My oldest, Michael, started it all when he stared calling his friend from school over Skpe and they talk while playing their computer games. So then Isaiah and Emily got this great idea of talking to each other (0 comments)

The single family home sales mirrored the total residential - less sold in 2008 with the average (0 comments)
2008 - it was all about the attitude - 01/13/09 07:02 PM
So I'm finally able to sit down and reflect about 2008 and the upcoming 2009. (when January hit, my to-do list grew exponentially overnight!) I'm quite content with my sales volume in 2008. I sold over 2 million in sales, came in pretty high in my company, and managed to work part-time assisting the commercial realtor in our office as well. When I look back and think about what I can attribute my sales to, it isn't the thousands of cold calls made and doors knocked on. I didn't have radio and TV spots and big billboards.
