ADOPTION in the REAL ESTATE MARKET - When a Door Closes, A Window Opens :) - 03/27/08 09:53 PM
On 8/27/09 we attended our local Board of REALTORS ( GNIAR )annual meeting at the Avalon Manor Banquet Hall located @ US 30 in Merrillville, IN. The statistics reported that day about the drop-out rate of REALTOR members in the last year (High of 2600 agents at one point in NW Indiana to current 2100+ and projected decrease to 1800 agents by 2010 )... reminded me of this BLOG I wrote last year ..... and how servicing the friends, family & clients of those who were once active collegues in our profession is very important!

This is just one in a series of Posts For Localism By Jeff & Grace Safrin, F.C. Tucker Realty, Serving Northwest Indiana...on HOMES SOLD IN A MARKET THAT's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD.... I heard this saying the other Day in CRS Class and giggled. I had never heard it before, and the Agent who was explaining it said that this saying: " First Born, Second Wife, Third REALTOR " has been referred to as the preferred order of things in Life! Although I don't agree with the phrase, it
brought to mind a successful transaction we closed on this year. We just happened to be the (9 comments)

In the last two years, I have been pursuing my CRS Designation.

Due to having the flu, I was unable to attend this afternoon's semi-final game :( I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the game on ESPN U. It did not take long to see what I was in store for, as I can summarize the Valparaiso Loss by their actions in 2 segments of this game: 1. The 1st 5 Minutes of the Start of the Game. 2. The 1st Five Minutes of the 2nd Half. Sad to say, Valparaiso's Crusaders were FLAT and Cleveland State Vikings were NOT. To start the game, Cleveland State hit what seemed to be every 3 (10 comments)
