So it is hard to keep focused during the holidays. I guess in the years past I have just "checked out" during Christmas and New Years and felt I would jump back in after the New Year. The problem is that if you stop working it is hard to "catch up". So I am so grateful for the 31 day challenge to keep me going through the New Year and for helping me start my 2011 with a bang!

Google....a buyers tool! - 12/22/10 05:12 PM
I read an earlier post about doing a google search on your listings. That is great info and it is frustrating for other agents to claim your listings. But another way to use google is to "google" homes your buyer wants to put offers in on. This is especially helpful for the bank owned homes. You can find out all sorts of info on the home. I had one that had some big yellow blurb on the photo, turns out the home has had a termite tent. Another one we found out there had been a murder...ug that was a bad (3 comments)

Merry Christmas Money Saving Plans - 12/19/10 09:07 AM
I love how Gene really takes the time to find the Real Christmas with his family. We too have been scaling back and saving money. The reason for the season is not how much money you spend but how many memories you make. I remember we got socks and oranges in our stocking. It was tradition! I want to make our lives a lot less about money and more about relationships and love. I am going to take Genes tips and save some money this year!
