Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

I don't know anyone who is looking for a third Nor'Easter in a span of ten days. Nonetheless, another one is coming this evening and I am pretty tired of the song. I have a 7:30 AM appointment tomorrow and then another at 4 PM. I am hoping my Q5 can handle this and I can get home before the worst...
I worked at the Antique Gallery where I have a space. It was not a good day. When I came home I had a message from a friend that a mutual friend had died a week ago while caring for her husband who had been ill for as long as I knew her. I was shocked and very saddened by that news and the irony ...
In the winter, in the snow, the birds sometimes show themselves and often are magical to those who observe them. Yesterday I was able to see these. They were erudite, confident, and in charge. Some ran in packs, others stayed to themselves but whether in trees or on the ground, they all spoke to me.
I was torn as to whether or not to continue with a website since I am no longer actively listing and selling real estate. I tried not to let the the expense or my ego get in the way. So I finally divorced my old website and created a new one. I am still actively engaged in the business, training,...
This was some storm. It started slow but after noon it was snowing and blowing big time. At about 9:30PM on Wednesday night my plow guy arrived in the midst of it, and during the clean-up his plow broke in half. So that left him and his driver to shovel my driveway. The next morning you wouldn't ...
In my current life, referrals matter more than ever before because it is the part of the business I focus most on. That said, it has always been important to insure that referrals made are real, and that spending time making the right connection is crucial to insuring success. To that end it alwa...
Well it isn't wordless but it is awesome. This snow was late to come but it is here now for sure. In the last four and a half hours there is now about seven inches and coming down like the blazes. I'm happy to be in and warm and looking forward to dinner and a drink. My pups go in and out but I s...
Yesterday was beautiful here in the Berkshires. I was out early to have my taxes done. Ironically it wasn't finished but will be by next week. I had a lot of errands to run and then many things to attend to at home before the storm. I even took my oldest pup for a walk and carried him when he was...
Today my Go Daddy site renewed automatically for another five years. It was a lot of money and despite being offered three deals a week directly or on Facebook, there was no discount on my renewal which was automatic by default. I'm not an automatic person and today i knew why. So I called. If I ...
A week or so ago I wrote about the Critter Forecast. http://activerain.com/blogsview/5178512/the-critter-forecast When storms are being predicted the weather folks always speak to the different models: the European Model, The United States Model and others. Essentially while there is always unc...
