Well, she's gone.... - 02/28/11 02:59 AM
Well, my mother passed at 12:10 today, she went in her sleep and was comfortable. I knew she was going to go today, I went out to walk my little doggy and I just couldn't stop crying. I had already said my goodbyes to my mother two weeks ago and I was waiting for the inevitable. As I said I just couldn't stop crying, this was around 8:19 PM. Suddenly I just felt calm and everything was fine, but I also felt like I was just wandering around. She's gone now and she's comfortable, she's with my Dad, her mother and (6 comments)

It's been a tough week... - 02/16/11 12:04 PM
Well, my 81 year old mother was taken to the hospital on Sunday night. I received a call and found out that she had several seizures and she was in critical condition, it isn't looking good. I am terrible at hospitals, I just feel uncomfortable and I just don't like being there. THe last several times she was at the hospital for a brief stay I didn't even go. Am I a bad person? I love my mother to death--who doesn't love their mother! This is something I never expressed to her, we just were not the touchy feely type of (25 comments)

What does NO FEE Mean? - 02/04/11 06:18 AM
I am sorry to repost so many of these blogs post, but they are so true and have some great information--thanks Naked Apartments! What Does No Fee Mean?September 7th, 2010 by The Naked Apartments Team“No Fee!” That one little phrase makes every renter so excited, but why are only some apartments no fee? And why are the best apartments never advertised as no-fee? As a renter looking for your next apartment, you should understand the answers to these two questions.What’s a fee?A fee is the dollar amount owed to a broker when they help you find an apartment. ‘Fee’ is the (1 comments)
Broker's Fee -- $$$$ -- An Explanation - 02/04/11 06:07 AM
Here's another great post When you sign that fee check you may think to yourself, “wow, they’re getting a lot of money. I should become a broker!” But what most renters don’t understand is that a broker is usually not getting the full broker’s fee. And if you sign a no-fee apartment, the broker is not getting the full fee that your new landlord pays them. (Any apartment advertised as No-Fee just means the landlord pays the fee for you. Read more about this concept in our previous post, What Does No Fee Mean.)Instead of going entirely to your broker, the (0 comments)
Why don't brokers give you the address? - 02/04/11 06:01 AM

Why Brokers Don’t Share the AddressDecember 8th, 2010 by The Naked Apartments TeamRespondRenters often become frustrated/irritated/angry when a broker witholds the exact address of a building. To understand why, renters need to understand the broker’s perspective.When a broker discloses the address of an apartment, there’s a chance the renter bypasses them in order to avoid paying a broker’s fee.

What are the pros and cons? - 02/01/11 07:20 PM
So, if you have read my blog at all, yu are aware that I work in Jersey City and NYC doing apartment rentals. Many of the apartments I advertise are open listings, and a good deal of the inventory I have are our exclusive listings in the office. I would like to expand my inventory of apartments, I am going out and knocking on doors and contacting landlords. No takers yet, but I am sure I will get some of my own apartment listings. In the mean time I have gone thru the MLS and asked other agents if I can (1 comments)
