It is Monday morning and I have a plan for my week. It is a good life! - 10/27/08 10:40 AM
I am a fan of Brian Buffini and I have been with him for the past year and half. I kind of get excited when I receive his box of goodies each month because it gives me a system to work with so I can generate business. Phones have been dead so I have to do this.

My buyers are not returning my calls. - 10/25/08 02:52 PM
I have been working with these first time home buyers for a while. They appear motivated and serious. We have seen around 50+ homes together and wrote on three banked owned properties and none were ratified until recently. I was very excited for them when the bank agreed to our very aggressive offer and they were so pleased when they heard the news so what happened! I have been calling them for the past two days because I have to get the bank addendums signed by them but they are answering my calls.

ARE WE HEADING IN TO THE PERFECT STORM? A REAL ESTATE STORM.......... - 10/20/08 05:27 PM
Real Estate Storms are created when a center of the housing market develops, with a system of bad loans surrounding it. This combination of opposing forces can create turmoil and result in the formation of housing storm , such as short sales, and foreclosures. The phrase perfect storm originates from the 1997 book which refers to the simultaneous occurrence of weather events such as Ice storms, Blizzards, Ice storm, hurricane, tornado, hailstorm which, taken individually, would be far less powerful than the storm resulting of their chance combination. Such occurrences are rare by their very nature, so that even a slight change in any one event contributing (5 comments)
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past. By Patrick Henry - 10/13/08 11:57 AM
It is very easy to get discouraged in today's world with the stock market, the elections, the economy, jobs, real estate, 401K, and the list goes on and on. All this is preoccupying our minds and it is getting worse. There is no doubt we need a change so we just need to be positive and know we can make it and it will turn around soon. We all need a little peace in our minds and we must realize that not everything is around money. It is hope and as long as we hope then we can get through (0 comments)
