Motivational Monday: Ponder before heading yonder.
One more year and my son will graduate along with his girlfriend, Mandy. Now is the time to think about game plans, future expectations, short term and long term goals. The world is just waiting for them to arrive and make an impact that will drive them towards success.
I am grateful they are taking the time to ponder before going yonder rather than haphazardly setting out to unknown areas. A sure sign of maturity is the ability to reflect or think through thoroughly. The best to you Spensyr and Mandy as you move

Spaghetti Real Estate: Throwing several offers out there on multiple short sale properties to see which one sticks.
There are people that play this game because it is easy to pull an offer with no recourse before Due Diligence deadlines are met. In my opinion, there needs to be some accountability when offers are recklessly sent out to see who can get to the finish line the quickest.
All aspects of a short sale transaction depend heavily on all people involved to move forward to get the property sold to avoid foreclosure. This may be just an investment for some

Motivational Monday: Treat people right and the rest will follow in 2012!
I was told early in my career to look at a potential client and imagine a dollar sign on their forehead in order to close a deal. Thanks, but no thanks! Don’t get me wrong, my family depends on my income to ensure bills are paid to make life comfortable but if you treat people with care, maintain loyalty while creating a trusting relationship, the rest will follow.
You hold the power to be successful based on methods that work without compromising your own standards. From experience I have

Speechless Sunday (almost!): Give or take?
From this position, it's difficult to say whether The Grinch is coming or going, giving or taking. While the trusting side wants to believe in the goodness of others, it is always important to look from all views at one's history to gain a clearer picture of what is before us.
What are your thoughts...Is The Grinch Giving or Taking?
It looks like this Sunday is going to be another Sunny-day!

Motivational Monday: Get your message across Point Blank!
Grandma got married the 8th time for companionship, as her newest husband quickly found out! He tried to get frisky with her one night and she reciprocated by getting her gun out and telling him...
“We married to keep each other company and as long as you remember that and keep your hands to yourself, we’ll get along just fine.” He got the message…LOUD & CLEAR!

A sudden storm blew in complete with roiling clouds, spraying a fine mist from the heavens at Panguitch Lake. We expected a deluge but in its place came a vibrant rainbow breaking through heavy cover, stretching downward.
It appeared to be confused as if to ask…Should I stay or should I go?
And it did!
Happy Sunday to you all!

Motivational Monday: No time to be still.
Back in January, I wrote a Motivational Monday post titled Beat All Odds! that talks about overcoming adversity and challenges in life because you-will-be-tested! Through fear, loss or disappointment, we must continue to push through in order to reach the goals set forth, no time to be still.
As we head into November, is time to reflect and look ahead to the coming year. What do you expect to accomplish and how are you going to get there? 2012 will be a new start for me as my real estate partner of 3 years has

The surest way to gain a client’s trust is to do what you say. When you set up an appointment to view homes, show up:
On time Every time Enthusiastic Prepared to go Dressed appropriately Arriving late, disheveled and poorly organized will be met with scrutiny and may end a potentially great relationship. That quick! If you’re going to be late, a courtesy call is expected and the least you can do when people are waiting.
You only get one chance to make a positive impression with new clients so make the effort of arriving

Friday Funnies: "I don't THINK so!"
Once upon a time a princess met a frog in the forest. The frog said he was a handsome prince until an evil witch cast a spell on him.
"Kiss me, we'll marry and live in the castle." Then you can:
Do all the laundry Mend my clothes Cook the meals Clean the castle Have my children As she was eating frog legs for dinner a little later, the independent princess kept licking her lips and saying to herself, "I don't THINK so!"

Someone who is not afraid of some hard work in order to get their house built?
Nominate them. It may be the best thing you could do
