What have you done to shine in this market? What have you done recently to advocate for your client and wow them? This is a great time to be a Professional Realtor where clients seek out (4 comments)

Is there Asbestos in Residential Homes? - 10/19/07 07:33 PM
Is there asbestos in the home you are planning on buying? Does your home inspector suspect asbestos? Asbestos was common insulator used around pipes, furnaces, and duct work. Yes, asbestos has been found in residential single family housing as recently as last week in a New Jersey home. Asbestos became well known by many when their states required all public schools remove asbestos from the buildings. This era was circa 1989/1990. Asbestos can also appear in residential homes, particulary homes built in the 1940's, 50's and 1960's. Asbestos can cause lung cancer if it is breathed in. It can be breathed in if (0 comments)

What is the purpose of your business? Profit? Of course, no business can sustain itself without it but what is the deeper level that gets you juiced up about going to work each day. What separates your company from the next one? Is it socially responsible or purely profit driven? Ben and Jerry's is a prime example of a socially conscience corporation.

Loquacious is the word of the DAY. It comes from the the Latin word loqui which means to speak I guess that makes sense for the word ventriloquist when you make a dummy speak. It is a common mistake for rookie real estate agents to to be loquacious and never stop talking. Very often, the best sales strategy is for an agent to "shut-up" which dispels the myth of the born agent or natural because of their gift of gab or boisterism. (Is that a word?) loquacious \loh-KWAY-shuhs\, adjective:1. Very talkative.2. Full of excessive talk; wordy. In your opinion, when is it a good time (9 comments)
