When do you turn down a commision on a million dollar deal? - 05/15/09 11:38 PM
When do you turn down a commission on a million dollar deal? When it is the right thing to do! I have been working with some charitable organizations to close a deal that will help hundreds of needy people. There was an opportunity here to try to be compensated, but this is for the greater good. America has many people in need, now more so than in any time in my life. So when do you turn down a commission on a million dollar deal? When it helps others. Won't you help too? We need to raise $60,000 in 60 Days (3 comments)
Nothing helps you more than helping others! KC Dream Center - 05/15/09 07:23 PM
My friends and fellow Realtors, these are hard times for all, many of us are facing dificult times ourselves. But I have found that nothing takes your mind off your troubles like helpings others in need. I have been blessed to be a part of one of the most amazing opportunities that has come my way. If you have heard of the Dream Center and all the good they do then you will know what a great help it will be to have a Midwest based Dream Center right here in Kansas City, MO!.

Shadow Inventory... Only the shadow knows! - 05/12/09 10:55 PM
You've heard the speculation, you've read the blogs, how large is the looming shadow inventory? As a broker and property manager, who has recently become one of the go to guys for REO, I can tell you the looming threat is ominous! I am managing hundreds of REO investment properties for lenders who are reluctant to put them on the market, I am doing BPO's for lenders who are moving toward foreclosure on multiple commercial properties. Lenders are holding back inventory because the market is soft and they do not want to flood the market with more toxic assets. From my (9 comments)
Fix my house up for me! Do you get these calls? - 05/11/09 03:42 PM
Do you get those calls? Dear Realtor, or Dear property manager; I've got this broke down shack that needs a complete remodel, but I don't have the money to do it with. Can you please get it fixed up for me and sell it or rent it out? After it sells or rents, you can keep what you spent on it and I get the rest! This is a win-win for both of us and you are just not seeing the great opportunity I am presenting you! You buy the materials, remodel the house and with your skills as a real (6 comments)
My new website cost only 9.95 a year! - 05/06/09 07:22 PM
I just built and launched a new web site for less than $10.00 a year. I am working on some others now too. Bates County Real EstateThe trick is to get them up in the search engine rankings, but I'm pretty good at that. So why do I need yet another web site? Links, referrals, and traffic. As I grow the popularity of this site I gain position on the Internet. As that sight gets more active it boosts the rating of the sites it links to. One site can't do it all! My first site Turn-Key Properties LLC was supposed to (4 comments)
GUILTY... until you prove you are innocent! Fair Housing Again! - 05/01/09 06:27 PM
Welcome to my personal HELL! Yet another complaint by yet another whiner seeking to get something for nothing! The scam that is Fair Housing raises its ugly head again. You must rent to this CONVICTED, REPEAT FELON! I wrote on this subject before (Fair housing truths and myths). The reality of it is my family looks like a picnic at the United Nations! I've got Asian grandchildren, black-Canadian cousins, black great-nephews, heck I'm not even completely sure what my heritage is. I explained in the linked post how this whole system works. It is all predicated on the notion that if (33 comments)
