Bedroom Ettiquette - 09/07/08 08:45 AM
In my opinion a bedroom has.... A Window or Door: that is low enough that a child can escape That is big enough for an adult to escape Is actually in that room and not adjoining room A Closet: Not a closet with the furnace Individual Closet with Doors No Closet? It might be a Den! A Door: That closes Space to fit a bed Can be a small bed - but needs to fit a bed So what do you call a bedroom? Is it frustrating for you to see a house advertised as four bedrooms to find it only has two? (2 comments)
Inter-County Connector - Maryland - 09/04/08 09:28 PM
What is the Inter-County Connector? The intercounty connector otherwise known as the ICC project is moving swiftly along and giving homebuyers (albeit not home sellers) a sense of relief as the areas where it is being built are becoming much more obvious. This road is a major east-west toll highway being built in Montgomery County, Maryland from Interstate I270 (at the intersection of I370) and extending to meet I95 and end slightly beyond in Prince George's County. This controversial project has been on the books for more than 50 years - yet in the recent hot real estate market - many (2 comments)
It is almost vacation time! That means that my favorite sister will come and pamper and spoil my two dogs and 19 year old kitty. They hate to see us leave...but they are so well cared for that sometimes, I think they forget that we are gone. Sometime my husband's parents take care of them too...and you can tell that they have had a great time. For me, I can relax knowing that they are in the best and most capable hands of my family. I am pretty lucky that they will do this - we often take a (4 comments)
8i Lots of Promise - 09/04/08 07:31 PM
We were very excited to upgrade to Top Producer 8i - but the going hasn't been easy. So many of the features from earlier versions are just not intuitive or not there. I know it is always a big trial and error to make changes (LOL-like changing your brokerage)....however, the process has not been as smooth as it should be. Some of the simplest things like why can't they have a search by subdivision...there isn't even a good field for it that is easy to use and find. Oh, and why can't you print out the name and contact information from (14 comments)
QUESTION: THERE ARE SO MANY SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES? HOW DO I CHOOSE? The How: Pick the one your friends participate with Figure out which ones attract your collegues and competitors Which ones represent you the way you'd like to be represented Which ones are easy to use The Downside: After you've given that some thought, realize that people who you don't want to interact with - will invite you and want to interact with you. You have to spend time working at it - it is not overnight You need to reciprocate and invite others It is important to (4 comments)
Back to the Blog! - 09/04/08 05:15 PM
Well, as I get ready to go on vacation, I am posting my first blog post in quite some time. I've had a number of distractions and am finally ready to get back to the bascis and my blog. I am going to explore a couple of different formats and go through some of my favorites so that I can get back to a good routine of posting and communicating with my fellow colleagues. I am thinking about going with a Q&A format...such as what I learned today. As we all learn something everyday...and the blog is a good way to (0 comments)
