In a way, as a realtor, you have to be all things to all people, from marketing expert and researcher to basic hand-holder. And if anyone is wondering what goes on in the mind of a realtor who likes to write under the moniker "The Home Guru," it's going to be a hodge-podge of subjects as varied as toilet design, dust, haunted and stigmatized houses, the disappearance of the front porch and why, St. Joseph as home seller, the kiss of death to a home sale (parents!), mold, plumbing, electricity and yes, even the kitchen sink.
Here are some observations I've made in my contacts with people, places and things involved with the home and garden, as well as buying and selling homes.
