OMG! Most people detest the friction of CHANGE! After all, “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?” Just as we’re getting used to the way things work around here, some crazy renegade rocks the boat with a great new idea to “Streamline” and work more efficiently . . . or the software update changes the lo...

I’ll bet $1,000,000 you have a pile. Whether it be closed files waiting to be audited and stored . . . or your seemingless infinite pile (list) of “Things to do” . . . or that stack of bills that seems to self propagate . . . the pile of dirty dishes in the sink . . . that pesky (and smelly) pile...

His reply was: “theoretically looks good” To which I replied: “Most everything in my world is theoretical these days so that’s good enough for me :-)” After all, the Zombie Apocaly...

The TAR Purchase and Sale Agreement is 10 pages LOOOONG! THAT’s a LOT of words and terms and blanks and dashes and time deadlines and STUFF.

We REALTORS hear LOTS of folks utter: “I’m going to make an offer!” Followed by . . . CRICKETS! NOTHING! NADA! Not even a peep!
