It has taken awhile for me to be able to post this.  Our realty company is one of the sponsors of the Phantom 9 race boat that was in the lead in the Sarasota Grand Prix Race over the 4th of July Weekend.  It is a magnificent machine and the pilot, Mark Niemann, is amazing. We are all in awe of ...

I received a wonderful phone call today from some buyers who purchased a beautiful villa on Siesta Key back in May of 2011.  It came on the market at what I felt was a very good price and we were able to negotiate it to an even better one with it closing at $332,000.  The owner had found the perf...

Day Six 09SundayJun 2013 Martha / And on the sixth day we rested – well sort of. Sundays are great because there is no 7 a.m. class and our first scheduled session is breakfast at 8.

This is a follow-up to my blog two days ago about the fact that it does not matter what the seller paid for his home....

Today yet another buyer asked me to find out what a seller had paid for a home.  Why?  What does that have to do with the value of the home now? What if the owner purchased it 20 years ago at a price relative to that time’s value?  Should he now give it away because he did not pay anything near w...

Human interaction is far superior to electronic outreach.  That is one of the biggest lessons I have learned in nine years as a realtor.  The "internet lead"  was all the rage when I got my license and I spent hours in classes that touted the secret to attracting these people, how much time you h...
