This is the time of the year when one begins to reflect.  And, no, I'm not talking about the bathroom mirror.The year is quickly wrapping up... did you accomplish all you wanted to accomplish?  Did you spend as much time as you wanted with your family? Did you get to take those vacations you want...
Ocassionally, I've read online, where an agent has been contacted by a buyer, or seller to simply handle the paperwork on a transaction for a flat fee.The buyer and seller have already found each other, and they simply want a Realtor to handle the paperwork.  Sometimes they offer a small percenta...
My daughter called me early a morning last week and said "Dad?", with that tiny voice... all you dads reading this know that 'tiny voice'... the one that says "something's wrong"."What's wrong?"

"I called three agents, and you're the first one who answered his phone". Said the voice at the other end of the call."I'd like you to show me this $600,000 property.  The listing agent offered to show it to me, but I want my own agent".I was suspicious.  It sounded too easy, but as the call cont...
I've been a real estate agent a long time.  A looong time. And during that time I've attended a lot of inspections, and I learn something new at each and every inspection.The knowledge I've picked up from random inspectors has proved invaluable as I show properties to my clients.  It helps me kno...
