Relaxing Sunday in Phoenix       Now  I wish I could say I'm relaxing in the pool today like this little cutie!  But alas that's not the case as I've got 2 sets of clients in from out of town wanting to buy homes so I'm off to show homes.  And I'm looking forward to it as they're such nice folks!...
Talk about Awkward - Boom on my Butt   A few years back I had some investors in town looking to purchase homes.

3 strikes and you're out - yesterday. Today 3 home runs!   #1 Yesterday I wrote about a situation that popped up at the 11:59 closing hour.

Crowdsourcing - My Re-discovered Social Media Gold Mine   When Bob Stewart announced the Social Media Crowdsourcing Contest I immediately knew what has shifted in my social media online marketing this year. Since about 2007 we've been creating in house photos and virtual tours which were at best,...
Making it about the clients and not the salesperson...   We're in the process of remodeling the kitchen and it's almost time to pick out appliances. I have an idea of what I am looking for in a gas stove and my husband has his eye of some fancy refrigerator. We're meeting next week with the desig...
