District Conference re-cap:  nice- but were any lives changed?
 
Last week, I was one of a number of folks attending our Florida Realtors (FR) District 12 Conference, "Productivity and Profit".  It was an interesting day for the most part (though some parts of it did drag- I can't lie).  The agenda included talk of Realtors and technology, how Realtors can get global business, the state of Florida's economy and its impact on Realtors, a Top Producer panel and a "Meet the Candidates" type of forum that introduced us to those … (0 comments)

On this 4th of July, Happy Independence Day!
As we celebrate the 238th anniversary of the year of our young nation's birth, my thoughts drift to the words of President John Adams, who in a letter to his wife Abigail remarked of the occasion that
"it ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
I agree- and may fireworks rain down from sea to shining sea … (12 comments)

Start with a waterfront park that looks a like the first photo above, add in over 300,000 of your closest friends- and you've got your Red, Hot and Boom goin' on!

Wacky Wednesday: How's this for curb appeal?

"How's this gonna help the poor sap trying to sell the place next door?"

Those Awkward Moments #3: No high-five for you!

As I said the other day, I've had a number of awkward moments over the course of my years in property management.  I've already written about two of those moments, yet I've saved for last the moment which without argument stands alone as the most awkward moment of my property management life.

Setting the stage... I managed a good number of properties in my native Birmingham, Alabama- and back in 2006 I probably did more work on a day-to-day basis than I … (4 comments)

While not quite under the influence like the driver in the photo here, it's safe to say that we've all had folks who have influenced us over the course of our careers.  Be they parents, friends, managers, brokers or others, our career paths have been influenced in a number of ways by those around us.

As with my first Awkward Moments post, I mentioned how I've had a number of them over the years.  I've narrowed 'em down to the 3 best ones (or worst ones) I can recall.
 
Awkward Moment #2 was a truly awkward one that came about during a showing a few years ago.  I'd set a showing of a 3BR place- and was to meet a single dad and his 2 kids.

I've surely had a number of awkward moments over the course of my 13 years in the real estate/property management business.  While I realize I'll only be gettin' points for one of these, I had a hard time choosing between my top 3 awkward moments- so I'll write about each of them.
 
Awkward Moment #1 is a no-brainer.  This awkward moment came about while I was showing a condo back in '05/'06 or so.  My pre-screening of the prospect was normal- this was … (4 comments)

From time to time, I'm sure we've all had properties or listings of some sort that we tried like heck to get- yet failed in the end and watched while another agent had some success with them.  Yep, the ol' "ones that got away".
 
On the other hand, I'd figure a good number of folks have also had properties or listings that they "won"- only to feel like anything but a winner down the road as that dog of a property sat … (2 comments)
