remax realtors: Has Your Cell Phone Become Your Companion? Maybe Even a Friend? - 12/21/09 02:06 AM
When you leave for a 30 minute trip in your car, do you start thinking about who you will call to pass the time? I know I have thought that a time or two. And why is it that we can hear about people being killed BY DRIVERS ON CELL PHONES and still talk on our phones while driving. Really, why IS it that we do that?
Speaking for myself it's because I simply don't believe it will happen to me. It's also because I just know I will miss something really important.  But then I had a chilling thought. WHAT … (9 comments)

My Wonderful Mom turns 87 Today!
There is not a day that goes by when I am not thankful for my wonderful Mom, nor do I have to be reminded about how blessed I am that she AND my Dad are still with me.
My Mom, Frances, is a woman of strength, conviction, and devout in her Catholic faith. She attends Mass daily and stays away from gossip and ill will. She is kind, considerate, loving, generous, and forgiving. If I wanted to emulate anyone it would be my Mom.

I could go on and on but suffice it to … (10 comments)

remax realtors: Social Media...It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore! Proceed with Caution! - 12/09/09 12:01 AM
Social Media...It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore! Proceed with Caution!
We all know about the social media explosion. And it's not just realtors that have climbed aboard.
It's for just about everyone. It's for anyone in sales, IT, real estate, finance, engineering, marketing, cooks, sports lovers, musicians and anyone else you can think of.
Lately, I've been getting much more involved in  Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook. In trying to grow my "connections" I have, of, course "met" more people. Some of these people genuinely want to share what they know, much like here on Active Rain. Some though, are there to … (10 comments)

Blogging and Social Media Are 95% Hard Work and 5% Talent.
Some of you who know me know that I have a degree in music education from Cleveland State University. In order to get into the program I had to audition. My instrument was the piano. Because of some scheduling conflicts the only person that could hear my audition was the head of the music department, Andrius Kuprevicius.
I don't recall the piece I played but I do remember that it was in a minor key but when I played the last chord, I accidentally played a major chord. I acted … (16 comments)

remax realtors: Brecksville Ohio Real Estate Market Report for Oct./Nov. 2009 - 12/07/09 12:54 AM
Brecksville Ohio Real Estate Market Report for Oct./Nov. 2009
Below you will find the market statistics for Oct. and Nov. 2009 for Brecksville Ohio.  Active, contingent, and pending sales dropped but the closed sales are back to a more normal number for Brecksville.  Fourth quarter sales typically slow down and we are seeing that now. The tax credit extension should help to keep sales somewhat steady and perhaps be the catalyst for earlier sales in the first quarter of 2010, which was not the case in the early part of 2009. Pricing will continue to be key to getting homes sold.
