nashville: Dear John . . . - 10/02/12 07:00 AM
  We’ve been together through tough times and have had our ups and our downs.
We have laughed and played and argued and WORKED so hard to reach that goal we set at the beginning of our relationship.
Sadly, I feel I have let you down. I’m not as much in love with you now as I thought I was when we first met . . . The excitement/thrill is gone, and I think it’s best that we call it quits.
Yes John, I have worked and worked to sell your house at the price and terms you want, and I … (1 comments)

nashville: 5048 Lakeview Lane - Radnor Lake - Oak Hill - Nashville, TN 37220 #in - 04/16/12 05:36 AM
This is one of those neighborhoods into which you can't even buy yourself very often - RARE!

Remember the cows on Abbott Martin? 1013 Greenwich Park – Abbottsford – Green Hills $789,000   
Having grown up in Nashville, I remember every summer driving daily from our house in Green Hills down Abbott Martin (To the Mall or Swim Club) and seeing the pastures, cows and horses on a magnificent farm very close to the mall. I have always loved that about Nashville . . . A city that’s not so big that you don’t have to go far to be in the country. Sadly, there was a barn fire years ago on that farm, and the owner was … (2 comments)

nashville: Only “Locals” know this secret about Nashville – Country Living in the city #in - 07/01/11 08:25 AM
Most folks who aren’t from around here probably wouldn’t wander to the North and West 1/4 of Metropolitan Nashville (Davidson County) unless they just happened to be buzzing through to Clarksville or St Louis down I-24. Why else would you even go there?

If heading West on I-24 is your only perspective,you’re missing out on a golden nugget of an area which offers a quality of life that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else on the planet 
This is an area where you can buy a BIG house on a LOT of land “out in the country” . … (0 comments)

nashville: Scarcity creates value. - 10/01/10 12:36 AM
Scarcity creates value.
Posted on October 1, 2010 by Barry Owen
"Scarcity creates value."
These 3 words were the final words in Seth Godin's post this morning.
The unique houses with surprising features often sell faster for more money than the rest of the herd.
When you're selling something (ANYTHING), consider scarcity.
What is it about this thing that's scarce relative to other things that generally meet the same need the Buyer seeks?
To know this, you must first know what else is out there. For the REALTOR, this means that previewing houses is actually a service to her clients . . … (4 comments)

As I develop Pareto Realty, i often stop myself and think about WHO to invite to the party and WHY each person would be a good fit. What does each person bring to the table that will help all of us achieve our goals?
That then tumbles into thoughts of what the "end game" - The true mission of a real estate firm (or ANY organization for that matter) is?

Myopic Vision and your life . . .
Posted on September 24, 2010 by Barry Owen
I'd venture to say that most everyone has heard of Myopia.
In fact, a good number of us live with myopic eyes (until we get old and crusty and our eyes develop (atrophe) to throw far sightedness into the picture, thereby creating the need for bi-focals).
It's a cruel trick nature plays - Can't clearly see things up close or far out.
The common use of the word "myopia" has to do your eyeballs.
I'm thinking of "Vision Myopia" with respect to the direction your life … (0 comments)

Logo Design - Branding yourself
Posted on September 14, 2010 by Barry Owen
Businesses put a LOT of effort into what they do (how they serve their customers), and I would say that all businesses began with a vision of what the Business should look like.
I believe that when it comes to marketing, the LOOK and FEEL of the businesses (as a first impression) is almost as important as the quality of the services it provides.
This look and feel begins (IMHO) with the NAME of the company. think of some of the brands you see every day - Coke, Nike, … (4 comments)

How many marketing messages do you think the average American see EVERY DAY?
Have you ever considered this?
I googled it . . . Here's what I found: "The average American is exposed to 247 commercial messages each day."Consumer Reports Website
Humor me and try this little experiment. Pause your reading of this post and look around you. Count every THING within your range of vision . . . every THING that is not nailed down . . . from the smallest to … (5 comments)

nashville: The cost of Loyalty may be higher than you think! #in - 09/09/10 02:57 AM
← Pareto Realty - The Vital Few
The cost of Loyalty may be higher than you think!
What's loyalty cost?
I believe there are two sides of the loyalty cost coin.
The cost of our loyalty to others . . . or companies or products
and the flip side
The cost associated with KEEPING the loyalty of others.
Seth Godin wrote a great blog post today and got me thinking.
He said:
"Loyalty is what we call it when someone refuses a momentarily better option." Seth godin
