bill cherry: Measuring Cost of Gross Income - Here's What I Did - 03/19/13 01:55 AM
Back when I owned two real estate companies, the analytical part of my business school education found its way into the operation.
<<== Bill in "the Beginning" I knew it was important to be able to measure the following things:
·        How effective were our ads in the different media, and specifically how effective were they for each subcategory – each listing that was advertised
·        Did billboards work?  If they did, was it because of location?  If they didn’t, was it because of location or did that medium bring low results? ·        What was the overall cost to the agency for … (2 comments)

bill cherry: Was I the Original Green Builder? - 03/11/13 03:39 AM
7655 South Brasewood
Years ago the electricity for a lot of south Texas was provided by a company known as Houston Light and Power Company.
We picked a site full of trees, figured out how to build a series of stucco, compatible townhomes without removing one tree, and then used what products were available at the time to make them energy efficient.
The architect was Houston's The Steinberg Design Collaborative’s Arthur Steinberg who has since gone to heaven.  The firm, founded by Arthur in 1957, continues today under the leadership of his son, Sanford.
And we all worked hours and hours trying … (3 comments)

bill cherry: How You Can Use Radio and TV to Help You from One Who Knows. - 02/25/13 12:41 AM
For most of my career I lived and owned real estate related businesses in Houston and Galveston.
A good reason they were successful was because of my avocation – broadcasting.
People in the area knew me from radio and television appearances.  And on top of that was a somewhat unusual last name that was memorable – Cherry.
So, a lot of people chose to have me or to have my company to represent them, not because they knew me personally, but because of their recognition of me from broadcasting.
I am a perfect example how radio and television are extraordinary ways … (7 comments)

KMOX NEWS:  St. Louis’ Playboy Club Nothing Like TV Show
September 23, 2011 1:09 PM
 ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – It’s premiere week for the television networks. One show, “The Playboy Club” is fashioned after the first club to open in Chicago in 1960.
The St. Louis Playboy Club opened on Lindell Blvd. in 1962. Hugh Hefner even came for the opening.
“The playboy club was wonderful, and Mr. Hefner was everybody my age’s hero,” said jazz pianist Bill Cherry. “I went there to play primarily so I would really be admired by my pals, and people would … (4 comments)

bill cherry: THE NIGHT OWL - 07/21/11 01:06 AM

Some say it's because it's a seaport town. 
Others say it was inevitable since it's an island dangling off of the south shore of Texas.
But no one disagrees with the universal opinion that Galveston, Texas has an overabundance of characters, now and always has.
The Night Owl by Christie "The Beachcomber" Mitchell with Bill Cherry chronicles the island's most famous public relations man, as he and his wife, Janie, weave their ways through the "What's Up" of Galveston during the '40s and '50s, and tell about it in Walter Winchell style through Mitchell's weekly newspaper columns.
Those were … (1 comments)

Like many of us from the '50s and '60s, we were fascinated by the medium of radio broadcasting, and did our best to make our mark as a personality with a commercial radio station.  My first DJ program began in 1954 on KGBC in Galveston, and by the time I decided I didn't have the fortitude to pursue it as a vocation, I had worked my way up to being one of the hosts of the famous "American Airlines Music 'til Dawn" program that was broadcast in major cities nation-wide.
Chuck Dunaway began his career a few years before I did, … (2 comments)

bill cherry: IT'S ONE TIME AN OLD REALTOR IS A BEAUTIFUL REALTOR ...... - 11/06/09 02:22 AM

LEARN WHY HOMES DON'T SELL________________________________________ REMEMBER THOSE BIG ADS BRAGGING ABOUT THEIR SALES? Many of those who ran the big braggadocios ads about their real estate sales expertise have evaporated into thin air. THEY'RE GONE...OUT OF BUSINESS! You see, in reality their real estate prowess was nothing more than their own aberration. Anybody could sell homes back then, for goodness sakes. BUT EVEN THEN, THE MAJORITY NEVER SOLD MORE THAN 10 HOMES IN THEIR ENTIRE CAREERS! Now it's time to go back to using Old Faithfuls when you need a Realtor. I'VE SOLD THOUSANDS!

                      The Big House aka The Open Gates                  
                              No One Who Truly Knows the Mansion Would Ever Call It The Open Gates
                                                         By Bill Cherry, Dallas Broker-Realtor
When I was growing up on Galveston Island, there were so many mansions that the thought of their value and opulence to us were sidebars, really. They were nothing more than where our friends' parents had grown up, and now were where old people lived. People who told us the stories of Galveston's past. Many of the stories I learned to love and I've been writing them for more than twenty years.
The exception was what family and … (4 comments)

                    Galveston's Pirate Jean Lafitte Was a Fraud. He Was Really Mortimer Wilson                                                                      By Bill Cherry, Dallas Broker-Realtor
It is entirely possible that the real Jean Lafitte never sailed into or had a home in Galveston. But that depends on whose accounting of Lafitte's life you want to believe.
The real Jean Lafitte was one of two brothers. Jean was the elder and Pierre was the younger. They were probably born in St. Malos, France in the 1780s. Jean was described as "tall, finely formed, and in his pleasant mood was always agreeable and interesting. He would stand for … (11 comments)

bill cherry: SOMEONE IS THINKING ABOUT YOU AT THIS VERY MOMENT.... - 05/28/07 12:27 PM
          Throughout most of my life, I've been one of those who keeps in contact with friends.  Those I grew up with, those who moved away, those I went to college with, old girlfriends, clients...everyone.  I suppose I'm sort of the Joel Osteen of real estate.
          My message to my friends is always basically the same:  How are things going for you?  Is there anything I can do for you to help make things better?  And if there is, I do my best to make sure that it happens.
          Today, I got an email from my friend Vivian Webb Latimer.  She and her … (2 comments)

I'll bet at least once a week Patty and I would get a postcard or letter from her, with her picture and all, telling us what a spectacular job she had done selling other expensive homes in the  beautiful community we loved and lived in near Houston.   The color photo of her with the toothy grin showed her to be an attractive woman about forty.  We didn't know her.
She wanted us to be her next clients, that is (in very small print) if we didn't already have our home listed with someone else. 
And then she added … (2 comments)
