Happy Mothers Day 2015 from Katy Texas
 
I want to wish all the Mom’s out there to have a special Happy Mother’s Day. If you have not yet contacted your Mom try something most folks don’t do these days by calling her. Save this text crap or email for your bro’s or sisters. If she lives close enough to you go visit her, take her to dinner and make sure you tell her how much you love her.

homes for sale katy texas: Sometimes being a Realtor is similar to taking Chocolates from a Box - 07/21/13 04:50 AM
Sometimes being a  Realtor is similar to taking Chocolates from a Box  
Many folks may remember a fairly famous movie where the main character said in a often quoted line something to the effect that “Life is like taking a piece of candy from a box of chocolates as you never know what you will get”. Today I found an Email in my inbox that made me think being a Realtor is sometimes just like that fairly famous line from the movie.

Are You a Fair Weather Blogger?  
Now is where I am supposed to get all confrontal and tell you if you fit a certain description you are fair weather blogger! I personally find it very amusing that there are some active bloggers who write in this style and some folks who  find them so funny. Their approach is to tell all of us how we are doing whatever the topic is wrong and if you knew what you were doing you follow their lead. It sort of reminds me of the “dark sarcasm” words in a Pink Floyd album The … (9 comments)

I Hit 700,000 AR Point Mark in Katy and Google Penguin Questions
Earlier this week I reached the Active Rain 700,000 point mark and frankly no one but me noticed. I guess that was no surprise but I have always been too laid back to blow my own horn very much. If I look back to early May 2011 I was quagmired in the low 70 K point level and had written a few lousy blogs. I decided I would become more imvolved in AR as my business needed a shot in the arm. I made this decision at the same time … (45 comments)

What I was lacking was sales experience dealing with the public. Of course I never had to worry about my own web site and how to attract new business. My experience is different from most folks as I am still working a demanding full time … (10 comments)
