Thoughts, ideas, insights, and tips on writing for real estate - from a former real estate broker turned real estate copywriter.
Do you dream about your work?I do, and one morning I woke up dreaming that I was writing a blog post about potatoes.

This morning's email brought a new twist. It was a message with the subject line: "Meet (name)." The message it contained was...
Last Thursday night I made a big mistake. Realizing that since my husband became hooked on You Tube's monster machine videos we were using more than our allotted 10 Gigabytes of data in a month, I decided to upgrade our Hughes Net service. After going on line to check the pricing, I called and sp...
