There's one real estate niche I haven't seen mentioned on any of the Active Rain posts I read. Of course I know somebody is working it, because somebody prompted me to write a prospecting letter set and once in a while someone else purchases that set, but it doesn't have the popularity of some of...
Jon's celebration of his 21 years in America should be a reminder to all of us who take our lives here for granted. It should especially be a wake-up call to those who don't appreciate America - who scorn her and try to bring her down.Too bad those people will never read it or think about it. Tho...
Late this morning, as I sat working at my computer, the phone rang. It was my neighbor. Now that always scares me a little - when he calls,my first thought is "What's wrong?"

Here's yet another good reason to short sell - and to use a knowledgeable agent. Sellers need someone who can not only negotiate well, but get the signatures to prove that they aren't going to be held liable down the line.  How's that for a catchy Title?

Today I came across a blog called "Jay's Free Enterprise Blog." I guess I know who Jay is, although his name isn't on the blog... The story he told about a true "One percenter" was so good, I can't not share it. So take a minute, follow this link, and I'll bet you'll agree with Jay and me - we ne...
