My brother has had a hard year and half.   We were not sure he was going to see 50 but he has!  On Sunday we are going to have a family party with our Dad and his wife, two of my boys and other local family members.  I am so happy!   And because I am an agent I have lots of work to do. In the las...
Yesterday my HUD bid was accepted!  My buyers are excited.  If I had bid much less I know the bid would have been rejected.   How you bid for HUD bids depends on many factors.  1)  What is the buyer willing to bid? 2) How long has the home been on the market? 3) What is the housing market like ri...
I met an older lady while showing a house.  She was visiting her sister.   She wanted to see the inside of the home my buyer just told me she wanted.  I took her number and gave her my card.   In the end my buyer offered on another better home. I called her up and offered to show her the home.  S...
Today I wrote two offers.  One is on a HUD property and the other is on a Fannie Mae property.   Both offers are different to write then the normal offers.   We will talk about the HUD property today. When writing up a HUD offer the first thing to make sure of is that your broker has an NAID numb...

I have not been doing a lot of real estate this weekend.  I must finish this contest so you get my mom's potato  latke recipe.  A long time ago in the age before food processors I remember my grandmother spending a long time with her a chopping bowl.  Lucky for me I was taught with a food process...
Last night when it was time to light the menorah I Skyped my older sons.   We all lit our menorahs at the same time.  It was very good to share this event.  When we were done we could see their lit menorah.   It would have been wonderful to have my older sons with us but this was a nice way to us...
Today on Thanksgiving I am thankful for my friends and family.  I am thankful that my brother seems to be winning his fight against cancer.   I am thankful that I plan to be with my two older sons and my father and stepmother as we celebrate my brother's 50 th birthday with his family. I am thank...
My mother of blessed memory made the worlds best brisket!  At least in my humble opinion...  She made it for many holidays, Chanukah included.  In memory of my mother I am making it for the first night of Chanukah for my father.  1 brisket trimmed 2 large onions garlic or garlic powder 1/4 cup of...
I am not a happy camper.  Chanukah starts the evening before Thanksgiving. I usually start my Chanukah shopping after Thanksgiving but not this year.  I am getting ready.  This Chanukah elf is on the job.  That is my nickname because I married out.   My household is Jewish but my inlaws is not.  ...
