   I don’t recall seeing processing fees discussed here.  My company charges one.  I know many companies do.  With my company, if you have your own transaction coordinator (assistant) my company refunds the processing fee to the agent.  I charge $395 per transaction side.  That accounts for an ad...

   I remember years ago, listening to a cassette tape (for those of you who don’t know what a cassette tape is, it’s the predecessor to the CD J). It was of my Grandmother whom I never met. She died before I was born.  Although I saw the occasional black and white photo of her, I really didn’t kn...

   I’m sure most of you have been involved in the multi-function vs individual device debate, whether with others or in your shopping mind!  The question becomes, Do you get a multi-device to consolidate or do you buy individual devices!     The big rage now is to get a Palm style phone that has ...

   If I was God or King for a day, I would make a series of changes to “clean up our industry”! First, I would raise the state licensing fees for real estate agents to $1000 or more! This would be the first step towards getting the people that aren't qualified to be in this profession out of the ...

I recently stayed at the Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  Our group of friends (business associates if the IRS is reading) was taking 4 rooms.  When I made the reservation, I requested foam pillows (my son and I are allergic to feather pillows). I also asked that th...
