I am often complimented on my listing presentation. Without sounding egotistical, it must be good because I take alot of listings and don't lose to others often.  I always ask the client why they chose me as compared to the others they interviewed. I also ask if the other agents showed or told th...

  As I wrote a response to a recent blog by Sara Lipnitz, I felt the response was too long and would make an excellent blog on commission cutting. Often times we are confronted with the request or demand to reduce our commission. Coming from a prior brokerage where it was prohibited, we got real ...

We had a church for sale for over 2 years.  We sold it 20 times but it fell through each time, either because of financing or because of its deplorable condition. (the roof was missing & the interior demolished)  After 2 years on the market, my associate suggested that I buy it & that the Sellers...

Today, as I drove home to Fort Lauderdale from Fort Myers (a very boring stretch of straight, flat highway with nothing but Everglades swamp on both sides) I got an opportunity to listen to my eclectic collection of iPod music. (I'm going somewhere with this, I promise).  I heard "great toons" by...

I don't own or have an interest in this site, but I've had great success using it and I wanted to share it with you.  It's www.junkbusters.com .  Their site boasts "Bust the junk messages out of your life"!  I used the site for junk mail and saw an unbelievable reduction in the amount of stuff I ...
