It seemed like a good idea, and I have had a few people contact me about "stages" so I thought I might try it with my new listing.

Unfortunately, he left before I had the chance to ask. My Dad wasn't one to discuss much with you, or open up about things. I know he had a hard life in a steel town outside of Pittsburg with an alcoholic father. I know he joined the Navy and served during Korea. I am the oldest son, and couldn't...

In Dirk Zellars's book, "Dummies Guide to Success as a Real Estate Agent", he mentions always doing Direct Income Producing Activities. The Pareto Principle states that 20% of your activities will result in 80% of your sales. Those activites are showing houses, writing offers, listing homes, and ...

I do a lot of short sales from the seller's side, and I have a problem with some of our conventional wisdom about disclosure. I have been taught throughout my career that when you represent a seller you should take care of your client by getting the best price for their home and also giving profe...
