real estate the rome way: Art And Books And Real Estate - 03/12/19 06:22 PM
 
March Active Rain Challenge - Book Smart because Books and art often go hand-in-hand.
 Our friend Endre Barath, Jr. has suggested we take the photo above and write about it.
Seems pretty simple to me.
Just a few weeks ago, I went to one of my favorite places... The ACC show held each year right in Baltimore. Each year that I been on AR, I have not only gone to the show but have written a blog along with a video of what I thought were some of the highlights.
The spotlight was on the artists whose work I admired and also the most interesting people. Those that were … (13 comments)

real estate the rome way: Take A Page Out Of My Book...Be A Mentor - 01/20/18 07:52 PM
 
Take a page or two out of my book Real Estate The Rome Way and find a newer agent to help.
Give someone a hand and be a mentor.
As I say in the book, mentoring is one of the most rewarding parts of this business.
You don't have to  mentor in person.

real estate the rome way: Finding Time To Blog Each Day - 08/03/16 10:52 AM
  
When speaking with other professionals, I amquestioned about finding time to blog. 
 
  
 
Here are a few of my responses: 
 'That's a nice looking outfit. When did you go shopping?''Love your new hair style, when did you go to the stylist?''You went out to lunch today. Where did you find time?'                           'Shiny car. When did you get it detailed?' 
 
 After a few of these questions, and a grin, my point is made.
You make time for what's important! 
As mentioned on page 15 of my book  Real Estate the Rome Way  WIN is an  important acronym that works to focus my concentration.It stands for What's Important Now. The more you use these three words, the more you understand … (16 comments)

real estate the rome way: Winning Over Naysayers The Rome Way - 02/16/16 10:39 AM
 
 Winning Over Naysayers The Rome Way
 
 Check out the ActiveRain Contest. 
Just today I had an agent tell me I "better" take his offer because this property will"never" sell at the listing price. His " non written offer'' was  an email for a low price and a rent to own. I suggested he put in a formal offer if he wanted it presented.
  
When someone says it can't be done...please get out of my way.
 
 
 
This reminded me of examples others said I could or should not do. 
Here are a few:
 
You can't drive a two door car and be a success in real estate.
You can't have a waiting list for sellers.

real estate the rome way: Does It Always Have To Be About Real Estate? - 02/12/16 12:52 AM
Does It Always Have To Be About Real Estate?
 
 
Speaking with AR member Marco Giancola this morning, I discovered we have similarities. We have both  been REALTORS ®  for the past 26 years, we both enjoy learning and  we both enjoy connecting with other agents of all ages. Marco is interested in the recent course CNE that I took with another member .
 
And then I found out about Marco's  love of architechture and painting.
When asked if he shared this passion on ActiveRain,  his response...No, he feels he should keep the conversation to real estate.
 
To say I disagree would be an understatement. People want to … (25 comments)

How Did Your Radio Show Begin?
 
 
Many years ago, 25 but who's counting , I met Terry Stafford at a WCR meeting. Terry  was president of Women's Council of Realtors ® and hosting a live radio show. That show was ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE.
 
I used to listen and when I had something to say.. would call the show. Before long I was invited as an occasional guest. I offered to be on call 12-1 every Sunday should Terry need a backup host or coverage for holidays or personal time. Sometimes that call would come in after 11 am and I would be at the studio … (15 comments)

A few weeks ago we went to lunch at Tio Pepes in Baltimore to celebrate our anniversary. When leaving, I noticed AMS -Wm.

                          Kick Butt Listing the Rome Way works for me! Being a solo broker and listing agent,  THE MOST AMAZING KICK BUTT LISTING PRESENTATION CONTEST was right up my alley.

I love what I do and give so much to each transaction, I need to make sure it is a good partnership. … (14 comments)

Saying Farewell to a Best Friend!
 
Anyone who knows me has read about my friend, mentor, publisher and confidant...Peg Silloway.
 
                                            
We have known each other for well over 20 years. We met at NAWBO -National Association of Women's Business Owners- back when I was a porcelain artist and she was a CPA. We liked each other from the beginning.
Over time we changed places...career wise. Peg went back into the arts, doing stained glass and then writing and you all know I went into real estate...HomeRome Realty.
I don't think we have missed getting together, one day each month, in the … (29 comments)

real estate the rome way: Why I Blog... Has Nothing To Do With Why You Should Blog! - 05/07/11 04:42 PM
ActiveRain is turning five next month and I have been here  blogging since  July of 2006 almost from the  beginning!  I was the 845th member to sign in.  It has become part of my daily routine and a huge part of my business. An often asked question: How do you find time to write every day?
I usually say: I take a shower every day, wash my hair every day...always finding time for important things.
Blogging has become one of those important things.
