One of my primary directives in life is to help others reach their goals. When we reach our goals we are more satisfied and enjoy life so much more. When someone asks me to join in that journey I am honored and privileged to be a part of the process, often as a coach and guide. I love sharing my experiences and hope they are helpful to others.
Several years ago my wife was shopping in Target, not her usual behavior since she hates shopping (I know, I'm a lucky guy).

These steps apply to both Windows and Mac OS X. Most of the things I do are simple steps even someone wi...
I have submitted a ticket to Active Rain almost 24 hours ago and just now I received an update on my ticket. For now don't use the short URLs to share your Active Rain Blogs.

The Richmond, Virginia housing market is very dynamic and localized. Often numbers for the region do not necessarily reflect numbers for areas of town or even specific neighborhoods. As I work on my specific Housing Market Reports for communities I'm focusing on here's where you can get general m...
One thing I offer to prospective clients is a free consultation to discuss their real estate goals in an effort to find solutions for what they want to do. It's a great opportunity for people to talk with an RVA HomeProfessional before they commit to sell or buy a home. It takes some time, but it...
Overall real estate agents have an image problem. Some of this comes from a few bad apples - yes there are some people in the profession I would prefer not to do business with because of the way they do business. While other sources are plain ignorance which sometimes comes from using informatio...
