Working from home, I was mashing away on my keyboard when my phone rang.  Since we're so used to companies calling trying to sell us "stuff" I was immediately in that mindset because I didn't recognize the number and it wasn't a local call.   The caller identified himself as "Reggie" but I missed...
My day today included an ice cream social at a title company.  The title company is part of a larger conglomerate and a fairly recognizable symbol. Which one is not important, but the message I'm about to relay is very important.   While at the ice cream social, I chatted with the Branch Manager....
Harry writes a great list of necessities to encourage folks to treat credit the right way.  Making the right decisions about credit can raise FICO scores.   Higher FICO scores will help you to pay lower interest rates on things like car payments.  All too often college age adults have no idea abo...
Recently, I attended a class on Realtor Property Resource.   The instructor was awesome and I learned a lot.   The importance of the site for me is that I wanted to send data reports to my clients and he told us the easiest way to do it.    Logging into RPR today, I sent out 62 Market Reports to ...

Summer Fun in the Desert can still be outside!  The Phoenix area is home to amazing water slide parks.  Our Summer Concert series ends this month, so let's focus on water fun!   Water Parks are located in different areas around town so check for hours of operation.  Wet 'n Wild, North Phoenix Oas...
Continuing Education is a big part of real estate.  Sometimes we attend classes because we need the credits.  Other times we attend classes because the topic is interesting and we don't need the hours.  Today was meant for the latter. The topic was interesting and I wanted to see what information...
I had the privilege of touring a Realtor Safety - Taser International event at their facility right here in Scottsdale today.  The building is inspiring and has features inside much like you'd see on a Starwars set!  They have pods where employees can sit, plug in their laptop and work away.   Th...
