orange county ca realtor jill murty: Whatever You Do, Keep Moving - 03/27/18 10:30 PM
This isn’t a real estate pitch, but…. if you’re thinking about making a move, contact me. 
This is a departure from real estate and very important.  It’s about mobility.  Mobility is the gift we have, but often don’t appreciate until we lose it or see someone we love losing the ability to do everyday things for themselves.
Imagine a situation where you needed assistance to stand up, to get to the bathroom and to perform basic hygiene tasks.  If assistance doesn’t arrive in time, well, you know what would happen.  You wait for someone to help you get cleaned up and changed into … (3 comments)

orange county ca realtor jill murty: Maybe It Was Because Your Counter Offer Sucked - 04/03/16 12:35 PM
That's what I told an agent today.
 
I'm representing a buyer who just submitted an offer on a property.  The listing agent said she'd send a counter offer.  She emailed it and then sent me a text message saying that my email bounced her counter offer.  Thanks Cox.  But that's another story.

As it turned out, my buyer client accepted the counter offer and we're opening escrow … (11 comments)

orange county ca realtor jill murty: I'm Taking a Flag Poll! Let Me Know What You Think. - 10/09/15 03:00 AM
 I'm Taking a Flag Poll.
Let Me Know What You Think!
 
I'm considering doing a promotion where someone would win a painting of an American flag and I'd like your opinion.
 
Here are two quick, rough sketches; one abstract and the other more traditional.  
 
The artist said he drew the abstract with the National Anthem in mind: "rocket's red glare" "bombs bursting in air" "....our flag was still there."  Other examples were the Fort Sumpter flag and the 9/11 flag survived and were raised and flown tattered.
 
The actual paintings will be finished.
 
Please let me know which version you prefer.  Thanks for your input!
