Currently the market is in a down turn in many parts of the nation. However, much the same way that all politics is local, all real estate is local also. Remember those three L's of real estate, location, location, and location. Well, that fact of the matter is that they still hold true. How bad...
I posted a blog a while back called Credit vs. Education. It got very poor response, in fact, it got absolutely no response at all. But since it is still important to me, I will once again Harp on the subject. I feel that we seriously need to consider educating children in school on the subject...
Call me a sceptic, but when the politicians speak, I automatically assume that they are lying. This has always been my point of view and I find that more often than not I am correct. Currently here in Columbia we have voted in a 1% increase in the sales tax. This is according to the politicians...
My wife tells me all the time that I am too sarcastic and I don not give people enough credit for who and what they are. Therefore I write this blog to give credit to special group of people who quite frankly affect us all in our everyday lives. These people are stupid people. The Darwin types, ...

My wife has now learned that the vast majority of the men in my family are not known for their longevity in life. That is, they simply don't live to be very old people. Instead the Boney men seem to feel very comfortable checking out somewhere around fifty. Being that my in-laws are seventy-thre...
Recently I wrote a blog called dressed for success. It got mixed reviews from the people who commented, and in it I stated that I feel a bit old fashioned because I feel that we as Realtors should be well dressed. For taday's old fashioned feeling, I will turn to the Internet. I wonder if many of...
