realtor: What do Football & Real Estate Have In Common? - 09/14/13 04:31 AM
                       What do Football & Real Estate Have In Common?
As I watched the opening week games, I ponder this question.
Both require dedication, hard work and perseverance.  Professional Real Estate, like Professional Football, is not a part-time job or a hobby.  It is a career.  Both require study and a willingness to learn more than is required.  Football players watch tapes, listen to experts and drill.  The best study & practice a ridiculous amount of time.  We have a heard about the athletes that show up two hours before the rest of the … (2 comments)

realtor: Listings Stale? Sellers Anxious? …or… How to save your commissions! - 09/02/13 02:20 AM
We’ve all been there. 
You listed that property (Residential, Commercial, Farm, Ranch, Land) with the intention of getting it sold quickly at the best possible price.  It doesn’t matter why at this point, but the property has not sold.  The seller might be making noises about moving the listing to another agent; they also may be working on just that, without your knowledge.
The only thing worse than sharing your commissions is getting NO commission.  If I gave you an opportunity to save some of your commissions and not only keep your client, but become a hero to them AND keep … (0 comments)

realtor: Are You Illegally Spamming The Public And/Or Your Peers? - 03/22/12 09:13 AM
I have heard complaints about emails received from realtors® that are not in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003. 

CAN-SPAM defines a "commercial electronic mail message" as "any electronic mail message the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service (including content on an Internet website operated for a commercial purpose)."   It exempts "transactional or relationship messages."
Each separate email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties of up to $16,000, and more than one person may be held responsible for violations. For example, both the … (3 comments)

realtor: House backs homebuyer tax credit extension - 06/29/10 09:27 AM
House backs homebuyer tax credit extension. 
Another step closer.  Remember, it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings!
We (Realtors, Buyers, Sellers, our economy) need this extension.  Thank you NAR for your work on our behalf.  Keep sending those "call to actions" and we will respond!
Too often we complain that no one is doing anything, without doing any research to see if that is true.  I realize that I may be in a minority when it comes to being proud to be a NAR/WAR/SAR member.  I see where my dues moey goes and I believe it is working for me … (0 comments)

realtor: Gas Prices Getting You Down? - 05/15/07 06:45 AM
I am feeling seriously pinched by gas prices.  Since I do not currently have the option of buying an energy efficient vehicle I have been looking for "cheap" gas. 
Well, there is no such thing!  However, I have found a way to find the least expensive gas.  There is a national website, from there you can choose your state & area, my area comes up as  
Anyone can go in and post gas prices real time.  You can check your area for a 24hr, 48hr or longer period of time to see where the lowest and highest prices are.  As … (10 comments)
