realtor: Signs, Signs, everywhere there's signs..blocked out by the scenery, and wasting my time...(sounds kinda like TESLA)..REDUX - 07/13/09 05:26 AM
I thought about my blog long and hard since last week...I originally published it with the statement listed below, but for some, that wasnt good enough...Sooo...contrary to my thinking, I decided to pull it, or take it down.  This was VERY discouraging to me, because in the end all I was trying to do was help.  I have/had more faith in the quality of the Realtors on Active Rain than in general because everyone on here seems to WANT to learn more!~  I am even LEAVING some the comments so everyone can read the intial ones left, as I have never been … (58 comments)

realtor: Insurance agents, PLEASE get with the program!!!! - 05/21/09 12:48 PM
Often times, what inspires myself and clearly many others to post a BLOG is either an everyday occurrence, or in some cases an argument!  Today, that is what happened to me....a stubborn, stupid, argument, and of all people it was with an Insurance Agent!





 
 


Now, just to preface this blog...My father was an insurance agent for 30 years, and I grew up around it my whole life!  Many times, I even tell the story about how when the roof blew off the YMCA, my brother & I, even at a young age....helped … (11 comments)

realtor: Do you have a "Major League" mentality?...or AAA? - 05/21/09 09:44 AM
Last Wednesday, I took a late flight down to Nashville, TN, to help a friend get acclimated into her new home.  While there, I went to a AAA baseball game in Nashville, ( A Milwaukee Brewers affilitate), and a AA game in Knoxville TN, (A Chicago Cubs affiliate).   WOW, what a difference...Not only in appearance, but also in the way the franchise carried themselves, and how they put their "product on the field".   I have always known, being the baseball fan that I am, that MANY good MAJOR LEAGUE baseball players jump straight from AA to the pro's, and that AAA … (16 comments)

realtor: Trust & Cooperation! The key to the Realtor/Lender Working Relationship in Wisconsin - 12/09/08 05:49 AM
Over the course of my 20+ years  in the mortgage industry, I thought that I had heard it all, seen it all, done it all, and could forecast it all!  It is very clear to me now that NONE of these things are true!  However, I do clearly understand that there is, and always has been, a serious "cloud of doubt" hanging over the heads of lenders, as well as  a "cloud of dis-loyalty" hanging over the heads of realtors. This blog posting is quite frank, so please don't take offense!  We have to work as a team in order to survive, … (0 comments)
