krista lombardi: My Top 10 Songs I Can Listen To On Repeat - 07/22/11 09:34 AM
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music. Billy Joel
1. Adele- "Rolling In The Deep"Even though many others have covered this amazing song. No one sings it like Adele.
2. The Beatles- "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"George Harrison was studying ancient Chinese text and decided to take its advice – he picked up a random book, saw the words “gently weeps” and started writing.   It’s been covered by just about everyone, and Harrison performed it solo … (3 comments)

krista lombardi: How I Learned Patience - 07/21/11 07:14 AM
 
 “Patience and fortitude conquer all things.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
 1. Write it down.  A very effective way of controlling an impulse is by learning to become aware of it. Once you are aware, you have taken the first step to controling it.  
2. What is it that sets you off? As you become aware of loosing your patience, find out what it was that set you off in the first place. Was it that your husband didn't take out the trash? Or maybe it was that your best friend is always interupting as your telling a story. Certain things will happen more frequent … (2 comments)

krista lombardi: My Unexpected Mentor - 07/20/11 09:21 AM
 
 Many years ago I worked in the hospitality industry as a concierge at a 5 Star Resort. This was a fun and new time in my life. All of a sudden I was attending celebrity party's, hanging out with sport stars and had the "key to my city". Attending comped diners at different restaurants was part of my job and research. I would regularly get invited backstage to concerts, art openings and put on the VIP list of chic nightclub's. Another part of my job at the hotel was to greet people on my VIP list for the day. This particular day I noted that Dr Maya Angelou was … (3 comments)

krista lombardi: Submit Back Up Offers On Your Short Sales, Here's Why - 07/14/11 04:51 AM
3 cheers to Bank of America!
What?  Did I say that?  One of the most notoriously difficult banks to work with?
Well, I give credit where credit is due, they did something right this time. 
Bank of America is accepting back up offers on short sale listings now. 

That means that if the buyer of your short sale does not move forward with the sale then the back-up buyer can take over without requiring the process to start again.
That saves months and months of time.  Hallelujah!

1. All things Barbra Streisand. I mean everything from Funny Girl to her One Voice Concert at " Camp Barbra" LOL

krista lombardi: Where are the Foreclosures? - 09/25/09 03:29 AM
The Update is that on September 15th the Foreclosure Moratorium Lifted.
So where are all the foreclosures?
Henry Fishkind, an Orlando-based housing economist, says some banks tell him they "are holding back [foreclosed-home] inventory" to avoid depressing prices any more than necessary. "It's in their interest" to avoid flooding the market, and regulators haven't forced them to do so, he says. That suggests that the backlog of homes headed for foreclosure will be stretched out over several years. ...
If that is the case, then we are going to see a turnaround with the housing market.  It may be sluggish, but … (5 comments)
