atlanta georgia cdpe: VA Loan Funding Fees and Exemptions After October 1, 2011 - 09/19/11 02:25 AM
VA LOANS
Bruce Reichstein shares complete information with us about the upcoming changes to VA regulations on October 1, 2011.
As a nation, I believe we owe the men and women who put their lives on the line for us. We owe them a chance to return and begin to get their lives in order. Especially if they have been injured, we owe them "an out-stretched hand" as they come back.
Be sure to share this information with others so our service members who are entitled to these benefits will find out about them.

atlanta georgia cdpe: Got PATIENCE? Are you a good candidate to buy a short sale home for sale? - 09/03/11 07:51 PM
OK --- How many times have we all sung this song? 
Janna Rankin Scharf, located in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, clearly spells out the situation. The big issue is that there is no way to settle things any differently no matter what the agent does. 
NO CONTROL means what it says - no control over the lender/investor to make the process move more quickly.  Our job changes from RE to PSYCH while the wait is on!

Debb Janes has a great message for all of us to share - Reminds me of the quote from Abraham Lincoln, "People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be."  
Other quotes come to mind, such as, "Attitude of Gratitude"  or "The only thing in life that we may control is our attitude."  or the famous one from Richard Campbell and often repeated by Abraham-Hicks, "SEEK JOY."
My favorite little saying is: "Good judgement comes from experience and experience comes from making mistakes."
