bryant homes: New Beginnings - 02/11/10 02:05 AM
As 2010 President of the Benton, Bryant Realtors Association, I write an article entitled President's Message bi-monthly for the Daily Record newspaper.  It goes out not only to our local board, but to different people and businesses, many of them having to do with real estate, around the state of Arkansas.
A friend suggested that I post them to my blog, so here goes. 
 New Beginnings
As the New Year begins, and we look forward, we often time look back and reflect on the previous year and our personal lives.  How could things have been better?  What could we have done … (1 comments)

bryant homes: Enthusiasm - Gotta Have It! (Selling Central Arkansas Homes) - 09/30/09 04:44 AM
I, like most people, am not always the most enthusiastic person.  Sometimes we feel tired, sometimes things don't go our way or we get drawn into the whole negative world that the news media perpetuates, etc... we can always change our level of enthusiasm.  Think of children who are always amazed at discovering new things.  I personally like to draw inspiration from a couple of my TV heroes:  The late Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) and Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild).  Steve loved sharing his experiences with others and it showed.  Bear has a overall zest for life and also enjoys sharing his experiences with … (0 comments)

bryant homes: Home Sales in Central Arkansas - 09/28/09 04:57 AM
Well Fall is in the air, and home sales are really picking up here in Central Arkansas.  Many people are under the assumption that Spring is the best time to buy and sell homes.  I don't know why, but my best time has always been the Fall. Things have been looking up now for awhile and it's not a turn in the economy that's spurring on the sales - it's the fact that we never were grossly overpriced with our inventory in Central Arkansas Real Estate market like some areas of the country were. (before the economic downturn) We are truly blessed to have the new … (0 comments)

bryant homes: This Puts things in Perspective at Christmastime - 12/19/08 07:21 AM
Christmastime is the best.  As a kid, we got all tingly waiting for Santa and all those toys, intoxicated by the smell of fresh cut Christmas tree mingled with the warm smell of Mom's homemade cookies and cakes and ... I miss it just writing about it.
I try to work the local toy drive where I live in Central Arkansas every year.  I love it, but it's not always easy.  For instance, yesterday, virtually no one else from my organization showed up to help unload two tractor trailer loads of toys.  We were very blessed to receive so many toys, but needless to say, … (0 comments)

bryant homes: What the Heck!? YES, They ARE Lending Money. Don't Listen to the Media! - 12/06/08 05:58 AM
This has probably been all over the blogs already, and I'm the last one to realize this.  If so, forgive me for being a little slow to notice.  I've been to0 busy selling houses.
By now, we all know that things are tough...and folks are losing jobs, and the forecast for the economy is rocky to say the least.  And yes, we REALTORs all know that banks are still lending for mortgages - but wait!  The public does not believe this as a whole.  And yes, we all know that the national media has their agenda to push, whatever that flavor of the … (0 comments)

bryant homes: Changed a Flat and STILL Made the Next Appointment! (Central Arkansas Real Estate) - 10/31/08 11:41 AM
It was a first!  In over 13 years as a Central Arkansas Realtor I have never had the misfortune of having a flat while showing homes.  Nails in tires from showing new construction, yes, but not a blow out while in the process of showing. 
After showing one home, I noticed the wheel tugging hard to the right.  Great!  I thought.  A flat tire... My client offered to help and I was very appreciative - I didn't even know where the jack was in my new car yet.  I said "Remember in the movie Christmas Story?  ... Time me!"  to which my client replied "Fuuuddggge!"  Gotta love clients with … (0 comments)

bryant homes: Central Arkansas Real Estate - 10/29/08 03:51 AM
Well, it's my second blog, and I really appreciate all the encouragement everyone gave me in their comments.  Thanks so much, I needed that.  Sounds like you guys are a great bunch of agents that utililize Active Rain. 
One comment in particular gave a good tip:  "Don't necessarily just blog about real estate, but more about you personally..." That got me to thinking.  I spend so much time in real estate, I don't have much to tell about myself anymore.  Sure, I have hopes and dreams, pursue certain hobbies for that mythical "one of these days" extra time that I don't have yet...
