buyers: Getting ready for the weekend - 08/15/08 03:14 PM
     Well well well.  The week goes by so fast.  Now enter the weekend.  Oh yes, get ready for the Open House this Sunday!  Oops.  It is sooo easy to get caught up during the week calling clients and customers (potential clients), sending and returning e-mails, networking, running errands while out grabbing a bite to eat, researching the local market, playing with son in evening, communicating daily "happenings" with wife, catching some sleep, losing sleep... 
     Wow.  Now it's Friday night, Toastmasters in the morning, getting computer fine-tuned in the afternoon, watching son while wife tries to have a life with friends later … (5 comments)

buyers: Attention Buyers...or Prospective Buyers (Part 2 of 2) - 06/18/08 03:44 AM
 Funny thing about timing. Sometimes we’re on, sometimes we’re off. When it comes to real estate, regardless of the choices and consequences, some of us made money and some of us lost money. As if watching the rising temperatures, price of gas, food and basic commodities wasn’t enough to be concerned with, many of you are stressing out trying to figure out “if it really is the time” to get out there and buy a house.
