You Simply Can't Make This Stuff Up
There's really nothing typical about real estate, although the process is routine every transaction is a story cut out of someone's life, each transaction is different and presents its own challanges....here is one of those stories.
This is just too good to let it fade away as just another Huntsville, Alabama real estate transaction...
Another agent in the office...we'll call her "Rico" since that's what we call her, has a client with land for sale; we'll call her Betty - (probably not her real name) and another client, Jim, (odds are high that's not his real name … (49 comments)

Who Says I Don't Have The Christmas Spirit? 

This should dispel any rumors that I don't have the Christmas Spirit this year or that I don't like to decorate. What you see in the photo was actually several years in the making - a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into it.  I saved and nurtured the tree that is an outgrowth of the original tree that once stood there, but was destroyed by the April 27, 2011 tornadoes. I negotiated like a pro when purchasing that ornament (This is good since I negotiate for a living). The store wanted $2.96, … (40 comments)

I guess you can never be too careful and you just never know when you might be caught unaware.  Glad I wasn't doing anything embarrassing when the Google Car drove by.  I'm in the white shirt flanked by clients and when you do a 360 our cars can be seen near us.  I was out showing a family homes in the Village of Providence Huntsville Alabama, fairly intent on the task at hand when I … (29 comments)

humor: A Beautiful Christmas Story Leftover From Last year - 12/23/12 05:29 AM
A Beautiful Christmas Story Leftover From Last year A Touching Christmas Story My Chicago buddy, Kenny, sent me a very touching Christmas Story that I thought I'd share with all of you...a real tear jerker. I hope you enjoy and have a Merry Christmas. A TOUCHING CHRISTMAS STORY A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed. Walking through the mall the surprised wife look up and noticed her husband was no where around and she was very upset because they had a lot to do. She used her cell phone to call her … (18 comments)

Showing Real Estate And Hanging With Celeb's In Hartselle Alabama
Todays Real Estate adventure was a little out of my routine area, but it was worth it because now I'm hanging with  celebrities....well, one to be exact and it's true what they say about some of those celebs in the spotlight being rather "plastic".  Don't tell anyone, but I think we're both about the same age.

This is Mary and Joe who decided to get in on the fun...just taking a break while looking at homes and hanging with the Colonel.

Mr. Postman, I don't need twelve copies of the same advertisement!
When I went to my mail box yesterday I found three envelopes (bills) and the rest of the mail box was tightly packed with catalogs.  I only subscribe to one magazine (HOG) Harley Owners Group...the rest of the rags that end up in my mail box are an annoyance.  However, this brief post is not about the rags that annoy me, this post is about the twelve copies of "Hammacher Schlemmer" I received yesterday.  Each was addressed to a different recipient and all in my subdivision, but they ended up in my … (11 comments)

Huntsville Alabama, If He Won't Move Out-Charge Him Rent
Earlier today I was out previewing property for a client and found this little critter.  It's one of the larger moths I've ever seen and he didn't want to move at my urging.  So if my buyers pick this house that apparently comes with a squatter my best advice is to charge him rent.  I placed a quarter in front of it for comparison, I believe it's called a Polyphemus.

This guy was actually still clinging to life, barely...so I scooped him/her up and placed it outside.  Hopefully it will come back … (7 comments)

On the way back to the office after showing property I was driving through a neighborhood that I've been through many times, but this was the first time I noticed this sign and had to share.  So what do you think..."Just For Grins, A Little Monday Evening Humor or a Quickie, You Decide.

Do You Know My Fearless Leader?
Anyone who knows my fearless leader also knows that she is anything, but shy and retreating.  She tells it like it is and makes no apologies...one of the many reasons I respect her so much.  My fearless leader decided to buy lunch for me and another agent in the office, Kathy York.  What is it with women and not wanting their pictures taken?  When I brought out the camera Kathy moved so fast the photo I snapped of her is a blur, but my fearless leader was backed into a corner with no escape and … (13 comments)

We Didn't Have The "Green Thing" Way Back When
I recently received this from my buddy Kenny up in Chicago and it does present another way of looking at the past and current trends in going "Green".  I'm not getting up on my soap box, but the next time someone slaps me in the face about me not being "Green" enough or the problems I left them to deal with, I'll get their email and send them this.

What's Wrong With This Sign?
On the road early this morning I passed by this sign and thought I'd share...so what's wrong with this sign??

In a town home to NASA, the US Space and Rocket Center, Space Camp and replete with more engineers and PHD's than almost any other place on earth you just have to smile at this sign.  Granted anyone can make a mistake and I know I've made more than a few, but when I came across this I just had to get a shot and share with my ActiveRain friends and the rest of the … (42 comments)

Update On My Laugh For The Day, Treasures Thrift Shop, Madison Alabama
A few days ago I wrote a post about a sign that I saw at Treasures Thrift Shop titled; My Laugh For The Day, Treasures Thrift Shop, Madison Alabama.  It's about my cousin Jeff and his wife Mary.  If you haven't read it you might want to get filled in with a little back info...before you read the rest...it's short.

So this morning around 8:30 am I get a call from Mary telling me that I'm not going to believe what she has to say.  It turns out … (20 comments)

My Laugh For The Day, Treasures Thrift Shop, Madison Alabama
I was out early picking up signs and a lock box and my route took me past Treasures, Thrift Shop owned by my cousins Jeff and his wife Mary.  So I thought I would stop in and say hello, knowing that only Mary would be there it would be a relaxing break in the day...don't get me wrong...I love my cousin Jeff, but if relaxation is what you're looking for...stop in when Mary is there!
Anyway, I walk up to Treasures front door and this is the sign that greeted me … (20 comments)
