  “Sometimes in life you don’t feel like a winner, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a winner.” (Lady Gaga), from the blog Jack’s Winning Words. Jack has very eclectic taste in quotes, but he always finds a way to pull some inspiration out of them. Today’s quote got me thinking about how oriented ...
  I track sales in 9 local real estate markets that surround (or are near)  Milford – Milford (Village and Township), Commerce Township (to include Walled Lake and Wolverine Lake), Highland Township, White Lake Township, West Bloomfield Township and Lyon Township and South Lyon in Oakland County;...
“Try, and fail, but don’t fail to try.” (Stephen Kaggwa) from Jack’s Winning Words. Jack went on to talk about trying or doing things that might be on one’s bucket list, before it’s too late. I’d contend that as realtors we face this challenge every day. All too often at the end of those days the...
You’ve seen the waterfalls of Milford. Yes the plural is correct. There are at least two waterfalls in the Village of Milford. The most obvious and best known waterfall is now called the Mill Valley Falls, which is located behind the Mill Valley Strip Mall on Main street right where it branches o...
“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute for experience.” (Paulo Coelho) from the Jack’s Winning Words blog. Many of us are risk averse, we just don’t like getting outside of our comfort zone and trying new things that we see as risky. The risk may be physical danger (like in sky diving) or ...
“Either you run the day, or the day runs you.” (Jim Rohn ) from the blog Jack’s Winning Words. Boy is this saying that Jack featured today applicable to real estate. One of the things that I see a lot (and unfortunately fall into more often that I’d like to admit) are agents who come into the off...
The warm afterglow of a successful (albeit a bit wet) Milford Memories is fading fast and we turn our attention to the next big thing – the third weekend in September when the Milford Home Tour is the weekend event. That same weekend, on Sunday only there is the biggest car show in the area – the...
Distressed sales – foreclosures and short sales – still make up about 40% of the local southeastern Michigan real estate market sales (higher in a few of the markets that I track and lower in others). Of that 40% the majority in this area are still foreclosures, with short sales tending to be pre...
There is real meaning in the real estate world to be found in the words of an old Russian proverb that was posted Monday on Jack’s Winning Words - “If you’re afraid of wolves, don’t go into the woods.”   For many just going into Real Estate, the wolves in the forest may be the local big name agen...
“None is so deaf, as those who would not hear.” (Australian Proverb) from Jack’s Winning Words.   How true and how important for success in real estate. Sometimes the calliope of so-called “super star” agents focusing upon “ME, ME, ME” during listing appointments drowns out the would-be sellers’ ...
