Wherever I go, I hear the same dismal stories about "the market," "the buyers" or lack thereof, the crazy homeowners and their unrealistic expectations.  I'm beginning to feel as if I live in an alternate universe just beyond theirs, thankfully a much brighter, more upbeat place. In my world, buy...
Well it looks as though I have to thank my friend Jim Cronin once again, even if I am late to this particular party.  I've just been playing with vFlyer in its beta stage and I'm here to say I like it.  Since I'm graphically oriented, I'd be happier if there were more options for my own customiza...
Just read a post by Deb Salkeld (VA) and I was about to comment but thought it would be too long.  Her post asked about preferred method of communicating.  I remember when I got my first computer, after years of prodding by my son who implored me to "stop buying televisions and get yourself a com...
While the rest of us lament a stalled and stagnant market, Harald Grant, a real estate agent in tony Southampton on Long Island's east end, walked away with the number one position of the top 200 real estate agents nationwide.  With a staggering volume just shy of $245 million, this one time Ford...

I've spent the past several weeks working with a buyer.  They are a tech savvy couple in search of their first home (unless you count a condo they bought several years ago and are keeping as an investment).  They've done their homework and found a number of places they wanted to see.  The first t...
When taken in context, it's mind boggling to think that functioning web sites, those with domain names and content have grown from 18,000 in 1995 (as monitored by Rich Miller of Netcraft and reported by CNN) to a current 100 million.   Probably even more astounding is the fact that 27 million of ...
As I put on my goggles and climbed into my spacecraft to wander around the blogosphere earlier today I was amazed by the interest engendered by NAR's campaign to counteract the doomsayers predicting the "fall of the real estate empire."  Although there are some writers with an interesting take on...
Rich's blog tonight about "The Karma of Comments" made me think about my own evolution in this blogging business.  I'd made a rudimentary effort at it for awhile, but couldn't seem to treat it with the same sense of immediacy that the rest of my business so often demands.  It was only coming here...
