losses: YOUR EXCUSES ARE YOUR OWN - 12/14/19 07:05 AM
Here is a subject that causes discomfort starting with the one doing it first and then with anyone else it can rope in. Question: Have you ever heard someone pitch enthusiastically their excuse as if it was the gospel truth? For a person to do this they first had to convince themselves. Then, to make it stick convince you too
OWNING UP
Admitting what went wrong or how it could have gone better doesn't occur to the one who is in denial. NO. A story is manufactured and edited using the mind, emotions and five senses which add drama, scenarios and conjectures. In other words a … (23 comments)

losses: BREAKDOWN MEANS CHANGE APPROACH - 08/08/19 01:16 PM
We have methods, procedures and established ways of doing most everything unless we go custom and we then all agree to that. In our established ways and means, when all goes well it ends well as expected. But what if there is a hiccup, a failure or worse an unexpected human nature twist that adds fuel to the fire or suffocates it? What then? When something doesn't go right WE must keep going until the reason we came together is realized

losses: THE PUBLIC AT LARGE DOES NOT KNOW - 02/09/19 08:05 AM
Agents, family, friends and people at large are all aware in general about various subjects but does that mean they know what they are talking about? This question applies to all careers, practices and endeavors one can pursue. I know a little bit about everything as my seeking and wanting to know ability runs at optimum however does that make me a master of the subjects or the products for that matter?

losses: BUYERS PAUSE FOR THE REAL ESTATE CYCLE - 08/16/18 02:00 PM
We forget that there are swords that cut both ways and a good reminder is to get slashed by one. What if we put something up for sale and it doesn't sell? First answer is a no-brain-er. We lower the price. What if that doesn't work? We make some curb repairs? What then if that doesn't produce? Get some good marketing going. However, what if all the collective-buyers as in BUYERS MARKET just say no! Then we have a Real Estate cycle coming to an end and getting ready to shift

losses: EQUIFAX FIASCO - 09/28/17 10:51 AM
How in the world can a third party (Equifax) gain access and is given permission over personal information that consumers released because they had to. At no time did a consumer agree to release the data to others. Some deal was struck between this company and the government. This is the injury
THE INSULT TO THE INJURY?
This system whatever it is or was failed and we the people are injured by the failure and are now considered collateral damage. I'm sorry doesn't cut it! How in the world can a company have this much power over nearly half the population of the United States boggles … (8 comments)

losses: REAL ESTATE LOOKS SO EASY - 07/17/16 11:40 PM
The buying and selling of Real Estate is the one topic that everyone has something to say about some more than others. Its everywhere, its part of the American dream, it affects peoples lives and provides for the most basic necessity of all commonly known as shelter. It can reward or bury you depending on so many factors. Practicing or playing with this subject using real money and life circumstances is not recommended

losses: INVESTMENTS ARE THEIR OWN WORLD - 07/14/16 02:32 AM
You can invest in anything. People, places, things with some giving returns and others just for the sake of it. There are carefully laid out plans for the long term plunge and for that certain set of speculators, the short term, where they play hunch or follow-up those butterflies in the stomach. Investing is a way of life and offers what they call and commonly refer to as RISK
THE FIRST KISS WAS A RISK

losses: RENT INCREASE - 05/24/16 12:23 AM
As a property manager, I dislike rent increasing as much as I dislike firing someone. Those are my personal feelings on the matter. However, I am capable of carrying out instructions from the owners to increase the rent and I do. I also feedback to the them what took place after wards. Before that, we explore the pro and the con...
THE BEGINNING
When we originally rent a property out, that is the time to bring it current with the market. Once in the market place, if priced right, in good condition and can be shown, it will prove itself one way or the other. At … (8 comments)

losses: RISK - 11/16/15 11:26 PM
This subject of risking exists for a reason and it can benefit the human or cause harm. What actually takes place if allowed or engaged as well as the results, depend on the person who activates or triggers the risk. There are risks that lead to growth, gain and allow us access to never before seen and heard places and others that lead to ruin.
CALCULATED
There are calculated risks, the thought out, discussed type that when through assessing, one concludes it is safe to launch and they do. They have a specific aim or want and move toward that direction knowing how … (2 comments)

losses: WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT E & O ??? - 07/28/15 11:49 PM
I asked a question in the Q & A section in regards to Errors and Omissions insurance ( E & O) and it got a fair response from my peers. You know when we all get together and discuss anything, it has to reveal itself case in point. What I gather from all the comments is a couple of interesting things. Errors & Omissions insurance you say?
PAY-UP!
Many report that it is mandatory to have or no license or no practice. Fascinating. What made this a rule or a requirement I wonder? What it is saying is that agents who practice in the Real … (42 comments)

losses: IF YOU HAD TO START ALL OVER - 08/27/14 08:03 AM
Would you be better for it or bitter for it? You see experience and knowledge that comes with learning as you go it is undervalued at times. WHY? Fear followed closely by doubt does it. It tries to "take away" from what you know. Something goes wrong and your world goes to pieces. More accurately, it is your comfort zone that crashed not the world.
A MATURE MAN SHARES
I worked with a extremely wealthy man who went through the depression and two world wars for over a decade. One day, he made a statement to me, a young naive married man who could not appreciate the … (11 comments)

losses: LEAKAGE DO YOU HAVE LEAKAGE? - 07/28/14 03:00 AM
What a fascinating premise to consider both in business and in the social arenas too. Loss of results can come from many sources and can be caused by a myriad of factors too. Loss or leakage is not accidental but instead revealing. We want to know if we have a leak in our systems. Why are we not getting our needs met is the first response to set-up getting them.
HIT OR MISS?
Where are we failing? What is interfering with hitting target or accomplishing mission? It could simply be some small over-looked item or dynamic that may be hidden in the shadows or escapes the broad and … (4 comments)

losses: LEARNING TO SWIM THE BUSINESS GROWTH STROKE - 05/15/14 03:01 AM
I managed to get a dream job back in 1972 working with a retired pharmacist who was a multi-millionaire. This man went through the depression and a couple of world wars and figured a few things out. When I met this gift mentor, he had three thriving Real Estate companies
PARTNERSHIP WITHOUT INVESTMENT
That's what the ad said when I found it. I was young, naive and by chance (?) answered the ad via snail mail that I was interested. No resume, no cover letter just a I am willing to work and sent it off. I forgot all about it until one day, … (12 comments)

losses: ITS MY FAULT FOR HAVING $100 - 11/05/13 01:17 AM
I went to a place of business for fun. I was going to purchase something and stood in line. The names and locations are not disclosed to protect the innocent. I wait and wait at this busy place and then my turn comes. Me and my wife, in our sixties, low key, honest decent people out spending money order up. I go to pay with a hundred dollar bill

losses: SHORT SALES PLEASE "SAIL" AWAY - 02/17/13 10:57 PM
I know that many Real Estate agents rose to the occasion of the Real Estate crash and took on the Short Sale dynamics and prevailed. Pure chaos when this introduced itself remember? Couldn't get through to the banks with phone calls, documents lost, files misplaced, different personnel every week and then it became the norm. Let me remind all you professionals and lovers of business of something

losses: LANDING THE REAL ESTATE PLANE - 08/04/12 08:40 AM
Think how easy it is to drive a car. If it was like having to drive an airplane, many of us would take public transportation. An airplane while looking easy is not easy especially to someone who has never flown one. For those that are licensed to fly, an experience and a second nature develops. No different in any professional arena

losses: INFIGHTING AMONGST THE HEIRS EVERYONE SUFFERS - 05/27/12 11:44 PM
A few years ago, I saw a senior medical facility that could be converted into condos. There were many problems to over come and in time, they would all be addressed accordingly. One main issue was adjacent to this property was a medium size piece of land that would be perfect for complying with the parking per unit requirements of the conversion
CONVERTED WE HAVE POTENTIAL
The people who owned the existing facility were available, flexible and wanting to do a deal. But they wanted to sell the property AS-IS which unfortunately has no real value that can offer a good return on investment. … (4 comments)

losses: CALIFORNIA EXCELLED AT UNDERWATER HOME SALES 2011 - 02/20/12 05:51 AM
It has come to my attention that the dubious honor of having nearly 40% of all home sales in California come from distress like short sales and foreclosures is upon us edging out every other state in the union. What a mess, but very revealing at the same time. Anytime you have sales where someone loses money, well to put it mildly, this is not normal business. But what is normal business?
WHAT THE BUSINESS AT HAND IS
One can argue that the business at hand is normal. Short sales are here and that is what we do and will continue … (5 comments)

losses: FIVE FINGER DISCOUNTS DONT DO THIS - 12/12/11 09:20 AM
It was said and written and that you will always have the poor...the poor in spirit is what comes to mind for me. When you add temptation to that poverty, you get wrong conduct essentially backwards living. Live spelled backwards is evil and we do well to be aware less we fall to it
GETTING CAUGHT IS NOT PLEASANT
I have seen people caught in their temptations. They give into the dark moment, and then it pulls them in right to the second and BAM..the deed is done. Another poor soul caught in the trap. Then, the reaping of that planting … (4 comments)

We have some things we can quickly explore and then implement that will bring this man-made debacle to a slower pace and finally back to a healthy normal Real Estate cycle. It will involve taking action and not looking back with the banks having to respect the math and the circumstances
DEATH BY DROWNING
How do we free the millions that are trapped underwater in loss of value and with high interest rates holding them down. Federal efforts aimed at the foreclosing have failed to hit their mark thanks to banks lack of support and in all fairness the complex inter-related … (0 comments)
