Well, another good challenge comes to an end. I published 41 entries (42 with this one), had 4 Featured, attended RainCamp in Dallas, and had lots of fun! While the 3000 points are cool, the best part is always being consistant in your blogging efforts. It's like running a marathon, you have to ...

I did an interview with Bonnie Petrie on KRLD Radio last week. It was an interesting conversation. She wanted to talk about the shift away from flipping homes to buying homes to use as income producing investments. We’ve been talking about this shift for the past several years yet the emphasis h...

I was out showing homes yesterday afternoon. As we walked the outside of the home, I noted a trail of larger ants on the white stone wall. They were blazing a trail from the ground into the house where the stone transitions to siding. Bad news! While I’m not a specialist, I’m almost certain thes...

Friday evening Gina handed the keys to a new home to her clients after a celebratory dinner at The Outback in Frisco, TX. Larry and Theresa purchased a nice home in Frisco'...

Gina and I were in the office early this morning. I had attended RainCamp in Dallas and was playing catch-up after hanging out with all the folks who came to Dallas for the event. I was finishing my second cup of coffee and Gina was on the phone trying to track down agents to schedule showings. I...

I was speaking with another broker this morning. He knows I'm not only a Texas Real Estate Broker but a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO) as well. He was telling me about a transaction that was going south quickly. One of his agents has a listed property under contract. The buyer's agent p...

The Dallas RainCamp crowd began to arrive this afternoon. About 18 of us gathered for dinner and face-time at PapaDeaux in Dallas. Phone calls were made to the missing action (Bob was stuck in Tulsa) and a good time was had by all. I had to laugh at inflation. On the original menu a Filet Mignon ...
