lethbridge real estate: More Erroneous Media Fear Mongering - 03/24/09 12:51 PM

 
 
The following post is commentary regarding a recent article in the Globe and Mail.  The sad thing is that when much of the public reads these things, they believe that the author has at least done an adequate amount of research or has some sort of knowledge of which they are writing.  In this case, as with many others, the author of the article did insufficient research, took many things out of context, failed to verify information, and basically attempted to gain impact by adding to the clutter of negative media attention facing the mortgage market.

Hot off the presses from Google Labs, well okay actually a couple of days late.  Here is the next great feature to enhance your gmail account.  I am a huge fan of gmail and have had an account since before they were publicly available.  They continue to improve and advance the features of the product, making it absolutely essential for me.  Plus, it integrates so well with the many other free google products, such as picasa.  Here is the latest from google labs:

lethbridge real estate: Can't Even Give Money Away These Days?!?! Take It, It Is FREE! - 03/19/09 05:56 PM
Here is a social experiment.  These guys in the financing business set out to try to give away money to ordinary citizens walking down a busy sidewalk in several English cities.  They tried so hard to give the money away they even wore sandwich boards saying it loud and clear!  Of the hundreds of people who walked by the guy giving away free money, only 28 took advantage of it.  AMAZING!
 
Are you too rich, proud, stupid, busy, embarassed, or skeptical to take free money?

lethbridge real estate: Lethbridge Real Estate and Mortgage Advice from a Lethbridge Realtor and Mortgage Broker - 03/10/09 08:44 PM
It has been several months now that I have had this blog up and running, and I just wanted to take a minute and reflect upon it.  Initially, I started an Active Rain profile hoping that it would increase the profile and google rankings of my LethbridgeLoans.com website.  I wrote a few articles about Lethbridge, about Lethbridge Real Estate, Lethbridge mortgage information, etc.  I figured that it was important to have a mix of business, personal, and community content on the blog.  My main website, apart from being a great tool for accepting online mortgage applications, is an online business card.

This question is asked of me by Lethbridge real estate and mortgage customers who sometimes have little or no experience or knowledge of the benefits or difference in where they seek financing.  Customers wonder why they should hire me to help solve their financing needs vs using any of the other mortgage associates in Lethbridge or go directly to their bank or financial institution.  They wonder how can little old me compete with and consistently beat the service and the rates offered by others in the same industry.  It is much like David and Goliath.
