This entry is a follow up to my previous one regarding the HUGE Freddie Mac loss that was posted this week ($821 Million).  Consider this: 3 banks that suffered large losses recently gave humongous rewards to their leaders.  I'm specifically referring to: Citigroup's Ceo Charles Prince who left t...

Ever have those days when the weather is so grim, it matches your business outlook exactly? I had a day like that yesterday.  So I figured to hustle up some business.  How?  No, I don't do cold calling or knocking on doors. I went to our "basement vault" where we file all our closed deals.  These...

As if gas prices weren't enough bad news, we now learn that Freddie Mac has posted a $821 million LOSS as compared to last year's $729 million in revenue... Want to know what Mr. Bernanke is doing about this?  Nothing. He is taking the wait-and-see approach; it seems he fears "inflation".  What??...

This morning we had a historic photo shoot at our Board; it was to be a picture of the entire membership taken in front of the Conway railroad for our state's time capsule.  I checked that everyone was wearing their realtor "R" pin (even though the picture probably won't show it)...we all wanted ...

As a fairly new blogger, I was a bit put off by some bloggers addiction to acquiring points.  Are they really important?  I got into blogging for a couple of reasons:  1. my business is a bit stalled right now and I wanted to jump-start it.  2. I like to write.  3. The networking and relational o...

I can't believe it! After spending time and effort and money on doing an awesome (if I do say so myself) video of our little pond - Pequawket Pond, here in Conway, NH someone saw it on U-Tube and confiscated it for another website.  Is that legal?  Now that I've had some time to digest this, i am...

Ever have a house that was the listing from ????  I had one like that; repugnant, smelly and every room had a different color paint job.  Instead of trying to remodel the entire home, why not capitalize on its obvious deficiencies? First, price it so that it will sell and that may mean below mark...

I have a 34-lot subdivision listed and have been racking my brain as to how to spread the word around the neighborhood.  We finally hit upon a formula that works! We took an inexpensive tent (can be easily bought at WalMart), only takes minutes to assemble as it is the accordion type.  Then took ...

"You're a realtor and you have NO emergency fund?" I was incredulous when one of my fellow agents said that she had to get a part time job because she had failed to put aside funds for a rainy day...in this market, without an emergency fund, it could spell disaster. Years ago, my mentor was a guy...

My grandmother always called me "her little gypsy!"...it seems when I was young, I was always wandering away from adult supervision!  It seems to have carried along into my latter years, as I find myself travelling around the country in a motorhome (and now living in one as our new home is being ...
