Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

It has been a very long and trying couple of weeks so tonight I am going to my favorite place for pizza after a Caesar salad. Simple things can sometimes be the best. I am looking forward to the meal and being out to get it. And maybe there will be chocolate cake as well. Yep, I am thinking there...
How much do you want it? My view is that almost anything is possible if the desire is real and the commitment sincere. I am working on a couple of things with limited time. I have decided I am going to give it my all. It is good to have an agenda. Got to go, working it now.
I have almost every critter here in my western Massachusetts area. Bunnies are plentiful and seen most of the year. This sweetie was by him or herself the other day in the wind and the heavy snow. I wanted to feed him but he ultimately curled up in a balland as I went out ran away.
This has been a brutal winter in the Berkshires. The temperatures have been frigid and the winds very serious.

Generally when I hesitate it is for a good reason I can't always put my finger on but in retrospect is the r...
I have found that good business like anything else that matters, can not be bought. Shortcuts are just games in my view. You can buy leads or you can work hard to get your own and then follow up until you you see progress or are told to go away. I always err on the side of marching right along. B...
No one likes to make mistake, but heck, we're all human and it happens. Whether it is a personal or a professional error no good ever comes from unresolved mistakes. Some folks just let it go but my view is, if you make a mistake, screw up or hurt someones feelings the right thing to do is simply...
It happens. You think all is well, but you made a bad decision. You are in a place that was not as it was described and the person who conveyed the information is different than you were led to believe. Do you stick it out or cut loses and accept the reality you are experiencing? It isn't always ...
