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 was early morning a couple of days ago. I was looking out my bedroom window to my backyard. It was one of those rare moments in the last couple of weeks when it wasn't raining hard. I saw these two land and interact. I didn't have my camera but I got it and they were still there enjoying each ...
I am headed out to get my car serviced. It hasn't been driven all winter but when I moved it last week to take something off the wall, it indicated I was 5500 miles over my B service. I am due for a state inspection so I am taking the car in to get it done so that I can pass inspection. I hate it...
Blogging provides different things for different folks. When I first found Active Rain I wasn't even sure what a blog was. After awhile I discovered that if used as a marketing tool it could and does make the phone ring. Eventually I started to know some people who were experienced, wise and kind...
In my home, the gang of four rescue dogs who I call family are always positive. They have up and down days like the rest of us but they never pass judgments, hold grudges or forget to be happy. I have always felt safe and loved and appreciated my my gang and today I am really grateful for that an...
I have a space in a local Antique Gallery where I work on Sunday's. I buy and sell all the time and I have placed some new old things in the last week. I share these things here because I have been asked to and because maybe someone will find something they just have to have.
I love working in my yard and seeing things bloom and colors everywhere. And so I probably jumped in too soon and bought a bunch of annuals to place around and compliment the soon to be busy forsythia and perennials just beginning to peekaboo. But then there was a frost. The beautiful red impatie...
Monday was yesterday and tomorrow is Wednesday. Today is Tuesday and it is all I have so I am going to use it fully. I have a big list and I hope to hit it running. I am ever aware that life is fleeting and time is the most important component. So that said....off I go.
In my many years in real estate I learned early on that what people most wanted was to be listened to and really heard. So instead of opening with a formal presentation I asked what the people I was sitting across from could imagine as their perfect scenario. It was amazing what I learned from th...
After the most recent episode of religious hatred resulting in death and destruction, a Rabbi I saw on television said what I was thinking.......talk is just talk. As long as actions do not change nothing will be different when we hear about the next tragedy. So I got to thinking that this certai...
I am fast: fast at almost anything I do. Yesterday I was on a ladder at my space hanging some things and left the hammer on top. When I moved the ladder the hammer feel off and hit me in the head. There was a lot of blood and my colleague froze and ran away. Fortunately there was a nurse in the s...
