windermere real estate southland: People come "As Is" too! - 02/19/10 03:56 AM
Keep in mind that homes aren't the only thing that come "As Is." Buyers and sellers come in all sizes, shapes, demeanors and personalities. You may be able to change a home to suit you but it is unreasonable to think you can alter anyone else.
You can improve a home by:
applying a fresh coat of paint replacing the carpet installing new countertops freshening the landscape updating old fixtures purchasing new appliances   You cannot force people to improve unless they want to even in the most ideal situations or scenarios. As soon as you accept people for who they are, … (15 comments)

Last week I received a gift certificate for a Golf Lesson from the Golf Pro at Entrada Golf Club, a private golf course surrounded by luxury custom homes located in sunny Southern Utah. Hmmmm...I wonder what he will teach me opposed to what I may learn.

windermere real estate southland: Speechless Sunday (almost!): Southern Utah's Landscape Expert, Mother Nature! - 01/10/10 06:09 AM

You may ask, "How does she do it?"
I do not question her methods, I just know that it simply works! My eyes wander over, around and through the surrounding southern Utah landscape and I'm constantly amazed how she places a plant here, a bush there with just the right amount of rock to complete the look.
Yes indeed, Mother Nature does this without cost and her payback is the enjoyment of knowing she has done her job and has done it well!

windermere real estate southland: You either make the commitment by Jumping In! or you don't. - 01/03/10 04:26 AM

Everyone knows that a cat doesn't like to get its paws wet, so it will LEAP great distances to avoid water in order to get to their intended destination. Real estate is not an industry for testing the waters. You either make the commitment by Jumping In! or you don't.
 
Mary Yonker's post http://activerain.com/blogsview/1407685/real-estate-career-part-time-vs-full-time-inspired me to write this post. (Thank you Mary.) She discussed training, time commitments, schedules, family support and I must agree that in order to become a successful real estate agent, you must make a full time commitment.
