san diego: Get After It: You Can Take It With You - 03/04/22 07:39 AM
"Each of us is the accumulation of our memories."
~ Author, Ann Loy McGinnis
 
 
Your action for today
is to see if you can create
a memorable experience.
Because, it is my belief,
the only thing we take with us
when we crossover to eternity,
is the love and the memories you create
during your brief time here on Earth.
 
 
Those memories you create with others, 
is your legacy when your gone
and
your eternal life as you are remembered.
How will you be remembered?

san diego: Take Action: Laugh At The Mirror - 08/20/21 05:07 PM
"Whoever undertakes
to set himself up as a judge
of Truth and Knowledge
is shipwrecked by
the laughter of the gods."
~ Albert Einstein
 
Your action for today
is to find something
about yourself
to laugh about.
 
 
I post ball-bustin' comments occasionally
in the Q&A here and on social media,
...when I see an opportunity for levity.
 
Ball-bustin' was an expression of love
and inclusion in my neighborhood.
 
I'm mostly amused (and slightly saddened)
by the fragile tempers,
the easily offended
and the high & mighty 
that just throttle right past the obvious joke-
i.e. the  laugh and go straight to their anger.
Let's lighten up, let's laugh more … (16 comments)

san diego: Work Hard in The Summer, Brag in The Winter - 07/22/20 06:46 AM
Work Hard in The Summer, Brag in The Winter
A  real estate, licensed in 2012, walked outside his office on a warm sunny San Diego morning and proclaimed, "It's a sunny day, I did that!"          
“No…no you did not. You just showed up.”, as Coach Bill Hart would say.          "The sun was there already, you can't take credit for it."
"Sold in 1 hour, with 20 offers; I'm the best Agent!" 
The sunny day was provided to you by some other force of nature, which we can't take credit for (and many of us were here long before this sunny … (16 comments)

san diego: Pause, Plan, Pivot, Proceed! - 03/28/20 01:05 PM
Pause, Plan, Pivot, Proceed!
I’m sharing a philosophy I practice, born of deeply personal events in my life. I’m not preaching at you, nor do I seek converts; I'm simply sharing and I know you can think for yourself...chew the meat and spit out the bones.
I will not buy into the media sensationalized hype, I will not abide negative chicken little people and I will not cower in fear even, though I am aware of the seriousness of this virus and the state of the world. I believe the responsible thing to do is stay home, stay healthy and not hoard supplies. I understand … (26 comments)

san diego: Uncertain Times? Certainly Not! - 03/23/20 09:25 AM
Uncertain Times?  Certainly Not!
 Remaining positive and productive while staying informed.
 
 
I certainly am going to work out daily, as usual. Staying healthy is critical. I just won't do it at the gym. (5 mile hikes with my dog have been my exercise of choice 5x week).
I certainly will shower and dress for work each day. I just have a really short commute to my home office across the hall.
I certainly will limit my exposure to sensationalized, fear mongering news. I will stay informed through a balanced and trusted "mutual fund" of resources.
I certainly will work in my business per "usual". I just won't … (45 comments)

san diego: Are Real Estate Agent Activities Essential Services? - 03/23/20 06:39 AM
We are part of the big three immediate basic needs: Food, Shelter & Clothing. However, in California (and anywhere else in the USA a state's mandatory "shelter in place" order exists). it's important to know the California law does not, so likely your state doesn't either. Mitigate COVID-19 now for the 2.5 weeks we were ordered to and help us return to health and work sooner, otherwise we're looking at longer shelter in place downtimes.

COVID-19 San Diego And California
 As a business owner #SmallBusinessStrong, husband, father and good neighbor I'm staying positive, calm and keeping informed. The risk of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) for the general San Diego County population remains low. Take precautions, be safe and sane with common sense decisions. It's business as usual for me so far, in fact our real estate market is busier than 2017 when we had seemed to peak. This too shall pass (as did the previous 6 pandemics in the last 17 years). This too shall pass and then how will we remember our actions, behavior, competence … (12 comments)

san diego: You Get the Talent That You Pay For! - 10/10/19 11:00 AM
You Get the Talent That You Pay For!  
 
If my work looks easy or I get your home sold in hours not days or weeks, it’s because I’ve spent 21 years (so far) annually training  and weekly working in the trenches to have that talent. You pay me for the knowledge, skills and years invested, not the time it took me to get your result. You Get the Talent That You Pay For.

san diego: Bold Predictions for Real Estate 2019 - 01/04/19 08:51 AM
Bold Predictions for Real Estate in 2019:
The National Market and Our Local San Diego, CA Market
Doom & Gloom? No! The market is looking great and stable! More inventory is coming, prices are stabilizing, and rates are still incredibly low. Good time to buy and sellers can still get a good price as the market is still moving relatively quickly nationally; the economy is strong and unemployment is low.
 
Prices and units sold are going to about the same (flat) locally in San Diego as 2018 and see a slight increase nationally. San Diego’s price point is higher than the national average to … (15 comments)
