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)

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)

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)

san diego: Are You A Good Investment or A Losing Proposition? - 09/12/18 08:50 AM
Good Investment or a Waste of Money; a Loser?
How do you see yourself?
I once heard Brian Tracy talk about the re-investment of profits into yourself, I'll paraphrase and take some liberties here:
"If I asked you to invest $10,000 in a company I saw as a great investment, gave you the prospectus and you did your homework on it discovered it would lose money, you'd pass on it. You'd in effect be saying this is a bad investment, this company is a loser. Simultaneously, if someone that has achieved what you want to achieve or had some level of success you are … (4 comments)
