mls: Removing Limiting Beliefs - Today in St Louis - April 2, 2008 - 04/02/08 03:52 PM
In our March 26 Mastermind class we discussed the 5th attitude of a high achiever, from the Keller Williams Power Perspectives Session.  This fifth attitude is: removing limiting beliefs.  High achievers constantly work to reduce/overcome their limiting beliefs.  Just because they have a fear of something, they do not let that fear stop them.  They practice and work on overcoming the fear until it is no longer so stressful/fearful.  The acronym FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.  It's OK to have a fear of something; we all fear different things.  Fear just means that you care about the outcome.  Overcoming these limiting beliefs can lead us … (0 comments)

Happy April Fools Day, Everyone!  Cardinals are playing again tonight, after the game was rained out last night.  Our friends, Kim and Gary, have just called to let us know they hit a home run.  I hope they win.
At our March 19 Mastermind class at the office we covered the 4th Attitude of a High Achiever from the Keller Williams Power Perspectives course:  High achievers are learning based.
There are 4 stages of learning: 1.  The mental stage - understanding; 2.  Emotional learning - "I know it", you can see how it will fit; 3.  Wisdom - you now have the ability … (3 comments)

mls: Today in St Louis - March 30, 2008 - 03/31/08 02:26 PM
My three open houses on the Big Big Tour went well yesterday.  We had 18 people through on 3881 McDonald Ave, 16 through on 6409 Lavernell Ct, and nearly 30 on 4208 Cleveland Ave.  It was a four hour open house, so it was a long afternoon.  The weather forecasts called for rain, and it was dreary.  I'm glad as many showed up as they did.
I've been attending Mastermind classes on Wednesday's at the office from 12:00 to 1:00.  For the last few weeks, we have been talking about the six attitudes of high achievers from the "Power Perspectives" course.

mls: Feds Cuts The Rates - Does This Mean Mortgage Rates Will Be Lower? - 03/28/08 03:00 PM
"There seems to be a lot of confusion for the general public of what it means when they hear that the Federal Reserve has just cut interest rates.  This confusion is also not helped by all the mortgage companies that are advertising to call them because the Feds have just cut the rate.
The only mortgage rates that may get some help from the recent cuts are ARM rates.  These rates are more closely connected to the short-term rates than are the fixed rates.  Short term rates are what the Federal Reserve is cutting when you hear of a rate cut.
There is … (0 comments)

mls: Agent Open Houses - Beneficial or a Waste of Time? - 03/18/08 02:11 PM
I held an Agent Open House today on my listing on 6409 Lavernell Ct.  I sat there for three hours (11 -2), and did not have one single agent show up.  True, weather was pretty lousy - not cold, but rainy - we're actually under flood warnings in the St Louis area and south tonight, but I thought I would have better luck than that.  I advertised in the MLS, KWLS (Keller Williams Listing Service) and sent over 3400 email flyers to surrounding agents.  I use The Listing Widget to create and email flyers to surrounding agents.  I think it's a … (6 comments)

Happy St Pat's Day!  It was kind of a dreary-looking one, but at least the rain held off until tonight.  Most of the rain is expected from tonight on, and from the sounds of it, it will be measured in inches - so a soggy next few days.
That's not good news for my Agent Open House I have scheduled for my new listing at 6409 Lavernell Ct.  It's planned for tomorrow between 11 -2.  I hope at least one agent shows up.  Usually, I can count on a few agents from my office to stop by.  The office is having a … (0 comments)

The route travels south on Tamm Avenue, past historic St. James the Greater Catholic Church, and ends at Manchester Road.  This is a great parade, and parking is a premium - so get there early or wear your walking shoes.

They don't come much cuter that this Holly Hills ranch & the location doesn't get much better, either - a cul-de-sac street within walking distance of Carondelet Park. The covered front porch welcomes you into the livingroom with ceramic tile entry. The large eat-in kitchen is bright & clean, with wood cabinets & the refrigerator stays. 3 bedrooms & bath complete the 1st floor. If you … (0 comments)

mls: Is paying extra for Realtor.com enhanced listings worth it? - 03/12/08 03:33 PM
I have a seller who is wanting to see more pictures and text on his Realtor.com listing.  I already have uploaded the virtual tour (www.realestateshows.com) to the site, but he feels that's not enough.  I've contacted Realtor.com, and I fall into the 11-25 listing category (I know, I historically haven't been a large listing agent, working more with buyers), it will cost $71 per month. 
That doesn't sound too bad, but I swore I would never give Realtor.com another cent of my money.  Several years back, I had a website and domain name through them.  I cancelled the website and they … (14 comments)
