I've been a Realtor® for a while now...but I am still surprised by the day-to-day issues which arise during transactions. In the current environment, it seems that every new escrow has it's own novelties. It's really keeping us all on our toes. And that's OK.....this is how we learn! I have neve...

Recently I read that the majority of real estate agents are missing out on a key strategy that will yield them much higher rankings on Web search engines. Most practitioners are competing with each other over short-tailed keywords, which are just a few words strung together that Internet users t...
Or in this case uploading an HD photo to my AR Profile was worth just over a thousand points, nudging me over the 500,000 point mark.  And with that, Suzanne and I will now be joining forces on our Active Rain blog. Over the next few days we'll be updating our profile to reflect the "merge" - but...
An excellent series addressing many of the frequently asked questions about Short Sales! A "Virtual" Short Sale Presentation Series: Topic #17 - Short Sales For Other Realtors?
