                       H A P P Y   T H A N K S G I V I N G S !
This year has been far from Ordinary for me.  Among the Many, many instances that seem to want to "break" my spirits, there were just as many that caused Great Joy.  My New Year's Resolution is to drink more from the Glass of Great Joy and be in a state of Thanksgiving throughout the Year.
If your Glass is always Half Full, the Impossible starts to happen more often.

garland: The Best Way to Chase Away a Buyer - 09/30/08 11:15 AM
The Best Way to Chase Away a Buyer is To Keep Their Focus  A W A Y  From Your Home.
I contacted a FSBO with a client dying to purchase in the Neighborhood. 
The Tour was Horrible. The home reeked of musty Drapes and age-old soiled carpet. It was too Dark; Had no Comfortable Walking Space.  It was very cluttered with offensive items. Among them were Deer Heads, a Bronzed Panther Statue, fully equipped Gun Cabinet, and live but caged, Iguana and Python. 
The fact that the Home had Gorgeous Recent Updates and was in Excellent Condition meant Nothing.  It was being overshadowed by the many Negative Distractions. And Although … (17 comments)

garland: Friends and Family Coping with Hurricane Ike - 09/24/08 06:28 AM
Today I Received a long awaited call from the last Family Member refusing to leave the Houston area during Hurricane Ike's devastating presence.  Surprisingly, like the rest of my Terribly Unwise Friends and Family choosing to stay, they were perfectly fine. Only mild Discomfort from the Electricity being out a few days and not trusting running water. Even then, they were given access to their fully powered office building.
The People I spoke to that refused to leave all said the same thing, "I didn't know it was going to be this bad." Talk about Adults needing a Spanking or Time-Out or Something.  I guess I can say what … (9 comments)

garland: Blogging! Ready, Set, And What's Next...... - 08/15/08 05:55 PM
No Wait.  Writer's block.  From an All Day long Chatty Cathy to.... Umm, Well, Errr.
Eagerly awaiting the "fuel" to shoot off like a rocket, but finding it to be a slow, more time consuming ordeal.
How can this be? At the end of a Typical Day, 5 blogs minimum, should flow effortlessly; And yet Nothing. 
Maybe revising the allotted blogging time from late night to first thing in the morning will help.  That could work if the more creative juices would flow in the morning and a typical day wouldn't start before 6am.  Lunch time? What lunch?! 
Lack of Inspiration? Absolutely not! The benefits of Blogging can be … (38 comments)

garland: Sell Your Home, Keep Your Memories - 08/07/08 08:07 AM
Time To Move   
Now that you're Selling your Home, don't forget about Your attic. 
It's hard to believe how many Families forget or elect to leave their Personal items in the Attic.  Attics are generally HOT and cramped, making the desire to Organize and Clear it out an unwelcomed and gruelling event; And if you do manage to Clear it out, where else could You put its contents. So usually year after year, Attics grow into bigger forgotten piles of Memory.
Whatever happened to those Old Precious Love Letters you haven't been able to find? Check the Attic. Remember those Heirlooms, Collectibles such as Stamps, Magazines, … (29 comments)

garland: What Others Think About Our Profession (untouched) - 07/15/08 04:22 AM
 This is a little disheartening for me. 

The immediate problem here is agent incompetence. The bigger problem is that we have a system wherein anyone that can breathe can get a license. So, incompetency reigns supreme. What other industry has 1.5 million practitioners with only approx 1 million products (homes) to sell per year???? You do the math.Comment by Tom
Unfortunately, real estate agents, for the most part, have a very negative reputation. Deservedly so, because most DON’T do their job well. Especially the last 6-8 years, all you needed to be able to do was have a pulse … (7 comments)

garland: An Old Classic - 07/13/08 03:06 PM
A Realty Salesperson had just closed on their first deal, only to discover the day after closing that the piece of land he had sold was completely under water.
"My client is going to come back here pretty mad," said the Salesperson to his boss. "Should I give him his money back?"
"Money back?" roared the boss. "What kind of Salesperson are you? Get out there and sell him a houseboat."
