Today, I'm going to write about "discounters". First we need to come up with a name that is more fitting. Why? Well, commissions are always negotiable so "discounter" is not really accurate. How about "Alternative Business Models (ABMs)"? For the purpose of this post I'm going to use ABMs. OK? If...
Howdy folks. Over the last few weeks I have read quite a few posts, from my peers on ActiveRain, about the struggles they are having in their business right now and their thoughts of getting out. Now folks, I'm all for the "weeding" out of our industry and I'm hoping that this more difficult mark...
Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from a Buyer who was in front of one my listings. I spoke to them briefly and made an appointment to show them the house today at 11:00. Well, later last night, I got a call from a Mortgage Broker who had the Buyers connected in on a conference call. He proc...
OK, today, I'm posting a little motivation. I figure, in this more difficult market, motivation is something we all can use. One of the things I like best about blogging is it gives me the opportunity to write about what's on my mind. Sometimes it's very light hearted and sometimes it can be very...
Today, I'm going to write about my week as a listing Broker. Not quite sure where this is going to end up but let's see what I can come up with. Maybe, it will be educational, maybe not.

A while back I had written a post titled "Your home is your castle not an ATM Machine" and shortly after that I wrote "When the wall comes tumbling down". Both of these posts were written about the same Sellers. Very nice young couple who unfortunately made a few bad decisions and ended up owing ...
OK, so I guess "60 Minutes and Redfin" is the topic du jour. I've been reading all the Blog fodder today trying to decide whether or not to chime in. Well, why not? It is an important topic and as usual I have an opinion, for whatever it‘s worth....First, I want to link to the three posts, I have...
On Monday, I wrote a post, about a Buyer that had looked at one of my listings, with another REALTOR® and had called me the next day trying to go behind her REALTORS® back and make an offer directly through me, the listing Broker. Anyway in that post I had mentioned using a Showing Agreement (SA)...
Hi folks. I don't normally post two days in a row but I need to get this one out of my head. I don't like ranting so let's see if I can turn this ridiculous situation into a learning experience. OK here goes.About ten days ago, I placed one of my listings pending. It wasn't an easy deal to negoti...
I had a call earlier today, from a Buyer, that had seen one of my listings yesterday with another REALTOR®. She called to let me know that she really liked the house and she wanted to make an offer. Now folks, I like offers, so this sounded pretty good to me. So like the good little Broker that I...
