  • Rented some office space at my office so my husband will quit complaining
  • Reworked business plan to make buyer's agents more accountable

Mike..thanks for the forum to be proud..not a real estate comment at all.

         You see my 15 year old High-school Sophomore came home with a Report card with 7 "A's" including a 100 average in Advanced Algebra, Honors Chemistry and honors Geometry, he's been asked to play guitar in a College jazz ensemble, and in the State tract meet Tuesday came in first in the long jump, 2nd in the 100 yard and 3rd in the 200yrd. Pretty good week for my Son and his proud father.  Steve   :o)

Hey Mike, It's been a good week out here in Phoenix, AZ.  Got two more listings, a contract accepted by the bank for one buyer, picked up 3 new prospects, and submitting two offers for another client of ours.  Things are really starting to cook down here in the Valley of the Sun.

First, my plane took off successfully from Oklahoma and landed successfully in Los Angeles. We have a verbal acceptance of a short sale offer despite the fact that the Realtor doesn't know the rules. Finally, the Texas Governor has threatened secession from the union. That means that Oklahoma University won't lose to UT next year. Oh yeah, I have been cancer free for six weeks. The Police wrote a great song called "Every Breath I Take". That says it all to me.

Hi Mike -- I'm glad life is good, thanks for sharing, and Spring is always a great time in real estate, as things pickup.  They are picking up for me as well, and I hope the same for everyone else.

Best of all, the Cleveland Cavaliers are in the playoffs with good chances this year! Go CAVS!!! :-)

This has been a fabulous week! I took 2 listings and will take another tomorrow. I've received 10 offers on one listing this week. I got to see Jenny Lewis at the Empire in Sacramento. I've figured out a way to optimize my time by referring out some business. Closed two escrows. I've made a couple new friends. And I found out my book will be released early on May 15th.

Although I was sick all week with allergies or a cold, not sure which, and was coughing my head off all week I took a listing on Tuesday and spent four days with out of town buyers who will be making an offer tomorrow on the home they chose.  I had to physically push myself this week.

I love this post!  It was a stressful week, but looking back...here's the good stuff!

1.  I get a tax refund-can you believe that?  Overpaid the ES.  ES for 2009 is lower as well.

2.  Previous client came back to Houston and bought a house from me!

3.  Negotiated a short sale.......it's will work out....it will work out....

4. Listed a home in the older part of Houston and I have FIVE offers on it.

5. Celebrated my birthday on April 15th (yes, that is correct) with my family (including the cutest identical twins on the planet-but then GMaw may be a bit predjudice) 

6. Got a buyer who will be relocating from Angola (oil business is alive and well in Houston)

7. Sold a listing that had been on the market for months.

8. And it took this post to remind me of the good stuff and not the stress that came with it.  Life is good!!!!!

1. Had a previous client call and ask us to reserve half a day in May - her brother wants to buy a vacation home here in Colorado.  They're also looking for an investment property they can fix up.

2. Had a client give the go ahead to start looking for a home to buyer.

3. Went live with a new listing and despire the abundent snow we're having we have our first showing scheduled today.

4. Had a buyer authorize a price reduction (they were going to update then decided not to so we had to address the homes value).

5. Celebrated our dad's 78th birthday!  You go dad!!
