By Homes For Heroes
(Affiliates nationwide for Hero Rewards)
Being the spouse of a retired Marine, I always felt that a simple "thank you" was never enough for the sacrifices that our heroes make every day.  That is when I found Homes for Heroes and joined the affiliation.  I not only found a way to say thank you but a way I could contribute in making a Hero’s dreams come true!  I have served local communities since 2001 as a Real Estate Professional and I am looking forward to working alongside and offering my continued services to some of the most dedicated people in our community.  Those are the Heroes that have not only sacrificed time, good will or dedication, but who have also sacrificed their everyday lives and continue to do so.  I am very excited to be part of this affiliation and give back to those Heroes who are all so deserving of mor...

Where is Your Wire Transfer? Wire transfers are the preferred method to send money to a closing attorney.  Very rarely does anyone bring a cashiers check to a closing.  This week the West Mero Board of Realtors sent out an email alerting members about the latest real estate scam in the area.  It seems that hackers are hacking into email accounts, and monitoring emails for key words such as closing, wire transfer, etc.   After finding these words, the hackers take over and contact buyers who are preparing for a closing that will include a wire transfer.  A typical hacked email recived by the buyer will read "The wiring instuctions sent previously have been changed.  Please have your funds wired using the new instructions in this email." The buyers send the wire using the new instructions...

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in Georgia Association of REALTORS first ever Legislative Conference at the state capitol in Atlanta. It was a very well-organized event and we as REALTORS wanted our legislators to now how important home ownership is to our neighborhood, our state and our nation.  We heard some very important people in government speak to us including the governor. After the opening rally, we spent some time with our legislators inside the capitol just outside the legislative chambers.      I first met up with Kevin Cooke & Dusty Hightower who are two young men with great energy, level headed thinking and good values.  We also met Senator Mike Crane and Senator Mike Dugan who cover the Carroll County area as Georgia State Senators. Please know that I’ve kn...

Today is FAN day.  What is FAN day you ask?  Today is the day when the members at Midway Macedonia Baptist Church in Villa Rica take time to celebrate their favorite teams, in good old fashioned Christian fellowship.   If you are near Villa Rica, GA come on out to the soccer fields behind the church, and meet some really nice Christian people who also are sports fans.  Meet me at the big RV...my sister has 60 burgers, and 60 hot dogs, plus chili waiting.

Our company built a parade float for the Peoples Parade for the 4th of July in our town of Carrollton, Georgia.  We went with the theme of "Backyard Bar-B-Q. We had a playhouse on the back of a 24’ trailer. We had agents to build a picket fence, agents who painted. We then put down green indoor/outdoor carpet for the grass, a kiddie pool with agents kids and a grill with a friend cooking real burgers.  We passed out small American flags with our company name on the stick, patriotic wrapped bubble gum, branded jar openers and small branded Frisbees. We won 1st place in the small business category!  I am so proud of our team.   Now, the real work begins. The parade is a huge advertising splash. There were probably 7 – 8 thousand people along the parade route. It was a great opportunity to...

My Temple, GA short sale has a closing date!  Yes, that's right.  I have an approval and a closing date of on or before June 15. We started the short sale journey in November of 2010.  We had one buyer walk away, but the current buyer loves the house, knows he is getting a great home at a great price, and is committed 100% to getting to closing. Although theshort sala journey has been long, and emotionally painful, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I was a short sale newbie when this started, but I have earned my stripes.  I am ready to help more sellers walk through the short sale jungle. I want to thank everyone who was a part of this.  The negotiator, the attorney's office, the lender, the buyer, the buyer's agent, and especially the seller.  We all worked hard dealing w...

I can't believe it - I got a lead from Walt Disney recently on my website. He wanted to know the value of his home here in Carroll County.  Unfortunately I couldn't help him, because he didn't give his street address on the input form. I know that people want anomonity, but good grief - could they not be more creative than that? I want to work everyday to build trust in the community that I work - so that people know I will not pester them to death. I will not make false promises. I will not fluff up the CMA just to tell them what they want to hear. I will speak truthfully - deal with them respectfully and honestly. I guess Walt really doesn't live here - I must confess though, it made me smile.   Pressing On! Dwayne

Everyone is aware by now of the importance of internet marketing in real estate. Maintaining a high-ranking site is a must for any tech-savvy agent. While website traffic is typically comprised of buyers searching for homes, a real estate website that ranks well also makes for really easy listing presentations. Generally the prospective homesellers found you on the internet and are pretty much sold on your services already. If not, a quick breeze through Google shows the homesellers how their home will be viewed more than most other properties and that is usually all it takes. The real estate marketing company that I use keeps my sites ranking well and informs me of keyword trends for local areas. Their research suggested that wasting resources on Carrollton GA SEO is not recommended du...

I remember when my children were small and they had learned to say "grace" - the prayer of thanks that we always have before diving into a meal. Thanksgiving meals are usually a feast with all the trimmings. It didn't seem to matter which one was called upon to word the prayer of thanks, they would always name every specific food that was on the table including the bread and drinks and they would also be thankful for all the people on earth as well as all the animals too!  I loved it. In fact I've tried to keep it a practice to be thankful for every single detail of my life. I don't want to leave anything out. With A Thankful Heart Dwayne

I'm watching Sunday Night Football with Jeremy and notice pink shoes, pink chin straps, pink gloves, pink cap rims, pink wrist bands, and probably others that I haven't seen.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Pink it up! We need to be reminded that there are many battles being fought by some brave women who are battle a relentless disease.  I'm priviledged to know several survivors from our church who have fought back and won. They are an inspiration to all who know them. My hat is off to O.S; J.C.; A.J.; S.B.; B.D - you ladies are warriors! Press on!! Dwayne

I love playing pool with my 12 year old. He and I play a good bit and he's getting pretty good. We played this earlier this morning and he had "run the table" and I had 6 balls on the table plus the 8 ball. I went on a little run of my own and ended up winning the game. I know some may think that I should "let him win", but he likes to play hard.  It dawned on me that, I often can get off to a fast start, but it's important to finish strong. In golf they say, "It's not how  you drive; it's how you arrive!"  I want to start transactions in a strong way and then finish them strong. I want my marketing plan to start strong and stay strong and end in a closed sale. It seems that this is a good principle in so many areas of life. Set a pace you can keep and finish strong!!   Dwayne Hicksdhic...

Our Teachers and Staff are reporting today for the first day of a new school year. I was reminded this morning of how significant these people have been and continue to be in the life of my family. My youngest son starts 7th grade and he has been influenced by some of the best if not THE BEST teachers in the USA!  They have helped him learn social skills, they underscored the values that I hold dear and they've taught him academically along the way. I pray for all teachers, school staff and central office staff, especially today, as a new year begins. I pray that they continue to love kids first and teach them secondly. I pray that they teach much more than just "book learning". I pray that they find satisfaction is seeing a child learn new concepts daily!  By the way, I will keep prayi...

I'm about ready for a vacation!  I'm getting excited too :-)  I think a vacation is a great time to step out and step back from the day to day routines of work and life in general. I love hanging with my family and I will be hanging with them all of next week at an "undisclosed location"! I had a good friend tell me the other day that I needed to take time off because I'll serve everyone around me - my family, clients, customers and agents better if I'm balanced and rested. I think I'll be disconnected from my cell phone most of the time too - ouch!  I'll probably have withdrawls. Here's to summer time and some vacation time! Pressing On!!Dwayne Hicks

My study time this morning gave me a lot to think about the word distress. It is usually associated with negative situations, but I began to see it as a positve.  Someone once told me, "the things that don't kill us ususally make us stronger".  Distress can produce a positive result.  It can reveal who you are or who you aren't. I will say that I don't love distress and/or stressful situations, but I do often like the result that is produced. The process is often painful and painstaking - but then positive. I'm gonna try seeing all of these distress sales as a positive. I've even heard people who lost all this stuff realize that all the stuff like houses, material posessions and money are not actually what defines them. I've heard them say that the distress and loss has made them realiz...
