More than 20 years ago I was living in Dublin, Ireland and set foot in a brewery for the very first time in my life. Not just any brewery, of course, but Guinness! Unfortunately, I was not quite the legal age to actually enjoy a pint or half but just a few days ago I got the chance to make up for...

 Is it negotiable?  This is almost always the second question after asking for the price.  Hmm...Isn't everything in life negotiable? Many low offers have made it through to closing. You cannot insult me with a low ball offer and you should not allow the seller to be insulted.   The people who vi...

   Home buyers and sellers should be comfortable enough with their Realtor® that open discussions are always an option. If one of your "friends" tells you "how it should be done" or "how" their agent would be handling the transaction, please talk to you own agent. Tell them about the conversation...

  This would be my definition of advertising. It is my job to let the folks know we are in real estate! It is not their job to remember!   Half of advertising does not work but what we don't know is which half. Below is where this idea came. ''John Wanamaker (1838-1922) was a very successful Unit...

  In order to get the property sold...the house has to sell four or five  times. Let me explain. The first ''sell'' is to me, the listing agent. Do I want this listing? The second "sell" is to the other agent so they bring their buyers. The third "sell" is to the buyers. The fourth is to the appr...
