 I was on the phone talking to a mortgage lender  and about to head out the door when the doorbell rang. Peering out the sidebar of my front door, I saw 2 individuals.  A well dressed lady was on the stoop and an elderly gentleman leaned against the brick wall that framed my entryway. When I open...

 If you were in Grand Rapids, Michigan today, you know that it was one of those days in which only those forced to work or those obsessively dedicated to work are doing so.  A brilliant blue sky framed picture perfect clouds.  It's the sort of day that makes one think of picking up an ice-cream c...

You asked for it so she did it. "Daddy, can I talk on the phone while I drive?" I have to be honest, she is a mini-me.  I love to talk on the phone while I drive.  I have talked with a few people that say, just a minute let me pull over so I can talk with you.  I respect them and don't continue t...

  Hiring a real estate agent to sell your home is an important task.  Most of us are far more skilled at answering questions when searching for employment than thinking of creative ways to interview a real estate agent to help us to sell our home.  Since standard questions are often anticipated, ...

Ok, so I have been blessed with 3 sales the last 7 days.  Is it right to start telling about them, because what happens if something falls through?  2 are brand new homeowners, and one has owned before.  All three had nothing to sell which helped them in negotiating great deals. I already know th...

 Have you noticed new members have started to pick up?  We are now over 45,000 members.  I remember (now I sound like my parents or grand parents)  when I first joined in March we where under 20,000.  So now our opportunity value has grown substantially.
