I was tempted to come out swinging!  The comments irritated me, and I don't generally irritate easily. To paraphrase:We're better than YOU.  All you (fill in the blank) are bad for our profession.  There's no way YOU can be professional unless you fit OUR definitions.  It's impossible unless YOU ...

I guess at this stage of my career, I'm one of the old guys in this business. I recently heard that there are more Realtors in the US than ever before. That's a good economic indicator. When the economy is healthy, people run to sell real estate. Why? Because it's easy money, right? Aaaaa, not so...

Thankful for Life's Challenges.  Growth can be measured when stretched beyond the comfort zone. As problems present front and center, better to resolve than casting them aside to deal with later. We have all experienced disappointment, struggling some days for inspiration and strength to continue...

I was thinking for the last couple of days how many things, mostly simple, tend to make me happy. On Thursday night it snowed heavily where I live and I was sooooooo happy to be home, warm, surrounded by my gang and content. Contentment is a magical thing and is often downplayed.I have already en...

I once heard a speaker say, "It's not death we have to fear; it's not living." What a powerful statement. I don't know how many times I've had someone say, "I could never do that," about something I was doing. I'm not talking about skydiving or hang-gliding. I'm talking about living. Life is full...

 With the fires in California so prevalent in the news, we have to be so thankful for those firefighters putting their lives at risk to save others, and their homes.    Last night in Denver we had two senior living locations go up in flames putting seniors out in the cold with no where to go.   O...
