I was in a bit of a funky mood today and I couldn't figure it out.  I posted on Active Rain for the first time in over three years; I was trying to drop a backlink for a post on my San Diego mortgage blog.  Bob Stewart reached out to me, over the summer, and invited me to start posting here again...

Where are they?   They signed up.....   I was looking for a REALTOR  (in Colorado) that signed on and set up a profile today and found 6,521 total that have signed in, and some have started a profile.   Some even wrote a few posts, but then disappeared.    Guess they had no idea had they stuck wi...

I was making my usual Saturday rounds running errands, a stop at Fred Meyer for a few groceries, dropped off my shirts at the Renton Cleaning Center and a quick stop at McLendon Hardware to get a few things I needed for a weekend project. As I was walking back to my car I couldn’t miss this big o...

Even though I have "been in real estate" as a real estate attorney since 2001, real estate sales is pretty new to me.  When I obtained my real estate license in 2010 I already possessed valuable skills that I had developed from my experience representing clients in my law practice.  However, I al...

 Opportunity is Knocking if you are listening....   In Woodbridge Virginia we have had a very robust market this year most price points have seen home sales outpace the last several years.

The Art of Client Selection . . . Fine Tuning Over The Years There was a call left on my voice mail last week.   The introduction was nice enough, then got a little rambling.  A caller who is going to retire in about 3-years wants to find a place here in town, rent it out, then move upon retireme...

Would you ask your auto mechanic about brain surgery? No? Why not? I hope the answer is because he is not qualified to give advice about brain surgery or is not trained to perform it. I've never asked my physician about auto mechanics either. It's not his area of expertise.  So, why do so many ho...

Old US Naval Bi-Plane One of the joys of photography for me is capturing images that are unique and different but also part of Living the San Diego experience. This photo was taken a couple years ago at the Naval Centennial Flyover. Naval Aviation had a very strong beginning in part due to the im...
