“I Just Received 10 Free Leads”   A couple of weeks ago I got a call from a leads company. I usually never take these calls, except I was the one that answered the phone.   The guy was pretty slick, saying we have a gift for you and that must of gotten my attention. He told me, they wanted to ver...

When I was a shiny new real estate agent, I did open houses every Sunday. Not being from this area, I didn't have a sphere to gain business from. I knew I had to get myself in front of people, and this was a perfect way to do just that.   My  broker (at the time) was kind enough to let me hold op...

  I find that homeowners often have dangerous things around their homes that they are unaware of. This post is done in the spirit of keeping homeowners vigilant as to serious safety issues--and in particular combustible gas issues.

In 3 short days (30 Sept), Google will pull the plug on its very first social network (Orkut). The vast majority of us will not miss it if we have even heard of it (it predates Facebook by a month and was actually bigger than FB in India and Brazil for several years). Sadly, it will soon join th...

Today, I sat down with a couple who is looking to purchase a Franklin TN new construction home. We did what so many of these builders do--we sat down and outlined all the things my clients want in their new home. When we were finished, the couple was in sticker shock. As is so often the case, the...

Nothing is more frustrating to me than trying to show a house when the key doesn't work. During my first year as a REALTOR I was showing property near the beach. I had difficulty with several of the locks.  My buyer said he had noticed that keys were not my strong point.  Since then I've learned ...

All the time I tell myself I'm not going back in that group, I'm not going back in that group, but it's like a train wreck, I have to look.  An agent pops in a bar raising or masterminding group and posts a question with specific details about an on going transaction and my eyes widen like saucer...
