Time and Time again, I have proven that there is no such thing as no comps.   Have you ever worry about your listing not getting appraised? Just last month, my listing went under contract. It is a home which is tastefully remodeled by my seller. However, the buyer for this specific home is not to...

     I got an email asking if I have enjoyed my 3 years in Real Estate.  Huh?  I've been in Real Estate for 30 years.  They must have made a typo.  Then, I was mentioned in a Blog; the author states that "Fred has been in Real Estate for 3 years."   What is up with this???      A quick look at my...

I lost one of my favorite people in the world today.

You Don't Want to Know the Closing Costs          It's true.  You DON'T want to know the closing costs.  You want to know exactly  what a mortgage is going to cost you.  When comparison shopping amongst different lenders, it can be very difficult to compare apples to apples.  Sometimes closing co...

I want each contestant to come up with their personal, unique, one of a kind tag-line, slogan or short mission statement for themselves. It can have to do with your business product, service or name.

“Why Would Anyone be Willing to Keep Paying Higher Rental Rates?”   She told me she was paying $1450 per month for rent, renting the same home for 4 years and a home that doesn’t fit their needs. OK, so why rent? She told me, no one in her family has ever owned a home. It never occurred to her th...

There are a lot of good real estate agents in the Winchester, VA market, and there are a few things that make working with other agents a gift. I'm not much for drama, and I don't like to see people give up on a challenge before it's overcome. Those two items seem to be work practice of a lot of ...

Do We get Intimidated with a First Look? I was getting ready to play golf this morning at a course named The Preserve. The name alone set the tone for the course as it is a nature sanctuary with a championship curse running through it.  The practice range was set up with island greens for testing...

In my business, we don't have access to market reports or data.  But, if I were a real estate agent, I would be publishing market reports every month (and yes, I used to do something similiar in a previous career).  It would be a great way for local buyers/sellers to find me and for me to build c...
