     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. My good friend, Russell Lewis, passed away this morning from esophageal cancer. Thanks to his wife, Margaret, I was able to see him Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours. He apologized so many times for being sick, which struck me as poignan...

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...

“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...

 OK, this is late once again.  You know how it is with real estate and planning for a vacation.  So here are the favorites for this week: Marie Graham:  Buyers Can't Buy It if They Can't Find It!  This might seem really obvious, but I'm amazed at how hard it can be to find some listings. Marte Cl...

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...

This morning's mix of email contained a link to an article on Trulia that I just "had" to read. It promised "5 Surprising Buyer Turnoffs." Since I provide weekly blog posts to a few agents with my blog post service, I'm always on the lookout for new buyer and seller tips that they can share with ...

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...

We all have heard "NOTHING in life is easy" or maybe the variation of "who said life is easy", right? Well I think about this and especially in this industry we have our fair share of trials and tribulations. That got me thinking if it were easy would we appreciate it? If it were easy wouldn't ev...

From the home page of ActiveRain, there is a link that you can click "Membership Roster" that is a neat tangent to explore when you are surfing the site. As you click on each of the years of ActiveRain's existence, you realize it looks a lot like a school yearbook. Which class are you in? Are you...

Most real estate agents I know are very cautions about giving out any information about their clients, past or present. Of course, there is the occassional social media, or blog post blunder, but that doesn't happen too often. As a group, we tend to be especially cautious when it comes to giving ...

Why are we so attracted to Sunrises and Sunsets? I was reading a post by Kathy Streib this morning and I realized that I'm a sucker for any post that includes pictures of sunrises or sunsets. I started wondering what the heck is it that so attracts me to the photos and maybe even more so to the a...
