Teams are formed and teams fall apart, and often real estate teams shift in terms of their personnel.  In 2006, I was starting on the upslope of what I felt was going to be a dramatic rise in my team's production.  At the time, I had two part time buyer's agents, and an admin assistant.  ...

If you've read my blog for long, you know that I'm crazy about Active Rain. I am convinced that this is one of the greatest tools that I have ever decided to utilize, and I'm constantly glad that I jumped into blogging with both feet back in August of 2007. I have been tweaking my lis...

At some point in an agent's life, they will deal with a couple who is getting divorced and must sell a home.  These are not the easiest situations to deal with, and should be handled with some care.  Emotions can run high, and many times husband and wife have different agendas. For example, J...
