  Good morning mom. It was five years ago this evening that you were called by God to heaven. Your grandson Richard and I miss you very much. You are the kindest and wisest person I have ever known and I dearly miss the talks we shared just a few short years ago. I have the last thoughts you wrot...
Last Monday at this time I was recovering from early morning eye surgery. The result seems a lot like a miracle. Before the surgery, my left eye vision was a perfect 20-20, while my right eye vision was nothing but a blur. It effected some very important aspects of my life, not the least of which...
Here is a lesson I was taught years ago and is so simple it is easy to forget. The lesson is this, keep reminding people you are in Real Estate, even your friends, because they always forget. Talked with a long time friend (20 years) yesterday about a non RE related issue. We talked for a while h...
  If You Are Interested: Each year the first Monday of September is a national holiday called "Labor Day".

But, why do so many things have to stop working, work incorrectly or  hurt. Some of its my fault, yes for sure. Leg filled with titanium rods an...
  As almost every Realtor, I have done many transactions in which the loan was guaranteed by the FHA. Most of the transactions went smooth, sometimes a touch slower that I would have like, but in every case the transaction was completed. All was well until the calendar flipped onto 2014.   Brief...
This will be a simple and straight from the heart blog. Two things to write about. I recently posted about my initial efforts at farming. I asked for suggestions and ideas. The response was overwhelming. 57 responses with ideas, suggestions and a lot of simple encouragement. The ideas are so good...
  Like many RE agents my career and most years seem like a roller coaster ride. After receiving my license in the spring of 2006 I was in a serious accident. By the time I was ready to resume work it was the summer of 2007 and the market was in free fall. My business did OK after that but was lar...
