It's Saturday and the rainy clouds are looming overhead. So, what do the young ones do to keep busy?They build houses. Houses with two rooms, one for each of them, and then they start loading in their precious things...Pillows, blankets, favorite books, and toys. This morning is no exception.My ...
It was one of those days. You know.... the kind where everything you can imagine goes wrong before you even get out the door to meet your clients. It wouldn't have been so bad, but I was still shaking my head in wonderment when I got to the first showing. My poor buyers were waiting in the drive,...
There are a few things about real estate that can drive me crazy. But, in reality, I could probably have solved my own issues if I'd just been a pizza delivery driver first! It's like tonight.... I'm out showing houses to clients troubling over the directions from the MLS and how they are written...

Yesterday there was an article put out by MSNBC stating that lenders may choose to deny couples money to purchase a home if they are expecting child. Is it just good planning for their financial portfolio to be so selective? Or, is it bigger than that... is it discrimination? In reality, I am sur...
Do you remember that feeling when you were a wee little thing (but growing) and your pants just didn't fit anymore? You pulled up your pants and the ankle ended at your knee? And, the button didn't button so you had to ask for help and your mama told you to suck in just to get it to stick?It's l...
  A bad day at the office with layoffs and paycuts...followed by cranky kids who don't understand the stresses of adult issues...coupled by your inability to figure out where that next mortgage payment is coming from...let alone groceries to feed your family? The reality is...that this is a very ...
