I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, 
A year from now. 
 
 

 

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson. The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and Failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth. 
The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.

It Doesn't Happen Often
 
...but it does happen. Most of the time I am writing about my new listings, my homes that are under contract aka TOO LATE or the happy sellers when the home is sold and settled.
This time I am releasing a listing that did not sell.

In retracing my actions..I have done more blogs, than I can count.  I have talked about it on the radio more times than I can count.   I have had numerous price reductions. I have had a second set of professional photos taken, I have … (15 comments)

Make Sure That Contractors Are Licensed
 
Please read if you are a Realtor® in

 Love Technology When It Works
Trial And Error Works
 
 
 
Yesterday's blog was  Technology Saved The Day.
It was pretty cool being able to use my iPad to open a lock box.
Today I wanted to place one of my own lock boxes on a listing.
The SentriSmart app did not work. So I figured it might need a new battery.  I did just that..changed the batteries
 

 
Then I tried again following the directions...the key pad lit up and I used the code, retrieved from my iPad, into the device. It did not work.
What could I … (20 comments)

Technology Saves The Day!
 
 
SentriSmart App
 
 
When I realize my SentriCard is missing, I call support system and they told me about SentriSmart.
Late picking up my buyers, I download the app but did not have time to test it.
Luckily my buyer brought her college daughter so I  handed her my iPad and said figure this out.
 
To kill a little time at the first home, we sent Mom to check out the lawn to see if it would accommodate a pool.
 
Within minutes the lockbox was opened with the iPad.
Yeah!
Success!

And yesterday was no different. Mike was there for me at the radio station with his clever wit asking questions.
