fort wayne realtor: Hey Jared! I'm thinking about getting my real estate license! Can you give me some pros and cons? Boy can I... - 04/10/13 04:09 PM
I woke up this morning and saw a Facebook message from my friend Debb.  She told me that she was considering getting her real estate license, and she asked me to share the pros and cons of being a Realtor®.
I asked her to go ahead and tell me what she thinks are the pros and cons.  Her response:
Pros - I would be helping people find their first home and their dream home.  The money is probably pretty good.

fort wayne realtor: Fun in the snow in Fort Wayne!!! - 12/19/09 04:03 PM
We only got about 2-3 inches of snow here in Fort Wayne, but that was enough to have a little fun!  What is more fun than playing football in the snow?  Maybe building a snowman?  In our case it was more like an Insect Snowman!

Not quite sure what possessed my son and I to do that, but it was fun!

Mike and our "creation".  Of course we had to destroy it, but the pictures are WAY TOO GRAPHIC for a family site like Active Rain.  Lets just say that the insect snowman is NO MORE.

fort wayne realtor: My first house warming party with a client. LOVE IT!! - 11/22/09 05:45 PM
I met Ashley at an open house earlier this year.  She wasn't quite ready to buy a home, but she told me she would call me when she was ready.  A few months later she called me and said LET'S GO!  We started the search, looked at 16 houses and then found THE ONE!!  It's a beautiful home that was completely remodeled and it was exactly what her and her family were looking for.
We made the offer, negotiated back and forth, and then BAM!!!!  Accepted offer!  Inspection, CHECK.  Title search, CHECK.  Closing, UM... woops, slight delay.  The listing agent (who … (52 comments)

I just read a blog where somebody was venting about what they love and hate about selling real estate.   I don't like to focus on the negative so I decided to write a blog about the things I LOVE about being a Realtor here in Fort Wayne:
I LOVE it when a client finds their DREAM HOME!
I LOVE it when I get that excitement of a new lead.
