2012...What will your bookends look like? A friend of mine completed "photo a day" in 2011.  He ended his challenge with a picture similar to the picture that launched his challenge - a photo of his precious children asleep before midnight on New Year's Eve.  Simple.  Understated.  A quiet end to...

When it comes to foreclosures in Alabama, do me a favor...     It's unfortunate that so many people are going through the foreclosure process but to those of us in the real estate industry, it does spell one thing - J-O-B   S-E-C-U-R-I-T-Y.  Let's face it, these houses need to be sold and, in my ...

As a lender, I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing people - both clients and colleages.  I have found that I am driven by creating the relationship...not the pay check.  Many of my clients are now friends and many friends are now clients.  Several years ago, as I got to know a sweet cou...

Start shopping...for HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE! I love Christmastime.  The lights, the wreaths on homes, Starbucks Skinny Peppermint Mocha Latte.  I just hate the shopping. The last place I want to be is at mall...UGH!  All those people frantically looking for the perfect gift or next week's Dirty Sa...

Lacing up my running shoes...I'm starting over! And first let's just say that the first line is definitely the hardest.  Blank screen, endless amounts of content, more words than anyone can count.  It's a fresh start.  A new place to find your voice.  For me, it's all about starting over.  My lif...
