 Monday Moments The Aurora A Gift of Light
Dear Friends -
As usual, I like to start my week by putting my cares in perspective!  Sunday evening and so many things are clamoring for my attention - all the things I wonder if I will be able to "control" this week - then I see this phenomenon - The AURORA - and re-center myself as to my next best step. One thing is for sure - no one in Atlanta can experience this beauty LIVE - too far south ...  Guess I will have to travel WAY North when the next … (3 comments)

You too can be in love with my sweetheart CRM program ixactCONTACT!In 2011, I dreamed up the 2012 Back2Basics Challenge and this year, lots of wonderful AR members participated. Without that Challenge, and the necessity to communicate with so many people at one time, I’d probably still be undecided about which CRM program to use. I chose ixactCONTACT and accepted their offer of five weeks free usage  to test it out. Now you may receive an additional three weeks - making it two months for free - if you … (5 comments)

Responding to a Fellow 'Rainer who wrote to me about the 2012 Back2Basics Challenge - 
Thanks for your kind words about the work load for running the 2012 Back2Basics Challenge.  Going it "alone" was my choice as I wanted to learn how to manage all the aspects of a good Challenge.   Another goal of mine was wanting to be sure that the Challenge tasks offered actual work benefits for participants. Happy to say - I succeeded in that respect.  Many folks made comments similar to yours: "A good lesson, valuable learning, and … (16 comments)

atlanta short sales: New Home Buyer's Tip - ReKey For Safety - 01/09/12 01:31 AM
SOOOOOOOOO TRUE!! 
"... remember how many people have had access to your house keys before your Escrow closed."
Great advice posted here by Mike Martin, who has twelve years of real estate experience, works with Tri-County Residential Group in the Fontana, CA area and specializes in SHORT SALES. Mike's reminder about new keys is an essential part of counseling our Buyer Clients about a move.
When purchasing a FannieMae property, the contract includes a fee charged to the Buyer for re-keying. Obviously, FNMA, a large entity, does not want any liability due to dispersed keys.  We as agents should always remember Mike's excellent … (6 comments)
