     One of the questions I get asked from time to time are the fees that I charge for evaluating properties for resale. Yesterday, I was asked what what I charge to inspect a 6,000 square foot bank owned property located in a town just south of Nashville, TN. Based on the age and the footprint I...

      One of the things that makes a business run and run well is good employees. I know that I have bragged on Annelle before and she deserves every bit of praise. A few agents had asked us if we would be willing to participate in a broker open and Annelle was quick to say, “Yes.” before she eve...

I am constantly looking for new innovative ways to get the word out by seeing what my competitors are not doing.      While at a trade seminar a few weeks back, I saw a vendor wh...

     Today will somewhat of a nothing post. Like yesterday, today will be fast and furious as I am meeting with 20 other inspection companies from across the nation in our first quarter master-mind meeting. Like the speed round in a game show, time flew by as I learned so much as to what others a...

     While most of the world is sleeping, I am at my computer. No, it is not a bad case of insomnia it is just that I have much to do and so little time in which to get it done.
