ethics: THERE IS NO ONE AROUND TO STOP YOU SO.... - 03/21/14 09:56 AM
The copy and paste phenomenon continues which is the theft of someones else work. It is going to be around for a while because it is too easy to do. WHY? In the privacy of your own world, you can approach this, enter into it, have at it and it is yours.
HOW WILL YOU KNOW?
However, when you share what you have done, the chicken wants to come home to roost. It always does. Here again it becomes interesting to the practitioner too. In the giant vast world of cyberspace, one asks themselves..."How will anyone know'? and this encourages them to move forward. Well, in today's … (4 comments)

ethics: BUYING OR SELLING AGENT? HOW I FOUND OUT - 12/27/13 01:05 PM
Lets go back to the time when I had no license, was ignorant and young which was over 35 years ago. The lure of becoming a Real Estate licensee was strong and desirable. Pictures of wealth, power and the good life appeared if only I could get licensed
CAN YOU DO IT ALL?
I knew nothing about any particular thing and I thought having a license allowed me to do anything Real Estate with it. Well it does but can YOU do it...I mean everything with it? They don't teach or tell you that as part of the licensing procedures. You are … (5 comments)

ethics: CONGRESS NEEDS TO SING SOME PATRIOTIC SONGS - 10/03/13 07:56 AM
That's the problem! They have forgotten the price paid and the lives lost so that they can hold these sessions of truth, break for lunch and live a good life. A perfect instant solution for resolution would be to put on the music, turn it up, hand out the words and on cue...Belt out the songs one after another for about 1-2 hours. Mind you, we will skip the pledge of Allegiance as that doesn't appear to be working
AMERICA IS A BEAUTIFUL DREAM
What these songs do is trigger a national pride, the privilege of being an American and at the same … (6 comments)

ethics: NO FEAR NO GUILT NO PROBLEM - 08/29/13 06:53 AM
This is the cry from the heart of men and women who remain true to themselves. They chose ethics, morals, character and the righteous suffering that goes with it because they believed that the true things of value, the real coin of this earthly realm is not found in material things but in the invisible world. Peace, calmness and clear thinking are gifts. Don't bargain them away for something less
ETHICS IS MORE THAN A WORD
I have interviewed people in jail when I did some counseling work. No one likes it there and everyone wants out. What everyone in jail … (6 comments)

ethics: WHEN YOU FIND OUT SOMEONE HAS AN AGENT - 08/26/13 06:35 AM
This subject is being tested more than it should. If a principal is working with another agent and comes across another agent who either wants to get involved or is roped in, what is the protocol? Principals and clients are not bound by agent to agent contact, but agents have to answer to other agents...YES?
HELP ME UP
I had a principal call me once to get information and she liked the way I spoke. I naturally said I am available and when she is ready, I am ready to go on point and take her to the promised land. She … (3 comments)

ethics: DOUBLE ENDING SHOW SOME CLASS - 07/18/13 06:32 AM
Look, we all suspect and many of us just plain know when an agent is trying to double end or just doing the double end dance. Whether you should or shouldn't is always a good subject to explore but that is not my point at this time. Mine is that those that choose to do so have no tact, acting ability or finesse causing more trouble than necessary and violating the ethical rules and regs too when doing it. WHY?
CONTROVERSY
Pocket listings have long been another back and forth subject as well as the agent who has in writing from … (45 comments)

ethics: REAL ESTATE TEMPTATIONS ABOUND WATCH YOUR ETHICS - 05/20/13 06:14 AM
It starts out like any other normal day. Opportunities await and some even present themselves too. Deals can be handled many ways as there are many ways to skin the cat. But how far are you prepared to go with some of those far-out, out of the box, creative and risky ventures? The lure to get involved is always the same thing...QUICK MONEY
STAY THE RIGHT WAY
Of course everyone is doing it and no one is getting caught follows soon after that. If you haven't chosen a side when this temptation is presented, you may be too weak to resist … (4 comments)

ethics: WILD WEST CODES MADE GOOD SENSE - 04/01/13 06:26 AM
In the days of the wild frontier, you can break many laws known or unknown, but these you did not or you could end up paying with your life. Every person came to know these rules, every jury, judge, and lawman too. If not paid for with your life, you are a social outcast wherever you go. Saddle up and lets visit some of these protocols
THE CODE OF THE WEST
1. A horse thief was not tolerated by anyone. Even touching another horse required permission.
 
2. No back shooting anyone. It was murder and you got hanged for it.

ethics: UNCLEAN HANDS HOW YOU GO ABOUT IT MATTERS - 03/24/13 06:53 AM
Did you make a buck or did the buck make you? I have seen people stop at nothing to make something happen. I like drive, commitment, focus, and even tenacity but not when you employ unethical tactics or behavior. You not only lose me, but you have lost your self in the process too
ARE YOUR HANDS DIRTY?
In a court of law, they call it unclean hands. You may have a point or two on whatever your complaint or lawsuit is, but if they find "unclean hands", it diminishes your position considerably and will be argued so. Dirty hands says … (2 comments)

ethics: DONT HAVE A FOOL FOR A CLIENT - 12/19/12 06:24 AM
Ladies and gentleman I am speaking to you. I am sorry to be so blunt but I believe it is time well spent to call to your attention that when BUYING or SELLING Real Estate, get an agent on board. Transacting in Real Estate is not a personal challenge to see if you can do this on your own. Instead, hire up and INSURE that the "action" goes well and stays well too
MR. and MRS FOOLISH...How do you do?
Many people don't know that lawsuits abound within 1-4 years of a transaction. They find out the hard the way and people who … (7 comments)

ethics: TEACHING BY EXAMPLE MAKES GOOD LEARNING - 12/10/12 07:40 AM
Many years ago when I was a young, lazy, just starting out, inexperienced pup in the world who knew everything but knew nothing, I was introduced to a lesson in life early on that changed me for the better. I wasn't eager to learn this lesson nor did I seek it out. You could say it sought me out because there I was and there it was and I learned from it....
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
I was working in property management and one third of my time was spent in the field doing miscellaneous things all over the city and county in … (2 comments)

ethics: DON'T CROSS THE ETHICS LINE JUST DON'T DO IT - 12/01/12 06:36 AM

ethics: REAL ESTATE LIST OF WHO I WONT WORK WITH...sorry - 11/20/12 05:58 AM
Santa has a list of naughty or nice he works off of and I thought I would copy that system since it works so well. The "nice" part doesn't need any commenting but the naughty...well that is the squeaky wheel. Now my list sort of borders on common sense and what I have come to see works and doesn't work. In Real Estate transacting, I like to mitigate risk
Alright, here we go...
1. Buyers who don't listen. Now I am not talking about everyday not listening of which human beings suffer from. NO. I am okay with that. It is when I … (55 comments)

ethics: ARGUMENT TO STRATEGICALLY DEFAULT AND WALK AWAY part 2 - 10/15/12 09:46 AM
In part 1, we discussed how the timing to walk away for us all from the current downside of the Real Estate crash is upon us all and should be addressed. Morals and ethics presented this position from being addressed a few short years ago. However, today, we are compelled to examine this
WHAT TO DO EXAMPLE
Lets look at it up close. Two people bought homes in the same neighborhood for $500,000. Today, those homes are worth $250,000. One person goes into default, foreclosure etc while the other makes the payment. Here, your gut screams out that something is wrong … (7 comments)

ethics: ARGUMENT TO STRATEGICALLY DEFAULT AND WALK AWAY part 1 - 10/15/12 09:45 AM
On or about 2006-07, defaults started creeping into the Real Estate arena with an alarming speed. People faced two very big dynamics. First, they had lost their jobs or had reduced incomes and second, their homes were no longer worth what they paid for them. At that time, real or imagined "ethics" ruled the roost in making the decision on what to do with your mortgage
DOING RIGHT WHEN THINGS ARE NOT RIGHT..examined
Now people who were well off or able to withstand the economic assault took a stand of paying the debt no matter what. The merit of that position … (0 comments)

ethics: SHOULD BROKERS PROVIDE ONGOING TRAINING - 10/10/12 08:14 AM
I sit on the professional standards hearing board and hear some very unusual tales live from the Real Estate front. In addition, my son is legal counsel to over 1200 Real Estate agents and he shares some very educational dos and don't. What stands out is two very important things. First, where the Broker is not supervising and second, where they are...
DUTY REQUIRES IT...HOW ABOUT BEYOND DUTY?
The motivation behind the action is a key factor. You see the law requires that a Broker oversee and account for any agents under the license. However, remove the law and Brokers should be motivated … (3 comments)

ethics: REAL ESTATE AGENT COMMITS ELDER ABUSE USING SEDUCTION - 09/24/12 03:15 PM
Count your blessings if you are having minor difficulties here and there as you travel and tempatation has not had its way with you. Have you heard the one about a female Real Estate agent who seduced (yes repeatedly) and took a property belonging to an elder man away from him...He just couldn't say no..... Nancy Reagan where were you?
DARK GAIN
I am going to remain deliberately vague as this is a current and pending action. It wouldn't surprise me to learn however that is may be more common than one thinks. NOT THE SEDUCTION, which is another post (lol), but … (2 comments)

ethics: ACTIVERAIN A GOOD REAL ESTATE SOURCE - 09/24/12 07:29 AM
I love to read and used to order many different magazines that I found interesting. Biking, hiking, jogging, travel, dining out, discovery, repairs, fun adventures etc. Well when wanting to get my fill of my profession I.E. Real Estate, ACTIVERAIN supplies and addresses all my needs
ALL PROFESSIONS HAVE PERIODICALS
Every major career has periodicals that they send out to people who belong to them. Pharmacists, attorneys, engineers, hobbyists, medical field and so many others all have their specific of interest material for that profession. Not every "read" is top notch either. ACTIVERAIN remains satisfying in so many respects...but not because I Say So...consider … (42 comments)

ethics: LAND OF OPPORTUNITY BOTH GOOD AND BAD - 08/06/12 12:14 PM
Wherever we go, the opportunity to do things present themselves. So do the temptations that lurk in the shadows. The chance to accomplish something that is rewarding and profitable is a very nice experience to have. However, there are people who will take advantage of others to win at all costs...
I am reminded that the Stock Market or Wall Street, and the Real Estate industry in and of itself did not fail. It was people manipulating the systems and the abuse causing things to just cave-in on themselves from all that wrong-doing that caused failure
Monopolies have long been looked down … (0 comments)

ethics: WHEN HUMAN NATURE MIMICS NATURE - 07/11/12 11:25 AM
Nature has so much to tell if it can only find more people to speak with. Here I am sitting and observing and I come across this little world going on right below me (see pic) by my feet. Various tiny spiders dig these little holes and then wait inside at the center of them for something to come by and fall right into their lap. As the prey tries to climb out, the walls are so unstable that they cannot get a foothold and then..there is only one way out..The spider's kitchen
THAT IS NOT A PEBBLE IN THE CENTER EITHER
BELOW: Notice the … (6 comments)
