naggar: REMEMBERING SPECIAL OCCASIONS HOLIDAYS & ACTIVERAIN POSTS - 10/19/12 07:42 AM
Do not ask for whom the post tolls...it tolls for thee. When I read that some people have never been featured. I can recall that time until one day I was. So now, we have B.F. and A.F... ActiveRain dynamics Before feature and After...It can change your life. To acknowledge a persons contribution by calling extra attention to it is a time honored tradition

naggar: ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI CALMS AND SOOTHS - 10/16/12 04:06 PM
There are many that will disagree with the title to this post. However, they have not eaten at my Sushi place. Every morsel melts into your mouth like fresh churned butter from a cow. Then, after pleasing the tongue and palette it is gently invited to journey on to make room for the next morsel...and the next...and the next
ROUND NUMBER ONE
Below: hand rolled spider rolls which are baby soft shell crabs lightly battered, quickly fried and then wrapped in fresh sea weed with crab stuffing, vegetables and rice. Tuna, Ahi, Albacore, Red Snapper and next to that rainbow rolls which … (6 comments)

naggar: SUBLIMINAL MESSAGING HELPS GET IT GOING YES YES YES - 10/16/12 06:56 AM
Back in the 1940-50's, people went out to the movies. You got to see newsreels, cartoons and two movies. It was a full evening out. You usually went to dinner afterwards or before and of course a great way to spend time alone or with your hunny-bunny. What people didn't know is that they experimented with sending messages of drinks and snacks and it worked very well
LETS GO TO THE SNACK BAR...RIGHT NOW!
They inserted into the advertising on screen with flashes or pictures of words of food, drink and people enjoying them. You cant see them becasue they move so fast, … (6 comments)

naggar: 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)

naggar: 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)

naggar: WEBINARS ALL THAT PARTICIPATE GAIN FROM THEM - 10/15/12 06:56 AM
They have been around since the early 90's. I remember when they came out, I didn't know what it was all about and signed up. I logged in early and was given a countdown screen. I waited not knowing what to expect. Then, the intro and instructions on how to interact began and I was intrigued to say the least
WILLING AND ABLE...BUT READY?
The person giving it was visibly nervous and always conscientious about what they were saying and doing. You could see where great efforts were being made to stand correctly, not touch your face or twiddle your fingers, … (6 comments)

naggar: BUSINESS CARDS ARE LEAVE BEHINDS & PROMOTIONALS - 10/14/12 06:49 AM
Over the years, business cards remained an interesting subject and a relevant one too. You can do so much with them. You can over do as well. What do we do to make the card functional and modern and part of our business plan without trying to cram everything in it? You got two spaces available called front and back. With font reduced, that can tell quite a story..
MY PERSONAL USES
Now I have two interests going that I wanted promoted and kept simple. So on one side, I did the Real Estate data and on the other side, I promoted the … (9 comments)

naggar: I WANDERED INTO THIS ROOM FULL OF COMPUTERS - 10/13/12 07:39 AM
When I was in college a few short years ago, I wandered into a big EMPTY room full of different computers and separate stations. Each one had a program and specific purpose on it designed to help you find your self, your calling, your personality, skills bank, talents, origin, what you should do for a living or not do for that matter and your potentials...No one was around and I had time to kill so I took them all one after another
HEY..WHATS ALL THESE COMPUTERS FOR?
Now in after thought, you were not allowed in this room. It was designed to be monitored and assigned to … (5 comments)

naggar: I MAY SEE SOMETHING ABOUT U YOU DONT - 10/12/12 05:09 PM
I am speaking of FEEDBACK & INPUT and how beneficial those two things can be when applied. However, they are not always welcomed yet the people who have it want to download it. In order to do that in the personal world, permission is required. If not given or refused well that's life. In the professional world it is called performance reviews
MAKE IT COUNT...check your motives
This is such a great tool that doesn't get enough accolade. It can enhance a person and their productivity and even has the ability to be a change agent for the good. I am not talking … (6 comments)

naggar: THE TRUTH HONESTLY SELLS HONEST IT DOES - 10/12/12 11:27 AM
I had some trouble with my wireless technology all of a sudden and investigated accordingly. I just updated everything and it was working and then failed at some point. Eventually I call in my service provider to check the Internet connection speeds which are your upload and download capability and ask them to send someone out. It is no charge to do so to me
 A CHANCE TO LEARN SOMETHING...yes!
Nice fellow shows up and gets right to it. He wants to start at my modem which is state of the art. He pulls out something like a cell phone and … (2 comments)

naggar: POLITICS WHAT DISPLAY OF CHILDISH ANTICS - 10/12/12 07:26 AM
You don't hear from anyone in office whether it is state, local or federal or from school board members and congressman or senatorial people all year long and then all of a sudden when it is re-election time everyone comes out of their cubby hole and starts barking and biting touting who and what they are and what they do or did and then for the grand finale attack anyone opposing them or their office
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE DURING YOUR TERM...speaks
What irks me is how come you don't hear from any of these people or candidates throughout the year sharing or boasting of … (8 comments)

naggar: GOING and GETTING PAST THE QUITTING STAGE - 10/10/12 12:10 PM
You work hard and you do what you believe is right. Things should start to line up and then make sense. Why not? You have done this before and you have seen the results from your thinking and doing. But then, something does not go as planned. It even rejects your best efforts and you are now at a point where you want to walk away...Should you?
DEFEAT IS A WORD...SO IS TENACITY
I like to remind people that we were not put here to be defeated. Problems all come with multiple solutions if one remains calm and objective thereby inviting … (6 comments)

naggar: 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)

naggar: TRAVELING FROM MY LAPTOP AMAZING - 10/10/12 07:06 AM
It is fascinating to sit in front of your computer and travel and not even leave the room. I mean stop and think about this. It was not possible 50 years ago without satellite assistance and was limited to the government. Just the other day, someone asked me about a property 30 miles from me in an area I was familiar with. I immediately went to my lap top
YOU ARE THERE IN SECONDS
First thing is you put in an address. You can even start by intersections or zip codes too. Then, all sorts of data pops up on the … (7 comments)

naggar: UNCLE SPAMMY AND AUNT WHAMMY - 10/08/12 01:28 PM
These are not the type of relatives you want coming over. In fact, they invite themselves. I keep getting bounce back emails of which I have never sent saying that they could not be delivered and to "click" here so that we can help you. What they really mean is help themselves to you either by infecting your computer or hi-jacking your programs
YOUR GOING INTO A HOLDING CELL
I keep instructing my computer to banish these emails into my "blocking" Jail for ever more. However, new ones keep coming. The old ones however go right to my jail. I hold … (4 comments)

naggar: YOUR BODY IS LICENSED BUT YOUR HEART IS MISSING - 10/08/12 12:37 PM
Not everyone who is licensed in Real Estate loves what they do. I have met people who had free time and some inclination and a few dollars to spare and they thought it would a fun thing to do. So they did it and now they are a licensed Real Estate agent. But not quite. The final stage involves getting a broker to let them hang their license at
GREEN AT WORK?
I have met some really "green" I mean Amazon green Forrest agents out there probing around. Everyone means well starting out, but some do more harm than good. That harm can be … (3 comments)

naggar: CASUAL "WHAT A PROPERTY IS WORTH" QUICK TALK - 10/08/12 06:43 AM
As Real Estate agents, we all know how to analyze and bring about a value conclusion using comps or comparables to our subject property. It is not hard to do. When a comp is located, we then add or subtract value depending on the properties because no two properties are alike...similar but not identical
COST TO CONSTRUCT EASY TO USE TOO
I have also used the cost to construct formula to arrive at a complimentary value as well. You see I know what it costs to construct single family dwelling per foot and production units for my area. Each area has its … (8 comments)

naggar: GETTING IN THE ACTIVERAIN CALIFORNIA TOP 20...WHEW - 10/07/12 07:50 AM
I did it to myself. I had to go and post, comment and blog about rankings, positions, the benefits of all of that which by the way is very true but here is what happened because of it. I was casually driving my posts and comments like you would a car in the country just touring around when I mentioned wanting to get ahead in the point and ranking arena
WELL OTHERS TOOK NOTICE
Now I have been trying to over take a couple of people who are pretty heavy RAINMAKERS. The noise of an oncoming RAINMAKER makes another RAINMAKER...get up and … (26 comments)

naggar: SUSHI FOR A REWARD IS SATISFYING...ALL YOU CAN EAT IS HEAVEN - 10/06/12 06:06 PM
My Publisher/editor treated me to some sushi today. This is one of the finest foods known to man. The place we go to is the epitome of all sushi being fresh, tasty, and my dear RAINMAKERS...It is an all you can eat place and priced to invite not scare away. Ahhh, the rewards of hard work take many forms...Sushi has a place of honor

My Publisher Ms Kathleen Marie Brown  wanted to stage the table and I said...NO..Lets shoot it as in real life...So you see many things spread out and believe me when I tell you THERE IS MUCH … (6 comments)

naggar: DOES THE $84 MILLION DOLLARS COME WITH A BUSINESS PLAN? - 10/06/12 06:51 AM
I call a major Retail shopping center which just sold for $84 million dollars and has large anchor tenants plus movie theater to get data on their space and leasing requirements. No live people available and the recorder comes on and you push this or that to address your needs. LISTEN CAREFULLY you are told as the instructions are explained. If you mess up, the STAR key gives you another chance.
SORRY...PLAY AGAIN...push the star key now
Okay, I figure it out and push the one I think it is. EHHHHH. Wrong choice. But I have the star key to fall back … (2 comments)
