professionals: DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT? - 03/27/14 07:47 AM
I don't know why people always pick REAL ESTATE to practice their conversation, opinions and beliefs on. Everyone I meet is a Real Estate expert so they think because they read or experienced some small aspect of it and then add their TWO CENTS to it they know it all. Their CENTS usually makes no SENSE
I AM NOT SURPRISED
I have often run into people who when questioned become adamant on the subject matter. That's an interesting dynamic because in my over 35 years in this ever evolving learning business, I am not adamant about anything. That's because so much can and will happen.
CHOOSE YOUR PRACTICE
I don't even know everything … (6 comments)

professionals: UNLICENSED OPINIONATED ZILLOW MEANS WELL - 03/27/14 07:21 AM
Zillow is a good place to visit to get the awareness of Real Estate going. Its not accurate, licensed or could it possibly know about your specific piece of Real Estate. Remember, no two homes, areas or parcels of land and how they capture the elements are the same
HELLO MR. ZILLOW?
Is he in? Can I leave a message please? If I was to sell or buy Real Estate, I would want someone who does that up close and personal. We would need to meet up, converse and capture the uniqueness of the property in question. Then, I would want to activate FIDUCIARY … (12 comments)

professionals: THE THOUGHT OF GOING IT ALONE - 03/14/14 07:12 AM
What one person can do another can do. This we know. But somethings require common sense and not effort. A person should know their limitations and operate accordingly. When it comes to purchasing, selling or investing in Real Estate, the learning curve respects no one
TAKE THIS FOR INSTANCE
Medical school for doctors does the same thing too. For a period of about seven years, a medical student is subjected to the business and its dynamics while under the watchful eye of the more seasoned and experienced. It is called interning. The human body and its ailments is no joke
AND THIS TOO

professionals: ALL THE BANKS HAD/HAVE TO DO WAS/IS HIRE REAL ESTATE AGENTS - 01/26/14 11:57 AM
It is as simple as the title says. Imagine you call a bank and lo and behold it is a licensed experienced Real Estate agent who is going to handle your loan modification, your foreclosure, your refinance, your short sale or your move-out...
REAL ESTATE SPEAK
No time is wasted on small talk, learning curves, or hashing out distractions but instead full professional customer servicing on subject matter when you need it the most. This last Real Estate crash would have had an entirely different ending if what I am saying took place
MOTIVATION AND LOVE OF CAREER
The agents would work on … (2 comments)

professionals: GET IN AND GET OUT TIME IS MONEY TOO - 01/22/14 07:25 AM
I have seen deals with so many counter to the counter plus addendum's and after a while, one wonders if we are all on the same page? Escrow officers have some great stories to tell about people just going back and forth over last minute issues
NICKEL & DIME
My business plan  as well as my clientele operate on one premise: Getting in or out of a transaction effectively and efficiently. You make a long story short. You cut to the chase. Someone has to do it or the nickel and dime syndrome kicks in
NO SURPRISES
A seller should know where … (38 comments)

professionals: DIFFERENT SAVVY TALK AMONG THE VARIOUS TRADES - 12/26/13 12:00 PM
I speak Real Estate fluently. I also speak love and life lingo as well. I have read posts where inspectors speak inspection talk, Title reps title talk and escrows speak escrow effectively. When visiting with the different aspects and careers, you are exposed to their trade language
SAVVY SPEAK
I am not talking their slang or vernacular terms. NO. I am referring to their SAVVY and when they speak about their subject matter, they are talking their profession. They are making professional points and statements. It is their world that we navigate through when we visit with them
RESTAURANT LINGO
If you go to restaurant convention, they talk the language … (40 comments)

professionals: SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISES WHEN PROFESSIONAL AGENTS ARE INVOLVED - 11/21/13 06:58 AM
The whole idea of having a professional Real Estate agent on board is to insure that the A B C's of the deal are spelled out and that the buying or the selling process when triggered is put into high gear and then accomplished. Not being available to show, not disclosing relevant issues, poor marketing, and lack of curb appeal say quite a bit about who is in charge
CAN I REACH THE PERSON IN CHARGE?
Then there are the communications. Sometimes I wonder about people who are in this business and how they perceive it? Players want to speak to the person in charge...NOW. … (29 comments)

professionals: NO COMMISSIONS TO PAY? - 11/15/13 07:48 AM
These four words can bring you untold misery. Investors love to point out to many homeowners that they buy direct and then they emphasize NO COMMISSIONS. This means you save money but in reality you may be entering into a transaction that can cost you-money or losses. Those who try to save money to make money will find that the sword being used cuts both ways
BUYERS EMOTIONS
I recently talked to a buyer who was vulnerable, excited, willing and naive and had a lot of questions and one thing stood out in my mind. You need an agent to make sure that your interests go … (4 comments)

professionals: REAL ESTATE IS NOT FOR DREAMING ABOUT - 11/04/13 08:26 AM
Many people choose this profession to dream about getting into and then bring their version of that dream to bear which turns out to be a nightmare. I want to be or practice Real Estate is right up there with I want to be a movie star or be very rich. Oh, all I need to do is this or that and then and then...AND THEN what? 
THIS BUSINESS REQUIRES LOVE
I love this profession for what it allows me to do and what I get from the doing of it. My skills banks comes alive helping put together a major transaction that … (11 comments)

professionals: REAL ESTATE OH I CAN DO THAT - 11/03/13 09:26 AM
Amazing how many LAY people at large boast, attempt to do or comment on Real Estate. Yes I am talking about people who say...You dont have to pay thousands of dollars in the form of a commission to buy or sell a home. I know how you can save money...Listen up
 GO TO IT
Look, I have been in Real Estate for over 35 years. It is a vast sea of subjects, categories, dynamics and pitfalls and rewards that to this day I still raise an eye brow on some things I come across and I am a seasoned veteran mind … (5 comments)

professionals: CAN IT CLOSE WILL IT CLOSE and WHEN - 10/22/13 08:05 AM
When I meet up with a potential client about a listing, you can assume that we talked quite a bit prior and after that I have done my homework. Then the meeting and the walk thru. My mind is already asking all the relevant questions as my eyes take it all in and my ears go to work. Questions and answers all come rather rapidly and the title of my post is born
THIS IS MY TAG-LINE

professionals: IN THE LAND OF MANY PROFESSIONALS WHO RULES? - 10/05/13 08:31 AM
In the land of the blind, we know the one eye man rules. Two eyed man gets elected president. How about in the land of Real Estate where in your neck of the woods there are multiple professionals conducting business? I ask you first here and now, why would I choose you to do business with? I will say this. It is wise to have answer on this question far in advance of it being asked
RESOLUTION OF FACT
The first thing you will notice when people begin to answer this is they tend to argue rather than state. In a … (27 comments)

professionals: ABILITY MAKES YOU ELIGIBLE FOR RESPONSIBLITY - 10/02/13 08:03 AM
Often those that have the vision or can see a way or solution are also the ones that have to go on point and make it happen. That clarity or focus is no accident but really a call to action by the one who is observing. It's an invitation to carpe diem, to achieve and trigger the skills bank of an individual to wake-up, activate to maximum and.... go to work...
CONSULT AND THEN HIRE
I find that this dynamic surfaces also when I am giving free consultations on various subject matters as well. Third party objective hearing and seeing produces results more often than not. If you … (4 comments)

professionals: ACTIVERAIN WAS TOO MUCH FOR THEM - 08/27/13 07:24 AM
I had occasion over the years to search out ACTIVERAIN search engine when wanting to know a little something about certain other agents. Of course just because they are not on ACTIVERAIN doesn't mean they are not practicing. NO. It just means they haven't sharpened their game and upped their presence in the Real Estate world. However, I did observe some unfinished business a few times
WELL WELL WELL
One day, a little bird told me about a rogue agent who was committing deliberate unethical acts and violating Real Estate law too and just for fun I punched in that name … (15 comments)

professionals: REAL ESTATE BUSINESS BUILDING POST - 07/28/13 07:02 AM
I recently posed a question to professionals and layman alike across the United States and Canada...ON ACTIVERAIN and asked a question that attracted quality and informative responses all valuable and privileged. DO FEMALE AGENTS HAVE AN EDGE OVER MALE AGENTS generated a tremendous response BUT even more importantly, generated very important data that when analyzed can bring value to a business plan
HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT WORKS?
When a business person does all they can do, then they monitor and maintenance their position staying current and involved until they get the responses they are looking for. It is not uncommon … (8 comments)

professionals: WHY ACTIVERAIN IS NO GOOD FOR REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS - 05/19/13 10:26 AM
The results are in and bares repeating. They are conclusive and have stood up to rigorous testing by tens of thousands of people over a period of extended time and double checked by hundreds of thousands randomly across the United States and Canada. This tests are self-evident and speak for themselves. No further testing is required and this matter is closed
NO REASON CAN BE FOUND
 I mean trying to find a flaw, a problem, a downside, a negativity or complaint with this well run and most effective Real Estate centered plus informative site is challenging and daunting to say the least so say … (9 comments)

professionals: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU FOR A REAL ESTATE AGENT: you have 3-5 seconds - 05/01/13 11:41 AM
What is it about you that stands out? Are you ordinary or EXTRA-ordinary. Do you have a specialty and have perfected it? Will the public at large benefit from your involvement? Will you? Will your clients...my fellow agents...? Just being licensed doesn't cut it anymore. Oh, you may be in the game, but if you want to play a GOOD game, tell me who you are and what you do in 3-5 seconds...That's right. It may all boil down to that....a few seconds.

professionals: GOOD AGENTS NEVER SAY DIE - 04/25/13 10:06 AM
With all this past and current foreclosure nonsense, litigation, short selling, loan moodifications, and all the rest of it.....one wonders what will become of the Real Estate industry future. This is a fair question and cannot be answered in detail mainly because Real Estate is so vast and also because we are often in the eye of the hurricane unable to see what lies ahead
I will tell you share with you a few things....
1. If we had to pay for all this Real Estate  publicity,, we are talking multi-Billions in dollars spent. I dare say that is conservative. That … (11 comments)

professionals: PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENT DESCRIBED - 04/06/13 07:24 AM
In every profession, there are people who stand out and they are called professionals. Professional defined: one who has special education, who possesses distinctive qualities with confidence, one who practices their highest being....all these convey an extraordinary person in their field. A person who becomes a professional has developed themselves into a marketable value
PRO...for short
A professional or a real pro as we call them earned the meaning of the above words. They live them. When you see a anyone practicing traits as described, you are moved to recognize a professional at work whatever field of endeavor they are in.

professionals: MY FIRST LOAN FOR THE YEAR WHEW ON DISCLOSURES - 03/05/13 07:02 AM
I have a TRIPLEX listing with a sale and I am helping the buyer get a loan but it didn't start out that way. I only wanted an appraisal and from there it reached the point where all these forms had to be filled out and initialed. This is my first loan experience for the year and I must say that 75 pages worth of disclosures is a testament to where we are in Real Estate today
DISCLOSURES...
Below is the list of disclosures required and when printed out come to 75 pages worth of documents that have to be signed … (4 comments)
