Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy.

It is often tough to deal with dilemma or hardship without embracing angst. Sometimes after enough time and with enough disappointment we think about becoming something that we are not, and of doing things we have never done. One of those things is deciding that something significant must be done...
I love a clean house, clean car, clean anything really. Before my move, I had a wonderful dealership where my car was serviced, and routinely washed and vacuumed every time I was in for anything and even occasionally when I just needed a wash. When I moved, I wasn't so lucky. I could only find th...
I love magic and illusion is wonderful. I was watching America's Got Talent and enjoying the magic done by Mat Franco, who gets me every-time. frequently, the judges ask, " how do you do that?"

There isn't often anything to be done and accepting that makes the resolution easier, if not more...

In real estate as in life things happen that we don't plan for or count on. Often concerns arise at the most inopportune time and how we deal with these dilemmas in large part defines whether or not we get through them. I always start with breath.

This happens. People enumerate what they like, what they want and what they must have, and then they start looking at homes. You know when you see it, and when it feels right even though it bears no resemblance to what you were looking for. I have seen this again and again, and I have even been g...
