Buying takes skill. It's a lot like extreme couponing. You get your ducks in a row and wait for that perfect sale so everything falls into place. But what if you don't have the time? It all depends on what you want, where you want it and how much you are willing to pay for it. Here are so...

  The Dreaded Open House I love Open Houses! I know that makes me brain dead, because so many in our industry disagree with me. But, you know what? I'm sitting in one as I write this blog post, and I'm having to get up and answer the door; show the home; then sit back down; resume my blog...

 Seismic Shift     Large earthquakes occur when tectonic plates, normally pretty stable, suddenly “shift.” Depending on their location, the damage can be immense. Gary Keller, in his great book “Shift,” several years before our current real estate turmoil, wrote that markets tend to “shift,” and ...

      For $ale By Owner               Myth:  Most  REALTORS®  Call FSBOs, And Ask For Their Business.   Au contrair… Most REALTORS®  (falsely) assume that all of their competitors are calling the FSBOs, but, in fact, few of us do that. Don’t get me wrong: the best of us do it as part of our busin...

REALTORS® Have Friends, Too!       Image courtesy of Lumaxart   My friends deserve the best. They deserve me. I know many real estate professionals who refuse to do real estate transactions with their friends (or family). I've heard it said, "Jack and Jill, your friendship means more to ...

Please Contact A CDPE A few days ago, I received a call from a person, asking to speak with me about listng their home. During the phone interview, I learned that the owner was five months in arrears. Yikes! Then, I asked if the owner had received a Notice of Default. The owner had received lots...

Sorta Like My Smart Phone My smart phone is great! When I boot it up, it makes this cool sound, sort of like "DRRROIDDDDD," but with a Japanese accent, much like Godzilla. There's a real computer inside, that, like its larger cousins, lets me down every now and again, but, hey... N...

(The Above Image Is NOT Me!) If you are in real estate: GET A LAPTOP. Desktops are often more powerful, but they are anchored on your trusty desk: not very portable. And, what if you have two desks... one at your home, and one at your office? Atop them are two terrific computers, probably. This ...

All my life, I've known about momentum. Usually, momentum is most obvious in sports, where the term, "Big Mo," on your side, means that momentum is building. I normally have "Big Mo" on my side. Blogging is kinda fun, and I usually post (somewhere) at least once a day. But...

I confess to taking the easy way out, on my last blog post. I posted on Mother's Day, about Mothers. I could have written just about anything, and lots of folks would have said, "Ohhhh... isn't that touching?" Well, since then, I've had an operation (that I survived), my pup...

Since everyone has a mother, does that devalue the proposition of "motherhood?" Not at all. I love Mothers. I have one. My wife is a Mother. my daughter is a Mother. My sisters are Mothers. Most REALTORS® in my office are Mothers. Most loan officers I deal with are Mothers. Most title a...

After serving 250 years in The US ARMY, I am quite familiar with the ordeal of the PCS. Often irregularly scheduled, too frequent, and in undesired cities, even on unwanted continents, our military heroes and their families, besides keeping our nation safe, put up with lots of ordeals that are us...

Once Upon A Time... Around the turn of the 20th Century, the Territory of Arizona was anxious to join the United States. The USA then consisted of 46 states, but, in order to join the union, certain prices had to be paid. First, the Territory was a lawless mess. Partially because the Texas Ranger...

Had surgery last week. It was supposed to be out-patient, but turned out to be in-patient, with one night stay in hospital. Then, a couple of days in bed, before I figured out who I was supposed to be. During that time, I lost a referral from an ActiveRain member, because the client could not wai...

  1958 Chevrolet Impala Convertible... Sticker Price: $2,841.00 (in 1958) About 1958, the same year this gorgeous Chevrolet was built, my parents bought a new home in Anaheim, California.

  Referrals are a two-edged sword. On the one hand, one owes a part of their commission to the referral source. Some REALTOR®s feel that their time is diluted, because they work just as hard on the rferral as on any other business, but, then are paid less money. On the other hand, the referral MA...

Last month, I attended the Keller Williams "Family Reunion," in Anaheim, California. Coincidentally my hotel was about two blocks from where I grew up, in the late 1950's. Of course, I decided to walk over and take a look at my former home. Wow! Even though there was no one left in...

Get Nekkid! I'm not especially comfortable, standing in front of TSA's full body scan, 'back-scatter' X-ray scanners. I'm less comfortable with a physical search, and always recall the frustrated gentleman's comment to a TSA screener, "Don't touch my junk!" (...

Today, I was told that I am a dope, while someone else complimented me on my business choice. So, like Taylor Swift, you'd better not "Date" me, because I'll write a song about you! Of course, I would never use names, but let me describe the situation: Today, I had a "for s...
