Location, location, location

  For anyone not familiar with personality profiles or not having an understanding of them, there are four types that seem to be universally accepted. These blend together and are only one facet of what we’re made of. But, they do provide some insight as to how we react and how we view the world around us. There are a myriad of specialists and authors who differ in their label of these ...

What Buyer's won't Tell you...

Which REALTOR® is right for you?

I overheard a number of fellow agents at a conference railing against the discount brokerages and agents. The concerns of a lack of professionalism, the creation of bad industry reputations, and what could only be described as fear of a potential loss of business to the unskilled, seemed to create a common thread throughout the conference.  And yet, I could see no real cause for this angst. ...

Getting along in the sandbox

Recently, there was an article in Bankrate, admonishing home buyers of the annoying things they do that upset home sellers. The article is fairly accurate in its list of things, but it misses the other side of the real estate equation - the sellers! Because most people generally use REALTORS® to help them negotiate impartially and navigate the market, we sometimes forget there are real people ...

Many of us can remember saying to our parents "I can hardly wait until I am done school 'cause then I'll never have to worry about homework again!" While we are in school, we think homework will all be done once school is finished. Once you are out in the "Real World", the hard facts come to slap you square in the face. Homework on the “road to success” never ends, whatever road that might be ...

Statistics Are Dangerous: Real Estate & Fantasy Basketball

I have a love/hate relationship with statistics. I’ve always believed that statistics provide necessary insight, but they never uncover the entire picture. Making a choice based purely on statistics is a never a good idea. If you don't care much about basketball, you'll probably want to skip to the end. If you love basketball as much as I do, feel free to comment.  This year, for the ...
