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 ...

High school is finished! University is done! So why do I still need to do so much homework!

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 ...

That being said I also know the excitement and reward that comes with it ...

A Genius Idea: Buy Low, Sell High

During the infamous 'boom' years of 2006-2007 I discovered that, instead of putting my newly acquired kinesiology degree to use, I could make twice as much money doing easy temp work for oil companies.  The first company that hired me was a small office, only about 15 employees; all them dynamic and knowledgable, all of them raking in big time money. The Vice President, Dean, took ...

"It's like déjà vu all over again."

Both Spring Training for baseball and the Spring Market for Real Estate have started! It's spring time which for me, is the start of spring training for the baseball.  I was pondering baseball spring training and realized that there are similarities between baseballl spring training and the spring real estate market. With both, comes a flurry of activity as teams (people) prepare for their ...
