As a retired agent, broker/owner, and property manager my blog is a menagerie of wisdom and ramblings from my career and life in general.



I love summer in the Wenatchee Valley because of all the fresh soft fruits.  We can, literally, go pick fruit off the tree when it is ripe and it tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the stores.We can pretty much get anything we want any time of the year (in the store) but there is ...
Love this post by Pat Starnes .    I’ve learned many things throughout my real estate career. It’s hard to name just one thing that’s had the largest impact, so I’ve put together a list of 10 things I’ve learned while selling real estate that you may find interesting. I’ve learned:   1.

Awww... the priceless surprises that inevitably come with any adventure.  This particular picture was taken on a day trip from Las Vegas toward Death Valley.  It was very near the Nevada / California border.   We were in search of desert wildflowers.    We did find lots of wild flowers in the des...
Here is installment #3 on the Monday Listings reblogs.  How can you not want to read a post about "lead magnets"?  Thanks for the post Debbie Gartner.  As part of Bob Stewart's Crowd Sourcing, I'm republishing this article with some additional commentary:   This had been on my "to do" list for ov...
 "Do not mistake activity for progress. You can keep busy in a rocking chair but you won't get anywhere."                                    -Earl NightingaleI often hear new and struggling agents tell me how busy they are and, yet, they are frustrated because they aren't actually finding clients...
