Recently, I received a call from someone I had worked with in the past.  She was at a crossroad in her life and had just gone through some pretty trying times.  Although I’m not entirely sure why she called, I got a sense that she was ready to move on.  She had made a huge job change and a move t...
So, we recently needed to find someone who could build a deck for us.  I got four recommendations through Facebook and contacted each one.  Out of the four, only one responded the first day; another one responded the second day; and another one on the third day.  I have yet to hear from the fourt...
The practice of real estate sometimes likens itself to a feast or famine situation.  Frank Sinatra sang it best in his hit, “That’s Life,” where he sang, “You're riding high in April, shot down in May; but I know I'm gonna change that tune when I'm back on top, back on top in June.”   The feast o...
For TEAM Hughes Real Estate School, April was a month of rollercoaster emotions.  We were facing challenges at every turn.  It was our first month in a new Pensacola campus, and anything and everything that could go wrong literally did!  We started out with using a secondary classroom that could ...
I am a morning person and have been a morning person my entire life.  My body naturally wakes up about 5-5:30 each morning, and only through practically strapping me to the bed would I ever be able to stay in it until 7:00!  As the owners of TEAM Hughes Real Estate School, Bob and I recognize tha...

Spring, Easter and warmer weather make folks feel good.  For most, it’s a time of renewal.  Whether you are a person of faith or not, leaving winter behind normally makes us feel more alive, ready to pursue the things we’ve put off. As a woman of faith, it’s a time of renewal in my personal life....
My mind keeps taking me back to a 70’s song by the Bachman-Turner Overdrive called, “Taking Care of Business.”  You owe it to yourself to listen to it on You Tube!  The hyperlink will take you to a rendition with the lyrics on the screen, and I can’t get enough of it!  Having been a product of th...
In the practice of real estate, competition runs high.  The number of licensees has risen sharply since recovering from the debacle created a few years back.  Lower interest rates have prompted many people to jump into the arena, and thankfully, many REALTORS® and real estate agents are making a ...
Technology has made the world smaller, and it’s easier to reach out to people.  Sometimes, I feel as though I am blogging my way through life, however.  The practice of real estate has always been a people business, and without meeting people, it’s difficult to become successful.  Owning a real e...
