This is a follow up to my last post... Will buying now make you a millionaire? Have we seen "the bottom"? I don't pretend to know exactly what will happen in the next 5 years. There was a rally on the dollar and downward pressure on gold as recently as Obama's last talk on his new "stimulus" deal...

I would encourage all Realtors to not be waiting for the market to "come back around". Cuz it's not gonna. The boom we just experienced was the *problem*...this recession is the cure. We need this. We've been coasting on artificially low rates, easy money and bad lending practices. That's not nor...

Why is success so scary? This question has been coming up a lot lately for me. Why do we tend to quit right before we win? Why do we think small? Mere complacency can be a factor. Sometimes it’s the reason altogether. But there are other self-sabotaging elements that can cause this. A colleague o...

Many of the people in my network are Realtors, as am I. So this blog is naturally going to be at least 50% real estate-related. That said, I think what’s happening in real estate to be a good benchmark and applicable to many other industries. We’re going through a time of grandiose, wide-sweeping...

For all my bitching, you may think I hate being here or find there to be no opportunity…all gloom and doom. That couldn’t be further than the truth. America is replete with opportunity! Our wealth is gone, and we’re moving into unfamiliar territory, territory which few of us are prepared to navig...

I just want to be clear. This is not a real estate blog. I write about real estate here for the simple reason that I’m in the business. Many of my friends and acquaintances are in real estate. This leads me to mention it often. One of the reasons I love the real estate business is because it touc...

I just got back from Columbus, OH for a brainstorming session with some top real estate brokers. Thanks for having me along Cathy! I had a great time, met some awesome people and learned a lot. Real Pro Systems hosted the event; it is a company that provides web sites and related services to real...

I get a lot of questions from people considering the real estate business, and it’s occurred to me lately that this is exactly the kind of reason I want to have my own site. I’m going to write a post on it and refer people here. Surely I’ll need to update my thoughts on this from time to time, bu...

This article just came across Speaking of Real Estate, which is a blog I read frequently. I like how the  author takes the time to mention that each market is different. Too many blanket comments get made about real estate these days. In some markets, as I mentioned before, I really think we’re g...

All over the US, we’re seeing a massive number of short sales…people selling their homes short of what they owe. What are your perceptions of this? How does it affect your business? Obviously it affects me directly, because I sell real estate. Talking with home owners has taken on a completely di...
