I just did a blog about brown grass and then I started looking at other photos.  Would you list a home and advertise it like this with these photos?  These homes are over 600K!  The commission for an agent on this home would be over 18K to market these homes.  Can these agents really be proud of ...

Sometimes I feel like I did when I was single if I don't have some business going on on the weekends.  However, most of our offers in our office arrive on Wednesday.  So, I think that buyers that are working during the week with an agent might be a better buyer?  I see some of my agents really st...

Who wants to write a book with me of new terms that we can write to put on listing descriptions?  I think we definitely need to come up with some....

Do you have business hours?  If not, how do you balance your time with your family and are they resentful that you talk and handle business all the time? I think I created business hours after hearing from kids of Realtors who resented their parents.  When you do you think the public will accept ...

What is the thinking again on listing on the 9's, or even a funky number for that matter?  In other words why list a home at $249,900  or $249,999?  Or even better 249,986 or something like that.  Just want to get my thinking straight on why homeowners and agents list that way?  Please give me yo...

My buyers don't seem to know much about the tax credit.  What it is the best website that you know of that spells it out easily.  I found one, but it did not mention that you can do the tax credit on townhomes.

Just curious if you guys are giving your business card to everyone you meet?  And, if you are, does it have any kind of tag line on it that states what you do or stand for?
