I am an optimist, and search for the opportunity in each challenge that comes my way. But I can't help but laugh everytime I hear a seller ask for an unrealistic price and then tell me "but we're negotiable." I understand it is my role to explain to them that negotiations can't even begin until t...

This year has already started on an exciting note and I know that this year will be prosperous for all those who see the market for what it is: Opportunity. Just as it is easier to buy that hot stock or hot mutual fund after a tremendous run up the year before, it's easier to invest in the market...

I had a great conversation with a friend of mine today in the title business. We talked about the market and strategies. Bottomline, clients stay with you and work with you because of the value you bring, not only to the transaction, but to their business and to their life. My clients never buy a...

I heard someone say that the market still had a significant drop to go. His feeling was that the housing market will collapse even further because a 5% interest rate to a 7% interest rate is a 40% increase and housing has not fallen 40%. I will implore those involved to look at the #'s and not th...

I had a meeting with an architect today and he said that they are saying the market is going to be bad again next year. I asked him, "For who?" Markets aren't good or bad - they just change.
