This could be a challenge for some, given the current market conditions and the economy.  However, let's pretend, just for a few minutes, that you don't really need to hang on to these listings.   Ask yourself these questions;    Is the Seller listening to your advice?    Is the product (property...

As I drove around this morning, for my appointments, I was able to grab a few good shots of roads that have been cleaned out and some of those, that still need big shovels to help.  There is a city in Connecitcut, Bridgeport, where they featured the neighborhood on the news, this morning.  Appare...
Here are some of my A+ folks!  I used De icer that I purchased by the case, many of them, at Sam's Club.  The Tagline read: I'm here to provide you and your referrals 20/20 vision to maneuver today's wintery market!  Then, add OBTW  This tagline was provided to me by another Buffini Member, Carol...

Did you ever notice that you find a good listing, priced below market, and think that it is a true bargain?  Only to have a client want to take another $20,000 off the price?  Well, yes it happens.  More now, than, ever. What would you do? I remove my feelings and head from the idea, immediately....
After a rather busy day, I took some time out, to make a pie for good friends of mine.  They relocated their home to our state, for a job.  I am thrilled to have them nearby and thankful for the help that they have offered to me.  When they help me, they will not take payment.  So, as a form of t...
