The other day I was driving my daughter to a birthday party at a local skating rink.  She was excited, this was the first party (of many I'm sure) of the new school year.  My daughter is 9 years old and has never roller skated before.  She's a very good roller blader...but has never done the 4 wh...
If you never hear (or read) from me again, it means I won the lotto.  You see, today I spent 3 hours at our annual Realtor Expo.  The theme this year was Game Shows, so as you can imagine, there were lots of games and of course, where there are games, there are PRIZES!!   I had the touch today.  ...
Almost Five years ago when I was at Brodsky School of Real Estate I remember one of our instructors once told us..."If you haven't bought a refrigerator, you're probably not doing business"   At the time I didn't think much of this little quote, but over the last four years, I've thought about it...

Today was my first day of a three day seminar for Rich Dad Education.  It was a pretty long day, 8:30AM - 7:00PM.  I still don't know how I will come out of this.  As I mentioned once before, I am going because a great investor client of mine is going and wanted me to go with her.  So my motivati...
This may come off as a bit of an rant and I'm sorry.  I was speaking with another agent today, who seems to think he knows it all. There is a common misconception that an As-Is addendum to a property means that the sellers will make no repairs.  This is simply not true.  If you read the contact (...
People keep asking me..."'s business?, I hear it's pretty rough out there"  I always smile and say its going well thank you.  Then of course they go on about what a terrible market it is.  I'm always baffled by this.  It is not a terrible market...if your buying a home!!   If you are in t...
