I recently upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Sprint.  I am amazed at every single feature except that of the phone itself. It might be possible as Samsung has pushed the limits of the digital camera, the GPS, the Apps, etc., that they had to give up something and it appears that it is in...
I get several phone calls a week from companies promising to get me on the "first page of Google".  I also get countless emails promising to acheive the same effect.  Each of these companies can "claim" to acheive this amazing result because of the fact there is no Official first page of Google. ...
I have noticed that my blogs are not being picked up by Google's bots the way they used to.  I used to be able to write a blog and within a half an hour, Google would have already indexed it and it would show up in the searches. However, since Trulia acquired ActiveRain and changed the domain to ...
A few years ago I came up with an exciting new approach to converting open house visitors to clients.  I am a pretty laid back Realtor since I have been in the business for 23 years and my past clients and referrals keep me fairly busy.  However, I still do open houses to placate my sellers even ...
As Realtors, we try to take pride in staying in contact with our clients and customers.  Yet I have already received two emails this morning with a reply address of noreply@_____.com.   Doesn't that tell your audience that you are only interested in talking and not listening?

According to the Intermountain MLS, there are 3,09...
I have been using the Galaxy Note 2 since it was first released back in late 2012, so I am in the market for a new cell phone.  Not because my Note 2 is worn out or no longer functional, but just because I am a Geek and want a more state of the art phone. I researched the Galaxy Note 4 Edge but a...
Many Realtors do an Open House by just showing up the day of the open house and planting a few open house signs. However, I try to be a lot more pro-active.  I like letting my clients know what I am doing on their behalf to actively market and sell their homes, so here is what I did for an open h...
Start your new year out by visiting this great single level home in North East Boise.  This home is located at 3140 E. Birdsong Drive and is located on near the highest part of Boulder Heights subdivision. You will enjoy the protected views out the back of the home while enjoying the large courty...
Join us for the El Korah Shriner's Black Light Patrol 18th Annual Crab Feed.  All you can eat Dungeness crab, garlic bread, and cole slaw.  Tickets are $30 each and must be bought in advance as this event always sells out.   This is such a fun event that years ago, Mary-Edith Hill started invitin...
