There is a group in the Atlanta Metro area that are conducting home invasions that Police believe are specifically targeting Indian families. They believe that this is due to the abundance of jewelry worn by Indian women.  In a recent event, the perpetrators noticed the father working in the gara...
...get away from "the deal" because it is going to end ugly. A recent client and I were involved in a short sale offer that, on it's face, looked promising. The promise, however ended right there, and might as well have been a dark alley. In what should have been a multiple offer-highest & best s...
... then you should be talking about it. I have been very fortunate and spoiled to have had the same mentor for the past 22 years. He has walked the road with me through things good and bad. Somewhere along the way, I realized that the road is actually a two-way street. Since then, I have had the...
is often more important than a big payday. We recently closed a transaction on a condo that if you just focus on the numbers, it would not provide any huge fanfare.

... is to just slow down. I don't know that it was on my radar to slow down last week, but God's time seldom matches up to mine, nor do I ever recall him asking my opinion in the first place. That said, I had recently gotten into a place where it was hard to see the forest because of the trees. T...
... but this most recent one really surprised me. I recently put in an offer on a short sale property for a client. I really thought the offer was a slam dunk. It was a full asking price offer that could be either financed or cash transaction. There were no ridiculous stipulations or anything. I ...
and I am not just talking about the weather. Business is smoking hot too. It is amazing to me just how fast things are moving for my clients right now. In fact, when not dealing with the bank that is an albatross (you all know to which one I refer), foreclosure and short sale responses are coming...
