For our new rental listings, I had to print up some giant photos (18x22) and mount them on some foam core poster to put in our model home.  I printed out the photos on the big paper, but then had to attach the photos to the foam core.  I decided that I was going to see what new technologies were ...
We just took on a set of rental listings and we did not have interior dimensions for any of them.  Consequently, I was going to have to measure dozens of rooms, and the idea of taking the tape measure to do it brought up visions of hours and hours measuring the rooms.  So, I went to Home Depot an...
I took some pole pics at a the rentals in Carlsbad, and I thought I would share a ground-level picture and a pole picture that's up about 35-38 feet.  Our new pole only goes to 24ft, but a climbed up a hill to get the extra height.Here's the first photo taken from the ground behind the unit.Not a...
I know Margaret has made some posts about our Canon 24mm Tilt/Shift Lens, and so I thought someone might find this of interest.Margaret probably indicated that we usually take our photos vertically and shift the lens horizontally, thus yielding a landscape photo.  I don't usually rotate the shift...
We just got a deal to market a duplex complex of 25 units for a client.  This is their first substantial multi-family complex, and they are just getting geared up with all of their systems.  Does anyone have any recommendations about background checking vendors?

Margaret wouldn't necessarily want me to show you this, but I think it's one of our funniest props that we use in our real estate practice.  It's a life-size cutout of Margaret.  She posed as though she was holding a brochure box, and then I mounted a real brochure box on the cutout.  We use this...
When we started in the real estate business, we threw away the cards from listings after they closed.  But, after about a year, I decided to start keeping all the cards, and we've been doing that for many years now.  I bought a binder at Office Depot and the business card holder pages.  I separat...
