How well do you qualify Buyers prior to showing them property? Do you: 1. Require that they not have a home to sell first? 2. Require that they speak with a mortgage lender and get pre-qualified? 3. Require that they meet you at your office for a consultation before showing them property? (Even i...
Well, it's kinda like chicken pox...if you hang out long enough with those who are contagious, you are bound to catch them...  This morning, I was just tagged by Debbie Summers (who I've been hanging out with at the Street of Dreams) to write a meme...Funny thing is, I don't even know what the he...
Protecting a Seller's interest is a Listing Agent's ethical and legal obligation. One of the ways I have found to be most effective in positioning the Seller for success is by having two separate files for the property. The first should be the "official office file" and should contain the listing...
I tend to be a positive person who believes that we should focus on the positive attributes of someone. No matter who I am dealing with, I try to always give the benefit of the doubt and believe that people are being truthful unless they prove me otherwise in their actions or in their words. No ...

This year, the event featured three of the largest and most expensive homes ever showcased in the tour and...
In Florida, most real estate contracts are written with the contingency of satisfactory inspections and the ability of the Buyer to obtain financing. For those of us who have never lived in another state, or practiced real estate anywhere else, we've always done it that way and quite frankly, it ...
It's hard for me to admit, but yes...I have a 6th grader.  I never really thought of myself as being old enough to have a near "teenager" but, here I am with one...and I could never be more proud of mine!

Selling or purchasing a home can be exciting and scary at the same time! The goal of my blog is to educate Central Florida Buyers & Sellers about the Good, the Bad & the Ugly things that can happen in a real estate transaction! As an advocate for consumers in Orange, Seminole and Volusia County, I especially enjoy working with first-time home buyers, relocation buyers, sellers of distressed property and luxury home sellers. Native to Central Florida, I'd welcome the opportunity to be your advocate too!
