 It's a snow day!  Hope everyone is staying warm and extra careful if driving in the Kansas City metro area.  It's time to check the November home sales stats for Brookside--which are showing an increase over last year. I'm taking the numbers from single family home sales in the main Brookside zi...
My story happened several years seems like all my crazy stories happened when I was a newer agent.  Now most of the unusual issues that pop up are related to inspections, or multiple offer situations, or other incidents that I won't mention here! Anyway, I was working with a couple who h...

Continuing with the November challenge of gratitude...I'm sure every agent reading this blog can relate to the headline!!   When I started in this business, I didn't even think of the possibility that clients would become friends.  Of course, when meeting a potential client for the first time, it...
