RainCamp Boston was one of the best investments of my time in a long time!  As a relative newcomer to AR, I have been "getting my feet wet" blogging on Active Rain, but not seeing the "google juice" everyone has been telling me about. Well, in less than the first hour, I already had a list of tip...
I've really had to consider lately, what it means to be a "neighbor".  If you've read one of my earlier posts this week, you know I've had an anonymous e-mail from a AGITATED@BOILINGPOINT.COM - a "neighbor" on my street complaining about "trash" in my yard. Well, really, just some large bulk item...
So Mr. Seller, you want to price your house so you have "room" to negotiate with a buyer? The problem is, the amount of room you want as a buffer may make the buyer think you're just not serious enough to start negotiations with.  If you have negotiating room between your asking price and the act...
One of my initial questions to a new potential buyer is "Have you been pre-qualified or pre-approved by a bank or lender for your purchase?"  When someone asks me, "What's the difference?"

So what can YOU learn from a Dung Beetle??It had been a  hot and muggy day and I had just started making dinner when my husba...
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  As I just posted on my brother's page:  James, I am SOOOO in agreement with you on this one.  As a matter of fact, I'm going to re-print your letter and give the devil MY official notice on this subject as well!  He is playing with FIRE! (Of course, that shouldn't be a surprise...
While I am a real estate broker, and not a home stager by trade, I am a firm believer that staging a home can really make a difference--and knowing what people will not be able to accommodate right up front really is important. Some time ago we listed the home of an elderly woman--a member of the...
I have long stood for the importance of the Code of Ethics followed by REALTORS®,to the extent that I have been involved at the local and state level with the Professional Standards Committee and the Grievance Committees of Greater Hartford Association of REALTORS® and the Connecticut Association...
