When I started my brokerage, I had no intention of bringing on additional agents. I had a number of agents from my previous office ask to come along with me, but they didn't do anything in the previous office, so I declined their requests. That may sound harsh, and maybe a little selfish, but I'm...
Today, I received the sad news that a local business is closing this week. I told my wife last week that I didn't see them lasting much longer. This business had been a thriving business since the 1960s. I can remember going to it as a kid and buying candy and sodas. What went wrong?I hesitate to...

It has added an incredible dimension to our time. It's amazing.With that said, I also find the time we're living in ...

Little did I realize that a little heart-stealer was about to arrive and change my life.I had a listing that was ...

There is one reoccurring comment I receive from buyers and sellers who call my office. It's, "I wasn't expecting anyone to pick up." I probably hear that comment a couple dozen times a year. I always find that humorous because, well, I'm in business. One of the primary ways people reach me is thr...
One of the things I love about running an independent brokerage is the rapid decision making process that is afforded my brokerage. I can change directions in an instant, and more than once I should have acted faster on some decisions. I decided that 2019 would be the year of getting lean. When I...
