I've been living in Brevard County Florida now for 11 years.  The first two years I traveled 25 days a month so I really didn't get to experience this area.  And, yes, it's a beautiful area.   So I was just thinking... When I got into Real Estate, I never really thought about the impact that we, ...
Wow!  Is it really true?  Where did all those years go by?  Just yesterday I had hair down to my butt and weighed a whopping 120 pounds.  I've been reflecting a lot the past couple of weeks.  On Jan. 9th I'll turn 50.  I know it's not a big deal to most, but to me it's a realization of mortality ...

It's been a rough few years.  There isn't many people who understand this as much as Realtors understand.  Most of us have seen our businesses plummet over the past 4-5 years.  In Brevard County Florida our home prices have fallen from an average of $275k in 2005 to $117k in 2010.  My personal ho...
Well we are almost a week away from our full day seminar in Orlando on Internet Marketing and Lead Conversion.  If you have been trying to figure out how to generate business by using the Internet, this is one seminar you don't want to miss.  As most of you know I've spent years and tons of money...
I'm sitting in my hotel room, it's 3:41am and I am speaking on lead conversion at Inman's Agent Reboot at 9:30am this morning in Fort Lauderdale.  More and more these days people call my office and send me notes at The Real Estate Success Network, my education company asking how they can improve ...
