One of the reasons my AR participation had slowed way down was the computer at home would sometimes work, sometimes not.  When I needed to work from home, I developed a work around the issues by using harsh language and just abruptly shutting the computer down.  Then, I'd give it time to consider...
All of a sudden I've realized that I've been in real estate for a good while and I don't actually remember being a really green agent for very long.  I'm sure I made mistakes and was awkward for a while with searching, qualifying, etc but I really hope I was never rude to another agent! Brand new...
So, nothing spurs a little blog activity like nuisance behavior.  There have always been agents wanting to "float" a verbal.  So much easier, right?  Nope.   Here's what happens when a buyer insists that their agent submit a verbal offer.  As the listing agent, I'm going to present the offer to t...
Again...yes, I'm back again, to posting.  It won't be elegant with photos, graphics and fancy fonts...not yet but let's go. What did it take this time?  How about a little irritation and frustration with a couple of transactions over the last few months.  Who gets hurt?  Our clients!  Our buyers ...

While I was perusing the ActiveRain Q&A section, I noticed that Kelyn Mills posted the question asking if buyer agents give the Home Inspection Report to sellers.  So many responses!  Different agents have different opinions (big surprise there) but what was really interesting in this particular ...
When I first got my real estate license it came as a complete surprise that the profession of real estate is actually stepping from one rabbit hole into another and another and another.  I've gotten used to the rabbit holes and have even learned to appreciate them since they absolutely keep my wa...
So...again with the week or so absence from blogging?  What's my excuse this time?  Easy...working for the mantra "Fortune Smiles On Those Who Work Their Bottoms Off".  The last couple of months have been fraught with bottom working for sure.  All of the real estate components at play - buyers, s...
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of listing and selling a retreat center in a small community in Whittier, North Carolina.  Since then, the new owners have sold a portion and thoughtfully improved the remaining two buildings...a five bedroom farmhouse and a detached bonus building with endless...
