Here you'll find Real Estate market updates and other information of interest to those buying & selling a home.
Several years ago I began using car magnets to advertise my business.  I was always reluctant to do so because I'm a pretty quiet, reserved and shy kinda guy.  HA!  But no...really.  I hate to be pushy or always spouting off about my business to friends and acquaintances.  I don't want to be that...
Freddie Mac recently released it’s PMMS, the Primary Mortgage Market Survey stating that the average fixed rates for mortgages remained fairly steady.  The 30 year fixed rate mortgage was averaging 3.7% at a little more than ½ a point which was down from 4.41% this same time last year.This is gre...
I recall back in the 90's right before getting into Real Estate, I was working as an Account Executive for a very large bank.  We focused mostly on what's popularly known as "A Paper", which is to say we only gave loans to those who were creditworthy and expected to be able to pay the loan paymen...

You may be expecting to read a blog post about Easter eggs, egg coloring contests, pretty Easter dresses, etc.  But if you know me, you know I'm not all about that.  When it comes to Easter, my kids and grandkids always do the typical Easter egg hunts and we always get them Easter baskets.  Even ...
What I have eliminated for 2015 will probably be different than what most agents will be posting about. I have gone through different advertising and mailing processes, starting and stopping them at different times.  I've used different types of technology off & on in the past and I've wasted mon...
I want you to win $50,000.  Check out the short video below that tells you how. About two years ago I paid a great company to build a mobile search app for my smartphone that I could share with clients.  It was a great app and all of my clients loved it.  Then earlier this year Keller Williams pr...
I've had buyers come and go for various reasons.  They have a job change that affects their ability or need to buy a new home.  Or interest rates change and cause them to no longer qualify for what they want.  But yesterday was a little different.
