What is the Right Thing to do? In the movie A Few Good Men we learn the difference between following orders by superiors and doing the right thing.  We learn that there are consequences for both.  It is not so different being a Realtor.  There are laws that tell us what to do, there are brokerage...

Winter Blues? Happy 2015!  Welcome grey, cold, wet, yuck and despair!  It is so easy to get a little down this time of year when the sun hides or the temperature dips into the frigid range and there are no holidays to prepare for.  I have never been a fan of being out in Kansas winter weather, un...

Happy New Year, 2015! And a fond farewell to 2014. 2014 you will be missed, but I will not dwell on your passing.  I learned a lot of valuable lessons from my time spent with you, cried and laughed, prayed, yelled and meditated, and was able to help some buyers and sellers within the confines of ...

Tuesday Tour - Gardner Foreclosures.  While it is sad that the previous owners of the following properties ended up losing their homes to foreclosure, the best outcome now for the neighbors is for these homes to be sold to new home owners who will maintain them.  That being said, this morning I t...

Looking forward to 2015 always requires looking back at 2014! 2014 was a pretty good year for me. I hit some personal goals, met some truly wonderful people, had 4 featured blogs, and closed on 43 homes. There were some sad moments (losing my Jessie in September) and some truly happy memories.

Listing Agents, Please Consider Buyer Agent Safety when you are listing a home.  Lately, with the heightened awareness of being safe while out showing, I have started leaving feedback about safety concerns.  I have not been keenly aware myself about where I put lock boxes or giving Sellers instru...

My personal safety is my first job.  My second is being a Realtor®.    Recently I wrote a blog about open house etiquette for buyers.  Some of the comments unnerved me.  Mostly the comments which seemed to show a complete lack of concern over personal safety.   As Realtors, we tend to work solo....

Open House Etiquette for Buyers.  You didn't know you had rules when you went to open houses?  Well, there are some!  First, be polite.  The agent there is not there for you to practice your rude behavior.  If you are working with a Buyer's Agent, just present your Open House Pass, or their busi...

Taking offense is a choice.  Years ago my father said to me that if I choose to be offended by what someone else says, I am giving that person power over my life. That seems to have changed a little in the past few years, and it bewilders me.  Somehow, being offended has become the vehicle by whi...
