It used to be a pleasure to work with a title company. The people were smart and pleasant. They worked as partners--to help you get the deal done. In a crunch, title clerks often saved my bacon. I was truly grateful. But that was then. These days title is just another swamp an agent has to get th...
But sometimes that is the only choice.I had sold Janice (not her real name) her house 5 years ago, so I knew she was a bit neurotic. I did much more hand-holding in the process than usual but I got a lot of satisfaction too. I got Janice out of a basement apartment, into a pleasant row house with...

Does anyone know of a system that looks good and lasts? Calling all decorators out there! Is the best way to deal with those dated colors like baby blue and carnation pink just t...
It comes up in so many home inspections--even when there is a "complete" renovation. The downstairs outlets are grounded but for some reason the upstairs outlets never seem to be. What should the buyers' realtor do? The sellers won't rip out the upstairs drywall (or plaster!) and redo the wiring....
After 16 years as a realtor, I finally got to go to Mediation last month. The dispute was over the $5000 first deposit in a deal that fell through. The pig-headed listing agent refused to give it back to my buyer. Six months had passed.**We were sent a list of 40 names and asked if we had any obj...
