What makes a good Realtor?  I think most of us would find it easier to answer the question what makes a bad Realtor.  The reasons are numerous when it comes to the negative side of this equation, but the positive side is a little harder, or is it?

We have finished the 1st quarter of 2009.  How has it effected you?  Did the press influence how you spend your income?  At a local level my first impression of the economy is that it is good.  Do you agree? or Disagree?

Wow, it is cold today, but it is warming up.  Started out at -26 degrees, yes that is 26 below ZERO.  At 11 m it had warmed up, a nice -15, now it's up to -11 degrees.  I love my I-phone, it keeps me in touch with the weather, as if I didn't realize that it was cold. Oh, by the way it's 73 in Lah...

I have been advertising and market in print and online for 15 years.  I have seen many types of advertising and been to the seminars.  I've read the books on horizontal vs. vertical advertising, but the question always comes up.  Is it productive and is the ROI (return on investment) better than ...
