  If you are married you have it, if you have a girlfriend, boyfriend you have it.  If you have ever been in love you have experienced it.  If someone loves you, you have it.  Now I guess you’re wondering what it is, well sunshine I’ll tell ya the meaning of (dwen’de) a special quality or charm that makes a person irresistibly attractive.  Now if we could have the same quality with our clients.

So those of you with inquiry minds do you know the meaning of this word before I give you the meaning? You do this without thinking with your contracts and clients. Come on put your thinking caps on and give it a try. OK I have given you enough time if you haven’t figured it out by now the meaning of (shi kan’) to arrange, bring about. You do this when the buyer and seller agree on a purchase price. Now go forth and conquer with the new word you learned today.

  If you do your job correctly this won’t happen.  Get your mind in high gear and try and think of the meaning before I reveal it.  Do you have it?  I take that back even if you do your job correctly this may still happen.  If you tell someone something and that person tells another by the time it gets back to you I wonder if it was the same thing you told the first person.  Anyway without any more hesitation the meaning of (im brol’yo) a confused misunderstanding or disagreement.  So now are you confused?  If not I did well if you are confused I also did well.  This is what some contracts come across as and it’s confusing to the client so go over each one and in detail.  Whew!! I’m glad this one is over it’s so confusing…

I think I'm this but my wife doesn't think so.  For the most part I view life this way.  Don't get me wrong I have had those moments when it was not jocose.  I do put on a false front because inside I'm doing this all the time.  The meaning of jocose: joking or playful; humorous.  Wake up with a smile and the day won't go wrong.  Smile with someone that's having a bad day and make their day jocose.  Join wordsmith on Activerain.  It's a great day to buy or sell a home

Hello everyone, I have not been on here lately to blog but wanted to share with everyone that recently here in Northwest Arkansas on our local news station 40/29, Bella Vista Arkansas was named one of the top 25 places to retire. It actually made it to #12. I thought that was great! I sell real estate in this area and Bella Vista is a great place to live for all ages not just for people that want to retire. It has been known as a retirement community for a long time and still is but over the recent years it has grown so much and many families that have moved to this area have found Bella Vista as their favorite pick. Our major towns are Bentonville, Home of Wal-mart Home Office, Springdale which has the Tyson Corporate office, Rogers of course and Fayetteville which is the Home of the R...

Bill Evans of Jet Stream Lending always keeps me up to date on the latest mortgage news.  Below is an email he sent me this morning outlining some worrying information about the USDA Rural Development Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program (SFHGLP).  For any agents or buyers that currently have a Rural Development qualifying property under contract, this information is for you!  Rural Development Newsflash! The Federal Government is operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) covering the period from October 1, 2008 through arch 6, 2009.  For the Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program (SFHGLP), a guarantee level of $2.6 billion was allocated under the Continuing Resolution.  Demand for the DFHGLP is at a historic high, and we anticipate this funding will be exhausted by J...

We took this photo for a project we're working on. It's Loch Lomond in Bella Vista AR. The shot turned out too beautiful to not share.   Everything was perfect that day for the shoot - the sky, the weather, the colors in the trees.           -------------------------------------------------------------------- Sandy Jagmin Brick Road Visuals Professional Virtual Tours in Northwest Arkansas www.BrickRoadVisuals.com

I am tasked by realtors to go into all kinds of homes to photograph them. Most are beautiful homes and some even leave me with a little house envy. Around here right in the middle of the US we don't have any beach front property, very few grand cityscape views, but we do have our own marvelous touches of nature. Wouldn't you love to look out your window and see this everyday?         -------------------------------------------------------------------- Sandy Jagmin Brick Road Visuals Professional Virtual Tours in Northwest Arkansas www.BrickRoadVisuals.com

Many say that Bella Vista, AR is a fabulous secret known only to those who live there and a few others.  It offers a small town, large lots, rural feeling with big city amenities just minutes away.  Because Benton Co. is home to the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart and its' brother, Sam's Stores, Tyson, world's largest meat processor, JBHunt, and Car Mart, there are people in our area who demand the best of everything.  That would include our excellent airport that has non-stop flights to destinations all over the USA, known as XNA or NWA Regional Airport.  We also have excellent medical facilities and professionals, educational opportunities, cultural offerings at the U of AR, NWACC, Walton Arts Center, and the Ozark Center for the Arts.  Shopping?  Oh, Yes!  There are several large ...
