Although the family reunion a couple of weeks ago taught me I'm the only one that is not aging I was able to capture this Kodak Moment Enjoy the moment and enjoy the wonder that mother nature provides

If you say, "I can't buy a house". I say you don't want one very badly. There is a HUGE HOUSING SALE GOING ON NOW? Across the nation we are able to buy housing at deeply discounted prices.  You may be thinking or saying, 'my credit score is too low and I don't have any money saved'. This SALE has...

I've been busy doing what real estate agents do best! BUYING A HOUSE! Many of you have read in my blogs about my commute to the office from Eureka Springs. Yes, the 40 mile one way stretch through the beautiful Arkansas countryside. Add about 10 miles per day to the average for running around Ben...

You've been there time and time again.  When you go to a restaurant and you finish with the main course you keep your fork for the dessert.  How about when you're at a family outing and the host comes around and tells you to keep your fork the best is yet to come.  What visions goes on in your he...

A couple of weeks ago Northwest Arkansas Community College celebrated their 20th anniversary. When the college opened in 1990, 1200 students enrolled in classes that were held in churches, elementary schools, and anywhere else space was available in Bentonville and Rogers. Back then some folks re...

I'm the kind of person that is goal driven.  If I did eight deals last year my goal is ten to fifteen this year and next year twenty to twenty five and so on.  Feed me data feed me information that is useful in this market.  I want to learn and spit out the data so I can assist my clients.  The m...

Man oh man do I like this word.  For those of you who chose the military, law enforcement or the fire department for a career I know you have this phenomenon.  Is it only for those professions of course not but it helps.   The meaning of (techt): touched; slightly demented: also used humorously. ...

For those of you who know me present me with a challenge and step back. In my former profession I was injured in the line of duty. While the event was going on I kept telling myself I will not quit, I will not be defeated. I challenge you to accept this challenge. Say to yourself over and over ag...

Let's face it I like talk radio.  I'm a fan of Glenn and Rush not too happy about Hannity but we all have our limits.  Anyway I was listening to one of my radio stations and they were commenting on a speech that Sarah Palin gave in Tulsa at a rally.  If you haven't guessed it already one of the s...

May you never do this to any of your clients.  To knowingly do this would have your career in real estate come to an end.  You caution your client not to do this but if they insist you can back out and have them get another agent or you can document everything and go ahead.  The meaning of (huv' ...

I've done this before and it's not a pleasant task.  This is never a joyous thing but it's part of the job and happens frequently.  The question is how many times must you do this?  The answer is more times than you want.  The meaning of galbanum: a bitter, bad smelling Asiatic gum resin, obtaine...

If you do this to each of your clients be they sellers or buyers you'll do well.  I've tried this and most of the time it works but sometimes it doesn't, when it does happen the real estate transaction goes smother and with less headaches.  The meaning of fictile: that can be molded.  Mold your c...

I just hate this when it happens.  I go out to eat with my lovely bride of 42 years and most of the time this doesn't happen.  When it does for me anyway it spoils the whole evening.  I know none of my fellow agents do this but for those of you who do please consider the other people around you. ...

I'm sure most of you know the meaning of dally or do you?  There are several meanings of dally and the one I'm concentrating on is (to waste time: loiter).  If you waste time and do not respond to your clients you'll lose them.   I have a new listing because the client said that the agent did not...

You may think you have friends but who will stand by you when you're down family.  Otherwise if you want someone to believe in believe in yourself.  How can you be successful if you don't believe in yourself?  If you don't believe you're the best listing agent, negotiator, buyer's agent and so on...

Come on out there in blog land I know I drew a smile and vivid images with this word.  You should try it you'll like it.  I try and do this on a daily basis and when it happens it made my day.  I know people have done it to me and I really appreciated it.  The meaning of bawcock: a good fellow.  ...

When I was looking today for a word to write on I came across this one.  I did not recognize it so I got out the old trusty real estate guide when I was in pre-license class.  Nope not in there either.  That struck me that each and every day I learn something new about real estate which is a good...

Georgia O'Keefe and Winslow Homer along with other world famous artists are on their way to Arkansas. Well sort of. With the opening (likely in 2011 or 2012) of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art northwest Arkansas will become home to what is expected to be one of the most extensive collectio...

It really doesn't make any difference what finger their using.  It can be in some States considered as obscene but in Arkansas a federal judge ruled it is a freedom of speech and therefore you can point or show (the finger) at anyone and there is nothing the cops can do.  I would be interested to...

I don't know about you but at one time it happened to me.  I talk to other agents from time to time and they also have experienced the same with their broker.  I can tell you if you haven't experienced this just a little then you're not doing any business.  Oh yea the meaning of labefaction: down...
