So as the story goes a young man was making faces in class.  The teacher approached him and told him this.  "When I was young I was told if I made faces my face would get stuck and it would look that way for life".  The young man thought for a moment and told the teacher "Well you were warned".  ...

For those who are still in the business remember when you represented the seller no matter who you were working for "buyer beware" phrase.  Now there are forms for this and forms for that some are good and some are not so good.  So I was wondering what the future holds for agents and how many mor...

I don't have any but I have in the past.  Don't you just hate it that first impressions sometimes mask the true inter self of the person?  I have fired some of my clients because of this what about you.   We will all experience this several times in our career but don't let it get you down. Now f...

So tell me if you ever heard of this one?  I tell you this real estate and the meaning of some words you can associate with it is endless.  Just take a look at all the words wordsmith and its associates have generated and this is just one more.  The meaning of per am'byoo lat: to walk through, ov...

That's right you did not read anything into this at all.  What can you do with a 5.00 that's (five) dollar worth of steel?  You could use it as a paperweight and the profit you would make is 0.00 or you could use it to throw and the profit would still be 0.00  Well let's see if you made horseshoe...

I know there are those of you out there who think some of the top producers are just lucky.  I know I did for the longest time.  Now that I'm in the real estate business I know it's not luck (there are exceptions) but its hard work.  Its 08:55 PM and I should be getting ready for bed but no I'm w...

  So tell me what motivates you.  Is it the green stuff?  What about providing for your family is that your motivation.  The point is find out what motivates you and use it to grow your business.  Who knows during the phase of finding out what motivates you; you may find there are more things tha...

Don't you love it when a plan comes together?  You go out and get a listing, put it on the market and in a day or two you get an offer or even better you get the buyer to boot.  Oh! the dreams we dream.  It does happen sometimes but in the real world you need to caution your sellers it may take s...

Some people think this is lucky.  Others avoid it like the plague.  As for myself I make no comment either positive or negative.  I have nothing against it but I also have nothing for it.  You find it at casinos all the time.  You may be wondering what septenary means well ok I'll tell you it mea...

From my family to yours may you have a kef year.  This phenomenon may or may not be but it's nice to think so.  I would like this for the world but then reality sets in and that is a sad thing.  It's nice to think this and one can only hope.  The meaning of kef well that's the easy part its: well...

I do this everyday.  Does one ever get is 100% or course they do.  Now my question is do you have this perfected.  If you don't are you working on it and if not why not.  It's your livelihood and your business and your clients deserve the best from you.  The meaning of technic: to weave, build, j...

There was this agent in an office I had worked in that worried about every detail.  While it is a good thing to make sure all the bases are covered she carried it to the extreme.  I'm not joking when I say she would go from one agent to another showing them the contract and getting their input ab...

I sure try and do this with each of my clients.  Does it work all the time of course not but I keep trying.  But again that's why they make Fords, Chevrolets, BMW'S and the like.  I believe with every fiber of my being I'm the greatest agent, negotiator etc on the face of the planet.  Does everyo...

I have and somewhere along the line I bet you have to.  I done things I haven't been proud of and it came around to bite me.  I don't as a practice just try and do something I really don't want to do.  Sadly to say at the time it seems perfectly logical to me.  Anyway the meaning of comeuppance: ...

As the story goes the Queen called one of her subjects and told him:  "I have need of you to go to another country and take care of my business."  "I have consulted my advisors and they all agreed you are the one who can take care of my business and therefore go and do what you do best".  To that...

I do this without hesitation and you should also.  This is something I believe that everyone would like to do but some just don't know how.  Trust me when I started I had several people try this and I had to come up with what felt comfortable to me.  The meaning of abecedarian: any beginner or no...

I've had to do this in my short time in real estate more times than I care to.  It's something I do not enjoy and I bet you don't either.  But it's part of your job and you do have a duty to do your job.  I have a client I'm working with now and I've delivered this message more than once.  The me...

I know one thing for sure mine isn't this?  You know you can change this with the blink of an eye.  Have you looked in the mirror to see how you can change this?  It's so simple all you need to change is what you're looking at.    The meaning of insipid is: not exciting or interesting; dull; life...

Are you one of those agents who will tell a client anything to get the listing?  Do you tell your buyers the moon is the limit and then don't deliver?  Do you make promises that you know deep down inside you, you can't make good?  If so than you are a pie crust agent.  Be as solid as the pan you ...

I wonder how many of you are going to read this one.  Also I wonder how many are going to comment or use this today or tomorrow or next week, month, year you get the idea.  Now for those of you who don't know me I do this every minute of every day of every week and again you get the idea.  If you...
