When you stood up in front of the other agents with your local board and raised your right hand you swore an oath.  To that end you owe this to your clients.  I'm currently working through a mess and am trying to work things out with the seller and buyer but I think this one is a lost cause.  I w...

You'll like this one.  It's like the macerate one I used a while back.  If you can do this you can get more sellers and buyers.  It's a simple concept but how you do it is up to you.  I have my methods and the possibilities are endless on how you do this.  The meaning of uncinate: bent like a hoo...

I write blogs using words not associated with real estate and turn them into usage associated with something in real estate.  Anyway the other day I wrote a blog and another agent wrote the caption for this blog.  When I first read it I thought of Dr. Seuss and his books.  How many times do you u...

Everyone has one and the job for you is to find it in your clients.  Most of you know the common analogy of spur is something cowboys tied onto boots and used it to get the horse moving.  Another common thought is bone spurs.  The kind of spur I'm looking for is the meaning I took from it and tha...

I'm a fan of old movies especially war movies.  I've watched some of them so much I can quote a lot of them verbatim.  One of my favorites is Sergeant York.  For those of you who haven't seen it I suggest you do so.  It has a lot of things that America once stood for but has lost.  One of the lin...

Wouldn't be nice if every client or agent was to do this?  It would make our job so much easier.  Some agents that are sitting on the sideline might even enjoy coming to work.  I know it would make me work even harder than I do but do you think this is really going to happen?  We can only hope so...

This is a good one.  You do this without thinking and you do this on a daily basis.  So tell me do you do this and if not why not it's your job.  I constantly think of this and I do this all the time.  My mind is in motion and its thinking of this for my clients or my future business.  The meanin...

I do this on a consistent basis and I wonder do you.  This is not easy to do and sometimes it's downright frustrating to the point of why bother.  I do this because it has brought me sales and referrals.  Most agents pass over these and I take advantage of the situation. You might ask what fossa ...

So there you are living day to day wondering when the next person is going to call you to list their property.  You might be lying on the couch feeling sorry for yourself because the sell you thought was (in the bag) fell through.  Are you thinking of giving up and going to get a "real" job?  Ple...

I haven't had this happen to me by my clients (present and past) or by my fellow agents.  In my past profession I certainly have had it happen to me on more times than I care to admit, none of which I was guilty of.  But any way I hope this has not happened to you as I know all agents are (should...

This rule applies to everyone.  No one is exempt however some may be grandfathered in but certain rules apply.  Whenever rules change you will find these people.  I've did this in the past but I found it is better to role with the punches than do this.  The meaning of obstreperous is:  noisy, boi...

I know when I started in this business I needed guidance as I was trying to fill out the documents using terminology I used in law enforcement.  I quickly found out the words that were common to me were foreign to real estate.  It took me awhile to adjust so don't let your contracts be on quaky g...

So tell me are you the agent that's sits on their backside and waiting for the phone to ring?  Are you afraid to pick up the dreaded phone and make a cold call or knock on a door?  How about getting up in front of a crowd and telling them something about real estate that you're familiar with?  If...

This happens to me all the time.  I have a listing appointment and bring all the information to the table and at the last minute this happens.  Just recently I had a contract that was worked out prior to the document being written.  The contract was signed by the buyers and presented to the selle...

You know when you post as many blogs as I do and you get comments on any of them the comments are appreciated.  However when someone takes the time to call you with a suggestion you know some people really appreciate you blogs and are trying to help.  So thanks again Ms. Rome and I'll take you up...

I know this is the first time I've used this double new word but they are needed to give this information meaning.  When we take a listing, deliver a contract have a client sign any documents we are in essence doing this.  Consider the meaning when you are filling out the documents as you are lib...

I thankfully don't have one of these and so far (knock on wood) I haven't experienced this.  The question I have is what reaction I will have if I experience this phenomenon.  I have prepared myself for such an issue.  Oh by the way the meaning of insular: like an island; detached; isolated.  So ...

Wouldn't it be nice to have your clients do this with you?  I have most of mine do this and it's been wonderful I only wish all of them would.  It takes out all guess work and opens up the line of communication between you and your client.  You might ask me what galliard stands for and I'll tell ...

Well now this is a new one on me.  I never heard of this word but I sure know what it means now.  I've tried to get my clients to do this and 99.99% do but some just doesn't get it.  As many times as I've tried they can't seem to respond to my requests.  The meaning of effectors: that part of a n...
