I have had one of these thankfully.  Although I don't recommend this on a daily basis some agents like them.  To those agents I take my hat off to you as I don't understand it hey it's your business not mine.  Anyway I would guess you want to know the meaning of bathos well its: an abrupt often l...

If you go to a listing presentation don't let any influence from the outside affect your gut decision that this listing is just not right for you.  Hopefully you decision to stay with your mate was not made on an outside influence it was because of their inner beauty among other reasons that make...

I like this one.  Not because I have clients that do this but I'm sure there are some out there.  I know for sure I've heard it from other agents.  I'm just thankful that so far I have not had to deal with them but I know their coming.  So what is barratry well its: the criminal offense of bringi...

Ok people and I not just talking to other agents.  My outlook is not to make people mad and have fun.  Some of the time I come across as a grouchy old man so says my wife.  I know it's hard to believe but that's how a lot of people view me.  Don't get me wrong I've had my moments but anyway when ...

Are you one of those people like me?  Once someone tells me I can't do something (games on) and we'll see.  I remember when I told the relatives I was studying to become a realtor I got those yea right looks.  Anyway I have an addictive habit in that once I decide on a career I devote my whole se...

I've seen this in some agents.  They come to this point because they can't let it go.  24-7 they are in the game.  They come to wonder why they are losing clients and not getting any business.  They work themselves into exhaustion and find it difficult to come back.  Take time to enjoy other thin...

Tell me when you're at work (which should be 24-7) do you sometimes find yourself doing this?  If you are SNAP OUT OF IT and get busy.  Don't let yourself fall victim to this wherever you are in your career. Don't fall victim or lure anyone else into this and the meaning of banausic: merely mecha...

Man oh man I know this one hits home.  This just happened to me the other day.  I had written a blog and someone commented on it.  I when I read it took it one way of course it was the wrong way and I responded.  After I cooled off and went back to re-read my comments I found I was a jerk.  The m...

Ever wonder when the storm clouds appear if that one is going to be the bad one you'll never forget.  How about when you know you have made a mistake and the boss wants to see you do you get the deep gut feeling.  Remember in the corporate world or whatever line of work you're in your bosses made...

I know I have and I bet you have to.  I have truly talked my best talk and poured my heart and feelings out to certain people.  Some clients I have spoken to and tried to get their business have come to this.  Nothing has worked for some of these people and I know I just know I could have done a ...

Although I have been talked to in my former profession and once I was actually written up.  I can't remember what I did to be written up so apparently it was no big deal and did not affect my position.  So anyway I know my dad did this but otherwise no one has affected me in this manner.  The mea...

I can't speak for the rest of my office or any other agent on the face of this earth.  I can say that for me man what a ride.  First it started with a listing and then another one Friday.  Today I landed another listing and still another on Friday.  I am working on getting a third for the week.  ...

I have had them in the past and I have only one or two left.  If they start this with me for no good reason I cancel the contract and never look back.  I have too many clients that don't do this.  They realize I'm doing the best I can to market their property.  The meaning of yammer: to whine, wh...

The business of finding homes or property in any venue is one I embrace whole heartedly and enjoy.  There are rules to be in this business and rule number 1 is that the industry is changing as it has in the past and rule number 2 is to refer to rule number 1.  If you are stuck in the past than yo...

Sometimes I wonder where clients get the ideas of what they are asking us to do.  I understand that for the most part the client is right but on occasions I believe they pull the information out of the thin air.  The meaning of ufology: the study of UFO'S.  Maybe someone needs to ask them where t...

Have you noticed when looking over the MLS exchange some of the agents when giving driving directions it's difficult at least to follow them?  They will get you to your destination at some point but man the left and rights get confusing sometimes.  The meaning of wedein: a series of short paralle...

I know when I first started I did this.  As I look back it was not some of the best decisions I have made in my life.  I did it and there's nothing I can do about it.  Since then I have tried to avoid this type of behavior but it's something I have to keep in mind every time I write a contract or...

Oh tell me you don't know someone like this...  They set around all day waiting for the phone to ring or the million dollar prospect to walk through the door and say "I want you to sell me the home of my dreams".  Sad to say there are some agents like that and they get so distraught they just qui...

Now don't go reading anything into this.  I bet ya it's not the word you're thinking about either.  This market at best can be summed it with this sentence: proceeding by abrupt movements or changing by sudden variation which by the way is the meaning of salutatory.  Now go out and show your fell...

You can do this at home in the office but not when it comes to your clients.  You can do this in a lot of ways and sometimes it's a good thing.  I sometimes can be accused of an overkill when it some to this but I need to cover all the bases.  The meaning of parsimony is: to be over-careful in sp...
