If you have been reading my blogs lately, you know I managed to get a flat-fee listing under contract with agreeable terms to all, and today was our home inspection.  When I arrived, there was a group confab in the driveway, which is never a good sign, and the home inspector was very close to wal...

If you have followed my posts recently, I was covering for a co-worker who was skiing in Italy....a bit jealous, but I don't ski, so it's all good. His buyer wanted to see several homes in one specific community, and I attempted to set up an appointment for Monday at 5:30pm, had to settle for Thu...

As you may recall from a prior blog post, I had some trouble earlier this week gaining access to a house a buyer wanted to see. We managed to see the house today, and my heart just dropped as the door opened, and I realized, the homeowner would not only be present, but would also be showing the p...

I'm working with a bevy of motivated qualified buyers (my favorite kind!), and two of the houses one buyer wanted to see last night were listed with a limited service brokerage, the type where the listing agent simply put a price tag on the time and energy it takes him to input the data into the ...

This blog dovetails on my post yesterday about Neptune Beach, and I had previously posted about Jacksonville Beach months of inventory.

Most people are somewhat disorganized, as am I, and the one of the best times to get organized is NOW! Choose the most un-organized area of your home/life/office, and make a step-by-step plan t...

I'm sure you've noticed the "Re-Blog" tab at the top of many posts, it's right next to the "Suggest" tab. Why Re-Blog? Isn't that being lazy, and un-creative, and kind of like watching a re-run? It's really not. I re-blog when I see content that is fresh and relevant.  Let's face it, we all blog ...
