One will become President the other will be history. This two governors, one (Bobby Jindel) decided he would not take any of the stimulus money and the other Charlie Crist) although at first he was against it decided since a senate would be coming open that it was in his best interest to change or at least appear to change sides. Both have hung their careers on the stimulus package because should it fail, one would be betting that Jindal will ride it all the way to the white house and Crist will not be able to get voted in as dog catcher. However if it works, the opposite will be true. In two years we will know because if Crist is put on the street or Jindal is reelected than that means the public will be moving away from Obama. If Jindal is put on the street and Crist gets in the senat...

I was reading a book today on economics this morning and found some of it to be pure stupidity, such as, Did you know that the government has coolers around the country full of cheese, Why? it is a way to subsidize the milk industry. Some goes to people on welfare ( back in the day we called it commodity cheese) don't ask me why. Every year the dispose of the cheese by dumping in the ocean. Why don't the give it away or to a third world country (great question) because it would lower the price on milk products thus defeating the purpose of subsidies. Did you knowthat the government pays farmers billions of dollars every year to not plant. No that's right, to not plant. Why? because if all the farm land was truly farmed there would be too much grain on the market which would make prices ...

This was the headline today then the story line was.... Florida announced today that they will need 3.5 billion from the state coffers and expect 10 billion from the stimulus bill in order to hire 280,000 full time state employees to work throughout the state. The next question in my mind was what will these employees be doing, finding a cure for cancer NO, extra law enforcement agents to enforce our laws to get all the illegal the hell out of here and back to California NO, I get it extra prison guards so the prisoners will quit escaping and killing people NO. No here it is in the last paragragh if you took the time to get over the excitement to read that far. Do to the economics woes of the state the demand for Food Stamps is at a record high and the state needs the extra employees in...

It would be simpler to say what I am not passionate about!  Is there really anything I am lukewarm on? Suffice to say very little! My passions would have to at least include Gardening, Interior Design (Interior Redo!), Cooking, Wine, Art, Real Estate, Faith, Family, My Husband ... And those who know me well understand that was stream of consciousness not order of importance                                                           .  There is also another one: Friends? Yes Friends! Probably the most successful I have been in all my endeavors would be the relationships I have managed to preserve. Truly the gems in my life would be those wonderful women I have collected and proudly call friends.   There are many categories these treasures fit into. Some are over 30 years enduring, some ar...

Broker Bud and I were talking about an agent in my office that is part time, doesn't want any floor, no open houses and no going out riding around with buyers from place to place on his gas. I ask Broker Bud what to do? Here was his niche design, Lots yep lots and lots of lots. So John and I mailed out letters to almost every owner of a vacant lot in the county. We included a one page listing agreement that in short order said that the listing was for one year, we would present any offer and if we found a buyer we would be paid a commission of 15%. No marketing plan, no promises of any type other than a sign, MLS listing and their price. If they and I accepted the terms we had a deal. In the first month we had 15 listings 3 of which were obviously priced right, as they sold. The second ...

Recently the Pensacola Association of Realtors Hosted their yearly economic summit recapping 2008 and forecasting trends into 2009. The summit was led by three local industry experts; John Priller a local appraiser, Al Muller a representative of Metro Market Trends and Dr. Rick Harper a University Professor and the head of the Haas Center for Business Research and Economic Development. John Priller opened the summit with a quick overview of current market conditions.  He first mentioned that local appraisers in the greater Pensacola area have recently been forced to adhere to increasingly restrictive HUD guidelines regarding the required number of comparable listings as well as the elidgeability of the listings to be used as comparables.  Restrictions dealt not only with time period of ...

  Stressed, short of time, tired, feel like your on a treadmill and can't get off.  Here are a few of the ways I conquer stress myself and it can help you too.   1. Access your finances, we all know or heard of someone that was working beyond belief and people thought he was the money man as his Mercedes was repossess from the parking lot. You can have the trophies and the corner office but as a top producer I want the net (as in what I take home).  2. Stop filling your life with more STUFF - When I purchase anything, whether a car (drives my wife nuts needless to say the car salesman) a computer or pretty much anything over $50. I make myself wait one week to the day ad if I still want I get but 90% of the time I am over it. 3. Pay your self first -I have set my salary and regardless o...

With 1 out 4 homes on the market either being a short sale or foreclosure there are some things you may need to know. At Charles Stallions Real Estate Services Inc. we are here to help. All agents are board certified, spent countless hours in the field selling foreclosures and short sales not just class rooms thinking about. When you put you name on a contract to buy a foreclosed property, you better know more than just how to write. Such as How does a foreclosure sale work? Can a former seller take back the property and under what conditions? Do I need or even want a home inspection since the bank is not warranting anything? Are their leins against the property and am I protected against future claims? What makes this foreclosure sale different than my brother in laws or any other in l...

As Pittsburg and Arizona get ready in Tampa, we are getting ready here for what should be the biggest block party in history or at least here. From 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday February 1st people will come rom Alabama and Florida as well as anywhere else people are from, visiting the panhandle. For eight blocks there will be bands, family fun and activities for everyone. The block party will end at 5 just in time for the game, so join me and the gang at Will Call to watch and enjoy the game. This will be the beginning of great times ahead as we kick off Mardi Gra as well.

While doing a 5K run this morning, I got to thinking how late is to late to wait on someone. Whether it is a showing appointment or you being late for a listing appointment. You the race was scheduled at 7:30 am, I got there in the cold at 6:30, at 7:30 they ask for everyone to start lining up. In all at that time there was about 75 people who waited and waited for about 12 more all total to show up. They slowly trickled in with coffee, coats and laughter. Some of the people waiting were not too happy. But granted these were the best of the runners in due respect. But really how long should we have waited or should we have went on without them. How long would you wait for a customer at a showing or how long would you expect them to wait for you.

Does anyone read Mike Papantonio's articles? This guy is a lawyer in Pensacola, I think he is trying to get elected to something one day I just don't know what. The reason I say that is because he has been riding on the shirt tail of a once popular House of Representative from Pensacolas for about three years now. He writes hilarious articles all aimed at either a fantasy of his or deemed to tear down someone that he is jealous of. Which brings me to his latest point which was to ridicule Rush Limbaugh, now I'm no fan of Rush either but the article just spewed of jealousy. Talking about how Rush wanted Obama to fail, which of course was probably taken out of context. He even said his church said a pray for Obama and that he was so proud of his church for doing that. But he never mention...

I was attending a Governors Task Force meeting last Friday when Larry leaned over and said hey you heard the news. State Farm is going to announce on Monday that they will be leaving Florida in part because they cannot raise their insurance fees. I was thinking to my self that I hope they take about half the other thieves with em. But instead at lunch, it was the buzz around the table. So I said haven't, if anything from this last election cycle, have we not learned the scare tactics in politics and corporate america. Does anyone think that the second largest seller of auto insurance in the state is just going to give that up, h...no. Someone even said that they would still sell auto and life and I said not in the state of Florida. The governor and legislature is not going to set by and...

Last weekend I had the privilege of joining twenty four other business people in an annual Christian Leadership event. The program runs for one year and is designed to teach communitiy minded folks how to become better leaders. During the year we meet once a week to go over local programs, economic plans and general ideas that we can use to better our areas. As well as six times during the ear we have weekend retreats to accomplish certain areas of each other lives that will create self improvement on an individual basis. We arrived on Friday afternoon around 1 pm and came back home on Monday around 11 am. We were split up into two - six people teams. One of the things we had to do was overcome a fear that we had. Of course when we were selected to go through the program we filled out a...

ZZ....? Yes the ZZ Plant ! This is the most sensational plant imaginable.... You stage a home beautifully...the look is to die for ......and your homeowners do not have a green thumb......no they don't even have a brown thumb...and you are beginning to believe they do not have a thumb. This conclusion was arrived by the deduction that it is physically impossible for them to operate a watering device ! Or better yet the house is empty and you are so busy ( Probably a Realtor with out a thumb, if the truth were known !) you cannot get back to water the pitiful plants.... FEAR NOT ZZ has arrived. These plants really can be abused beyond belief. Though I do not recommending going past a month to water them I know I have neglected mine for at least three weeks....Having gone on record as bei...
