Greg Nino had a fun post I saw earlier this evening.  He is a real estate agent in Houston, and he was sharing some of the crazy things he's seen while showing homes.  Most agents have stories like those... and I was reminded of a few of mine.  Here are some of mine... Dead Guy House We called fo...

It is time again for the Smokerise Baptist Church Car Show.  This will be the 12th annual show; it started in 1999.  Last year, despite weather that was challenging (causing the show to be delayed a week, and still raining at various times through the day), some very cool vehicles came out for th...

The garages in most homes are less than spectacular.  In fact, a lot of them (including mine... excuse soon) won't even hold a car.  They seem to collect all sorts of things, from Christmas decorations to sports equipment.  All of that is in addition to tools, lawn equipment and the bulky stuff t...

I love to cruise around eBay.  There are SO many cool things to see.  eBay Motors might be the coolest place ever.  Between the military vehicles, race cars and RVs, I am in heaven.  And then there is the opportunity to dream in the Boat section or while looking at aircraft...  There is something...

I stopped into Legends at Parkview recently to find out how the new project was coming.  They didn’t have a model ready to go yet, but should have one built out completely soon.  And I’ll be back to visit when it is ready to go.  But, in the mean time… Image by lane.bailey via Flickr If you haven...

While speaking with a prospective client, we touched on home marketing.  As we were discussing it, I was asked about venues and their importance...  "Should we be on Craigslist, MLS, Trulia, Zillow, etc?"  My reply was "Of course... we want to be as many places as we can keep track of... but most...
