Well Active Rainers, I just reached that 1,000,000 mark and I am so pleased that this has been accomplished.  It has been a fun trip and I have learned so much along the way.There is so much knowledge with the ARs that post such valuable information from all over our fair lands.  North, East, South and West.  I know that we do not do business the same way all over the country but the basic skills are ture everywhere.  Keeping in mind that above all, we have a unique fudicary relationship with those we represent.  Let's keep that spirit of comaradie alive and well for the next 1,000,000.Just remember, "Old agents never die, they just become listless". Have a delightful day, Ginger Of Southport

Hello ActiveRainer, It is possible to make your own surgical mask.  I understand tht hospitals are running out and that those of us that are getting them are causing real problems for those that really need them.I have attached a You Tube Video that will show us how to make them.  Keep in mind that the mask does not protect us from flowing germs....but helps us in keeping our hands off of our face. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMA7a6xO3G0 The best thing, as I understand, it to wash your hands a lot. Be Safe and Stay Well. Ginger Harper

 I am enjoying the program BombBomb for a month...Trial time. Part of what they want me to do is to come up with a really great TagLine? Don't know if I understand that so well.  Can someone give me good ideas for Tag Lines? Thanks, Ginger Harper

    DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN...? All the girls had ugly gym uniforms? It took five minutes for the TV warm up? Nearly everyone's Mom was at home when the kids got home from school? Nobody owned a purebred dog? When a quarter was a decent allowance? You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny? Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces? All your male teachers wore neckties and female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels? You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time? And you didn't pay for air?  And, you got trading stamps to boot? Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box? It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents? They ...

  One of the biggest things that we are faced with still in our area, is the dreams of what was going on in 2004 and  2005.  That day is gone. What we have to do as a Realtor and as a professional is to educate our buyers as to TODAY'S Market.  We all sold properties in 2005 that we are having to sell for half of what they sold during the Good Ole Days! When I have a seller  to call me and say that they bought in 2005 and HAVE to SELL  right a way..I just cringe. Who knew?  This is a nationwide happening, not a local problem. We have to be honest with our sellers and give them the facts.  And hopefully we will be able to relieve some of their pain. I ask them to talk with their CPA or with an Attorney, but there are sometimes that they may need to just "walk away".

  I always enjoy this time of the year and this year, we are going to have a lot of family around us to enjoy the fishing, swimming and cook outs. This is also a time that all of the family gets together to pick the grapes for the harvest and making of grape jelly and juices.. Always a fun time and we reap the benefits of the jelly all year long. Sure does take good on a cool November Morning on Biscuits with our Grape Jelly and Butte. Have a delightful Labor Day.! Ginger Of Southport   www.GingerHarper.com

 Since I have been in this glorious business for nearly 36 years, I have decided that I would like to become a mentor for the new agents that are coming into the office. I have been to all of the classes and I have taken the refresher courses over and over again...(Sweathogs, Smart, DeLuca, Buffini etc..) and I love the learning of the ideas and processes that the Professionals think we should all know in order to be successful. There are great points with all of these programs, but common sense is vital also along with some basic knowledge. I am looking forward to sparking a bit of knowledge to those that want to learn, that have the capacity, and the desire to learn.  Outside the Box!

This is what we do ...  Right?I had a great morning showing 3rd floor units to a delightful couple with 2 small  precious children.   It is great fun  to get out and meet with folks to see what their needs are. I think that our most important job is to match people with properties.  That will deteremine the success of us all. Hope you are having a great day, Much success in writing an Offer to Purchase..

  I just listed a house that is now a part of an estate.  There was food left in the cabinets that is unopened and bought recently.   Canned veggies and fruits, oil, sugar, spices, spaghetti noodles, jars of Spaghetti Sauce(unopened).. The executrix of the estate wants me to clean it out.   Do you think it is alright to give it to a food pantry, or church or salvation army to distribute to other that may be hungry.    I hate to just throw it away.    What would you do?   Ginger of Southport

 I am still curious and wondering how to get Linking points in the system.  I have worked on this for anhour or so with no success.  I do not understand what a tag is either. ' Tags are not key words.  I know that some of you are laughing at this old dog learning new tricks.  But at least I amwilling to learn. With warm regards, Ginger Willis Harper
