It feels as though I have been injected with a new found energy. Almost a week of  what I consider to be cold weather had my eternal summer soul pouting. I moped around the house wondering if the 40 degree, blistering pain would ever end. It did! Yesterday evening, I grabbed my favorite flip flop...

You can imagine my shock when a $995.00 check arrived on my desk today!  One of my agents charged their client a Finder's Fee for placing a tenant in their rental home.  The charge was the first months' rent.   This was a cute little cottage, so it did not stay on the rental market very long at a...

Okay, you've spent your two weeks "earning" your real estate license....... Now what? Even in a good market, this can be a tough business for a new agent to get traction. One of the first things I did when I became licensed in 1999 was undertake an email campaign aimed at successful-looking Real...

What type of Realtor are you? Do you march to the beat of a different drum or do you sashay along with the crowd. Maybe you are brand new and aren't quite sure exactly. Possibly you have been around so long you forgot? Perusing websites, real estate ads, signs, and business cards, it is quickly e...
Hello Fellow Beaufort Realtors.  I received an e-mail about an open house in Pleasant Point this Tuesday, Feb. 10th.  There was no address on the e-mail so, as a good co-worker and friend of Marjorie Beals, I wanted to give you an update.  Tuesday's Realtor Open House is at 59 Downing Street (MLS...

The best part of our annual cold snap is the day it is over! The sun rose this morning and out popped the smiling faces of the anti-cold Beaufortonians. We came crawling out like a bunch of sun-worshiping fiddler crabs. It is safe to say it would be a challenge to find a frown on this glorious Sp...

This article was in the Military news section and I think it's worth a view from everyone. Military men and women have no choice when they transfer, it's "do your time here and move on". Our military folks have really been caught in the middle of the meltdown and it's really becoming an issue wit...

After nine years as a full-time Realtor, suffice it to say I've learned a few hard lessons. One of the most difficult lessons I've learned is to not take anything for granted. And yet, every once in a while,  I still get burned by something which seems like the most obvious thing in the world. A ...

As Realtors, mortgage lenders, real estate inspectors, and professional stagers we have become quite accustomed to empathy from most other professions regarding the volatility of our chosen career. In polite conversation, even the most stoic will lend an empathetic ear to our rants and tirades. T...

Mornin everyone! I  asked for pro's and con's for the TREO and Blackerry smartphones and the majority that replied back didn't know the Blackberry (certain models) is supported by GE Security for use as an EKey. I thought this was a huge issue since I know a lot of Realtors that use the Blackberr...

I am proud of the effort put forth in my latest "under contract". I worked really hard to make absolutely certain this home was at the fore front of every Realtor's, purchaser's, and prospective purchaser's mind. At the onset my sellers and I both knew it would take about 9-12 months, based on ma...
