"I called three agents, and you're the first one who answered his phone". Said the voice at the other end of the call."I'd like you to show me this $600,000 property.  The listing agent offered to show it to me, but I want my own agent".I was suspicious.  It sounded too easy, but as the call cont...
I've been a real estate agent a long time.  A looong time. And during that time I've attended a lot of inspections, and I learn something new at each and every inspection.The knowledge I've picked up from random inspectors has proved invaluable as I show properties to my clients.  It helps me kno...
This week I was fortunate enough to have a visit from my daughter, son-in-law and my two grandkids.This is a photo of Leo, my grandson, and I'm reading him a bedtime story.As you can see, we're having a good time. He's almost six and a half years old, and still likes his "Baba" (that's me) to rea...

I had the extreme good fortune to accompany my daughter as she delivered the Keynote speech for the graduating class of the occupational therapy department of the University of Illinois Chicago campus.My daughter graduated as an O.T. from the very same program almost 10 years ago, and had been b...
In mentoring some new agents, I always tell them that Active Rain can be a great source of business, and they should consider blogging on the site.The most frequent objection I get is the perennial "I don't know what to write".I had that conversation with a new agent just this morning, and I told...
For those of you who don't know, today was National Hot Dog day. And as such, I treated myself to a quintessential Chicago-style hot dog.Not, as you might think, because I wanted one.... oh no, no, no... because National Hot Dog day required it of me.  It's like a national obligation.  The world ...
Here in Evanston, Illinois, we're fortunate to have one of the best 4th of July celebrations in the country.  That's right, in the entire country.  We have the 2nd largest 4th of July parade in the state (second only to the City of Chicago's 4th of July parade)... with over 140 entrants, (many of...
