WHAT?  Such a question reminded me how little consumers know about our business.  This question was asked of me when I was sitting at a client's home with my laptop and wireless broadband card for internet.  He asked of the internet card, "Does your company pay for that?"  They were dumbfounded w...
Wow, this is one beautiful home. So beautiful in fact that when people view it during an open house they constantly ask if anyone actually lives there.  If you're looking for a home in the mid-500's, call me to see it. 1781 Hames Court, Concord, CA 94521Located in a desirable, quiet cul-de-sac ne...
I guess change is inevitable in this business, so why was I surprised to hear Intero East Bay was no longer? Well, I guess I shouldn't have been.  When Jeff Sposito left Alain Pinel Realtors with management and many agents 4 years ago it was to reinvent a real estate company for the agents.  Well...

Imagine my shock when I read a RealTalk post this morning describing that not all agents are honest when it comes to their testimonials? Not only that but it seems hundreds are doing it!   (I won't name the website company here.) Ok, check it out for yourself, search google for "Bryan & Yvonne Ca...

I was at a sellers house yesterday to list their home.  They sprung on me at the last minute that they expected an extremely discounted commission.  I am a full service agent, with a full service firm and these were PAST CLIENTS!  This, after discussing the market times (2 - 6 months for some hou...
I took the lead following reading Ardell's Seattle Real Estate Blog: tell you a story, just one of many, about how "we" are deeply moved by our clients, and their lives and families.  The story begins with a spry beautiful lady contacting me thru e-mail. Ful...
