It's always fun to listen to clients discuss the latest trends from the Real Estate experts, as seen on CNN, FOX, or any of the other national broadcasts.  You know that they are trying to figure out if it is good or bad news for them, and will often ask your opinion. A friend, who I decided not ...

     This is easily one of the most asked questions from our buyer clients.  It wasn't that long ago that it was even easier to answer, but not anymore.  The government intervention in the system, the 'you deserve to own a home' mentality, despite the fact that many buyers' didn't have enough dis...

My elderly clients were recently forced to sell their home to pay for legal fees.  Although they had owned the home for many years and did not have a mortgage, the cost of maintaining,heating, repairs, and so on, was far greater than their meager savings and Social Security benefits would cover. ...

     At the ripe old age of 57, and having spent most of my time self employed in another industry, it is fascinating to be learning the skills required of the Realtor.  The younger practitioners are so far ahead of us in the use of technology that it is almost laughable. In addition to being wir...

As we enter the tax season I look forward to meeting once again with my accountant.  We talk more about the upcoming golf season than we do about business.  We always promise to invite the other to our club to play in one event or another.  It wasn't always this way.     Beginning in the mid '70'...
