Boy, I can't tell you how happy I am to have the Pennsylvania Primary today!  Not that I'm able to vote, because I'm not.  But, for the last week, the Primaries have taken time away from all of the media talking heads that keep spewing gloom and doom for the housing market in this area!  I wish w...

How did this happen?  One day I was out of school and the whole world was in front of me......Now, after living through three grown children, once again, the whole world is in front of me!  My kids refer to people my age as "old" and I cringe.  And, it dawns on me.....I'm middle aged!  My husband...

I was speaking with an insurance professional the other day.  He started to suggest seminars that we could offer to the public.  One of the ideas he proposed struck a cord with me as I am a landlord.  He said that when a landlord secures a tenant, the landlord should demand that the tenant gets t...

I have been working with clients who have been struggling with whether to purchase a home or not.  We have been going through an emtional ringer and doing a lot of wrestling.  We have done a lot of listening (mostly), talking and sharing ideas.  I've had to think about what I was saying during th...

If you read my blog last week, you know that I'm crazy about "trash night".  Trash is one of my pet peeves.  I was just having dinner with my husband.  He grabs my hand and looks deeply into my eyes......and says those three magic words, "It's trash night!"  I didn't have to tell him, nag him or ...

Just a quick story for the beginning of the week....there is a septic inspector around these parts who is a true legend.  She makes agents quake in their boots. I found out that one of my listings was to be inspected by the "legend".    One the day she arrived for the septic inspection, to add mo...

 The morning is probably my favorite time of day.  I am an early riser.  There are times when I will actually quiet myself to listen to the arms of the clock with that methodical rhythm.  The sound is somehow comforting, as I know the person that I am, I will not quiet myself to listen to the sou...

I can remember being in the business for only two years, at the height of the market.  I had a house that I was doing an open house at.  It was a tough one.  An A frame on a secluded lot with no basement, but a full sized "twin home" right next to the house that the sellers used as an office.  So...

I work as a partner in a "boutique" style real estate office in a rural setting.  We have some wonderful new agents that need lots of help but also have lots to offer.  I don't believe in a "paid" mentoring system so I have agents that shadow me doing many different things.  I work together with ...
