Did you know that you can save some key strokes and use a Gmail "canned response" when prospecting? Okay, okay, I know that personal relationships are what we are all doing here, but what about the leads that RE/MAX sends me from the website?

At the initial consultation the Seller informed me of the ONE buyer who showed interest while they had their home on Craigslist almost 6 months ago. They asked for an exclusion, which I agreed to (what a...

Don't like being without power during a storm? This house has a generator which automatically turns on of the ...
So here is the BIG question: "What are we going to use those offices for which are currently packed with ugly metal file cabinets, IRS boxes, receipts and other files??" Paperless is here and it's not as hard as people make it out to be. Personally, I've been using tools like Docusign, Dropbox, G...
This is a great home that has that "feeling" when you walk into it. This one-owner home made upgrades and had some voice with the builder when it was constructed in 2006.
