The Rant from Raleigh

Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Realty
Pretty much whenever I go for a coffee, I have a conversation with folks and inevitably we talk about Real Estate.  "How's the market?" to which I always reply "It depends" Fortunately Raleigh, Cary and the Triangle area have not sufffered as dearly as other parts of the country. With a large num...
Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?  Dumb question!   At this rate I don't think I'll ever get there. So I guess I'll have to do it the old fashion way... (Not quite as exciting as answering a few questions for a million bucks).  We were thinking of several ways to save a few mor...
Happy New Year one and all! I have to admit I've been hibernating for the past month and a half. Once winter settles in I'm one for locking the doors, lighting the fireplace, enjoying a fine red and watching absolutely nothing on television> Since I migrated South of the 49th Parallel I have watc...
Forgive father it has been several days since my last RANT !! Well folks the end is near for, well not human kind but certainly for our dear friends the Automakers. I have tried but I just cannot contain myself. This weekend the "Big Three" or the artists formerly known as employers, have asked f...

"We fought for our meals" The current economic meltdown is not what the rock band "The Who " had intended. What a mess ! If things weren't bad enough >> Now I will admit I have in past  mentioned the State of Affairs and I've discussed gloom and doom, and eerily as it may seem I've been 100% on. ...
It's hard not to forget the late eighties hit by Bobby McFerrin, "Don't worry be happy" As of late the news  consistently delivers gloom and doom and in a sense I like many perpetuate the ramblings. The common theme is the Real Estate markets and financial markets are in turmoil in the United Sta...
Here we are 158 years later and the "Canary in the Coal Mine" as they are so aptly or were so aptly referred to is dead! Yes, were talking about Lehman Brothers. Where does it all end ?/ The good news is  Bank of America will buy Merrill Lynch by issuing stock. On the other side Goldman Sachs and...
What a week ! Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to listen to a keynote speaker none other than Peter Laviolette from the Carolina Hurricanes. It was interesting to hear his perspective on the game of hockey and team building. Some of it may have been lost on his audience of Real Estate Profess...
Well another day, another week. World news today, NPR reported today that food stamps can now be used for organic food at farmers markets across the nation. So, how is it that middle class folk like myself can't afford to grocery shop there but the poor can? We can still eat ground beef and oatme...
