Stick in the business long enough and you'll see all sorts of things. Eventually you'll run into naked people. It happens. Here's five of many reasons why ... 1. The agent showing the home shows up too early or too late and doesn't update their showing time with the showing service, or the listin...
Last month Betty decided to get the hell out of Moscow, Texas and make a run for the bigger city, Dallas. After 16 years she had sold just about every house in the small Texas town of about 200 people. Greener pastures with more opportunity awaited her in "Big D."Before making the move, Betty pla...
Almost all of the dialog about a pocket listing centers around the slimy fingers of the greedy listing agent. Everyone (just about) agrees that if a listing agent holds a listing away from the MLS that he's obviously an evil pig that should be exposed and some how punished for not creating MORE e...

Here's what I would do If I was Mr. Rubio...1. I would make sure my wife was working with an agent who specializ...
For years I've heard members of our industry refer to AR as a blogging site for "Newbies." As if we're a bunch of lost green horns bumping into each other with stupid questions & unworthy blog posts. Would someone please inform me where the elite bloggers of real estate graduate to after they're ...
Last week one of my listings expired. Last year I had it listed and then a few days later my seller decided "not to sell." So, I put the home in a withdrawal status. When you input a listing on the MLS it requires both a listing date and an expiration date. On the day of expiration the MLS automa...

Should Realtors be exempt from certain articles when selling their own home? Last week an ang...
