After watching the news this morning and seeing pictures of NYC inundated by water, I counted my blessings that the biggest inconvenience I have had so far today is I ran out of sugar for my coffee.

Like most of you I have been watching the weather channel all weekend, keeping myself updated on Hurricane Sandy. I am hundreds of miles from the storm, but as I went to bed last night, I could hear the trees outside brushing against the house in the stiff breeze. It always astounds me when I hea...

Have you ever run across an agent that is in over their head on something? No, I don't mean us, I mean someone who is working a deal where they really should not be? I have this happening now. I have a buyer of a short sale property where I believe the listing agent is in over her head. Here is w...
  I was just sitting here wondering if I should go ahead and post tomorrow's blog now because I will be on the road tomorrow to my high school reunion in NC most of the day.
