Joe Ferrara - @jfsellius A lot has been written about Joe Ferrara today and this piece is an excellent example of why Joe mattered to so many.  As I mentioned in the comments, I didn't have the chance to meet Joe in real life, but I knew through others, his blog, and Twitter.  I was enough to hav...

Reality Bites. There's no easy way to say this.  I've hit rock bottom.  No, the bottom isn't found at the end of a needle, a tent under the overpass, or the last few drops in a bottle of cheap booze.  The bottom is a familiar place to many agents I suspect.  It's cold and dark and not really a f...

Don't mess with Texas. I happened upon Karen Anne Stone's post, "Once Again Active Rain "Fixes" Something that Wasn't Broken!," before it was featured and before I had even seen the new look for the States page.  After reading the post and comments, I had to see what all the ruckus was about.

  Great advice on offer making from another local San Antonio real estate agent. It's not everyday I re-blog something from the competition*, but Robin Rogers of Silverbridge Realty nailed this one.  Making an offer on a home is a big step and although the goal is to get the home for the least am...

It's not always sunshine and roses. In my previous post about Ben Kinney's Soci@l, "10 Days of Pain for 1 Day of Closing," I highlighted one of the sections of the ebook that I really enjoyed.  Never one to give half a picture, I thought perhaps I might discuss something I didn't like about the e...

The theory of "Called Shots."When Brad Andersohn introduced the new "Called Shots" badge on ActiveRain a few days ago, I thought it was a great idea.  The potential to flag posts for feature status has always been there and I've used it many times in my time here at ActiveRain.  While there is al...

Did I just see what I thought I saw? Last night I was watching the ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, catching up on the usual tidbits - the oil spill, the hurricane, and the Russian spy case.  As a kid who grew up in the 70s/80s and someone who has been to Russia several times, I'm interested in ...

This post originally appeared on www.RErockstar.com on May 26, 2010. Do you have to tell the buyer? Death is a topic that most people don’t want to talk about in general and in real estate, it’s no different. I’ve been asked a few times about the details regarding death and disclosure in the stat...

Sometimes you have to look back. I was searching for a post that I wanted to send someone today and while looking through the lists of posts, I saw one that I couldn't quite remember.  I knew I wrote it, but I just didn't remember what it said. Taking a few moments to read through it, I thought i...
