From the wonderful C. Tann Starr. A Realtors' perspective.  This is a reblog of a very well written post that all buyers (and sellers) might enjoy reading. Momentum After The Tax Credit Expires? Seriously? Suffering From Lookie-Lou-Itis? This is why I don't do a lot of interviews. I am not into ...
This has been an ongoing problem for me, whether it is listing or representing a buyer. When I list a property, I try to let people (and their Realtors) know what is needed.

I have been fighting a bad cold all week and the arrival of this basket was very welcome. The person who sent me the basket was not a relative, but rather a now "friend" whom I had met o...
Okay, I admit it! I did not see Bob Stewarts Shift challenge until today and it's too late to order it and receive it before December 29th and I can use the 500 points! So here is my contribution to the cause of the book Shift!  I am not a Keller Williams Agent, but I am a fan of the Millionaire ...
Many of you do not know me here on Active Rain because I have not been blogging as regularly as one needs to do to keep on top of Google.
