I get the call frequently. "He is asking me who is winning.  He thinks we are playing cards, but we are eating dinner.  I don't know what to tell him." It's my Mom. She's not sure the right thing to say to my 89 year old Dad to calm him down.  Do you play into his delusions, or correct them?  We ...

My seller was in escrow on his new home and HIS seller was moving out that day! We were 12 days from closing. Crap.  This is when the...

Seller #1 after accepting an offer within one week.  "Wow, I'm an easy one for you.  You barely had to do anything to earn your commission."  Hmmm think...
