What do you do when you have no more listings?  Should I go on vacation? I just rented the last of my rental listings, and everything I had listed for sale, SOLD.  I suppose it's a good problem to have, but now I don't know what to do with myself.   I have some buyers I'm working with, and my hou...

I'm a person who is constantly on the go.  I move fast, and I completely over-schedule my days, making me late for everything.  This is something I am working on, and it has been a New Years Resolution many times over to allow for more time for things.  However much time I think I need to allow f...

A month ago I joined a group of Active Rain members in a challenge.  We were to create an original blog post for each day of May.  I was feeling pretty motivated toward the end of April when I joined, but when May came around, I realized I picked the wrong month to make additional commitments.  M...

Every Monday I go to a restaurant in North Raleigh, NC called Lynnwood Grill for their amazing wings.  They have a great .35 wing special that entices me to drive clear across town to gorge myself on chicken.  The wing sauce is so good, I literally lick my plate clean.  They have a bunch of diffe...

I just got a new rental listing in Rochester Heights, which is an older, established neighborhood just a few mintutes south of downtown and right off of I-40.  The owners are thinking of putting it on the market for sale too, and I think it would make a great home for a first time buyer or someon...

I'm writing this from a six foot table inside of the Grand Ballroom at the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS.  It's cold in this room, and even though I'm wearing a dress today, I've brought big tube socks to stay warm.  I've learned from past experiences here.   I'm a Broker in Charge, so...

I spent most of today preparing for a baby shower I was hosting.  I was running around like a mad woman before all the guests had arrived to my neighborhood's clubhouse. I had been "delegating" responsibilities to my husband all morning and afternoon, and being the sweetheart that he is, he even ...

Where do you get your business from?  I was thinking today of all of the leads/clients I have right now, and I thought it was interesting how once I got a little business rolling, it snowballed into an avalanche!  These are the last five people I have signed on. 5. Craigslist - I'm working with a...

This was an amusing sign scrawled in orange paint across the front of a man's home in Cary, NC a few years ago.   It always gave me a good chuckle. The homeowner blamed the town for diverting rainwater from the road into his home during a road widening project on Maynard Rd.  He wanted the town t...
