Casuistry Real Estate Education. As if financial advice by sound byte wasn’t enough. All to many think they’ve learned something about real estate from TV. Like it only takes seeing three dissimilar houses to find the perfect home. One agent can sell you homes in all 50 (57?) states and every Can...
To pay points or not to pay points, that is the question:Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to sufferThe Slings and Arrows of outrageous interest,Or to take Arms against a Sea of high payments,And by opposing lower them: to pay, to sacrificeNo more; and by a payment, to say we endThe heart-ache, and...
It never ceases to amaze me the relevance we find in strange places. I was filling time, Brenda might say killing time, when I stumbled across a list of Ben Disraeli quoits.Ben, an author and politico in Britain, died in 1881.   I couldn’t find the context, but this applies to real estate!   "As ...
Opportunity Then And Now! As rough as some think it is there is always more than one way! Always! If you think we've got troubles today you should have been in the Midwest in 1973!

Mother My Mother, My Mom On Mother’s Day what can I say? It’s Mother’s Day as if the other 364 aren’t! It’s Mother’s Day my siblings and I proclaim our love, just more loudly than the other 364! It’s Mother’s Day and what is she doing feeding Dad and cleaning the house. It’s Mother’s Day and all ...
I had a very great honor today. I’m in awe! I got to talk to a poet that I’ve been looking for since 1974. I got to talk to a man who’s wisdom I’ve been quoting for more than thirty eight years. I’m rarely impressed, jaded by my years at Lake Tahoe and two decades in Las Vegas. But, I got to talk...
It's still a stupid question:You've reached that point in life, somewhere between 18 and senility, that you want a home of your own.
