I’ve done a few short sales, my first was as a banker making the decisions back in ‘71 or ‘72 then as a real estate broker acting as a true buyer’s broker saving under represented seller’s. I first taught "Short Sales" back in ‘76 or ‘77, I’ve written about it in at least two of my books. I tell ...
Good By To My First Love Like so many boys my age my first love was an older woman. An incredible beauty. Not the slightest bit demure. Chaste in appearance and reputation and persona. In my youth we spent an hour ever week day after school with her and her friends. In my teens we spent many an e...
  Every good salesperson is a little "cocky"! They are a little arrogant! They start a little earlier. They work a little latter. They drive a little faster. They take a few more classes.

An old "B" western (Best film from 1956.) The tale of an old battle with the Indians (American Aborigines) the set i...
I don’t like houses with out covered front porches!                    Homes should have a front porch at least 6 to 8 feet wide and twice as long. A place where your callers can get out of the weather. A place where you can step out and talk casually or even sit with your callers. I love wrap-a-...
  Faced with tyrannical oppression, a small grouped of armed civilians changed the world! Using arms equivalent to individual military weapons and a scarce few artillery pieces, with only limited ammo these brave men sacrificed their all to change their world and our’s for the better and to prote...
Somewhere between diapers and kindergarten we were taught to shake hands. Early on it was considered cute, Mom or Dad would say shake and out would come our hand just like "Teddy" our Chow-Chow extended his paw, often at the same time.
