  It’s a sad time we live in. Having lived through the boom time of the 1990's and early 2000's so many have forgotten or never learned what we once though of as basic professionalism. I don’t fault those with less than 20 years experience, I blame their brokers! Then again many maybe most of tod...
Not all airplanes fly at mac speeds, not all homes are priced in fractions of a million! I’ve been watching MTV real estate again, I find their agents appalling, but the real estate fascinates me! That’s what ties today’s subjects together. Since most of us remember best what we hear last let’s s...
  I’m not an attorney.   I’m not a CPA.   I’m not a tax adviser.   I’m not a financial planner.   I’m not a financial adviser. Well, never deliberately anyway!   What I am is a well trained mortgage lender and REALTOR® trained by the best. I’ve been in the field since 1969.   With that understood...

I had bought a black and white television set at an estate sale, the huge thing had a round tube squared off on the top and bottom...
        "I’ve got a problem" If a friend or acquaintance said to you "I’ve got a problem" you almost smile before catching yourself, and carefully expressing concern. Admit it we all have problems! Most of us don’t talk about our problems, so when someone admits a problem we’re a little pleased t...
  Opportunity Abounds 2013. I had a great experience for an hour last week. I logged into AR and saw a comment from an old friend left just eight minutes earlier. I called him. We spent the next hour talking real estate.  We talked about opportunities in the coming year, we talked about still fal...
You can be seen on the phone, I remember something I learned early in my sale career, one very simple thing that I believe really helped my sales. Something so simple that we forget it. How to make a better impression on the phone. Add a mirror behind your phone! The Westdale company kept a mirro...
Gotcha Gotcha Again! My friend Bryant Tutas posted The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act Has Been Extended it’s a good post, but is the extension good publpc policy? For as long as I can remember we’ve taxed any portion of the principal portion of a loan that is forgiven. It’s a simple idea if...
A Long, Long Time A Go in a place I use to know there lived a tribe of Friendly Bankers. They opened their doors at 10 each morning and closed promptly at 3. But, if you knocked on the back door by the big free parking lot you could get in after 8:15AM or until 5:00PM. The head teller always keep...
