I believe in communication with friends, clients, and the world in keeping things simple. From my Southern group of friends in my life they passed this funny one on to me to keep things pretty basic. I like that. It helps with people like me who have simple brains. Redneck Ten CommandmentsSome pe...
My Realtor colleagues have lamented the pace of change with technology and how the speed of change seems each year to be taking something away from each of us. Texting rather than talking. Emailing rather than phoning or visiting. Typing rather than cursive writing. The personal touch has faded. ...

This example was someone sitting on the fence between renting a home or buying a home. As REALTORS much guidance is give...
In Real Estate terms, the Realtor for life praise one heaps upon themselves, on the one hand to me, at least, reflected dedication, but on the other hand it seemed a departure from reality. Who could really be in your life forever, or was it just an old cliche, and lip service to outstanding serv...
