Who Says We Can’t Get Along On Sunday Real Estate Tip of the Day. Since rediscovering my feeder a month ago, I have come to a realization that bird watching, can be both exciting and interactive. What can be learned by studying animal life can tell us a few things as well. At the feeder there is a certain intimidation factor, where on the ground not so much. They seem to have to take turns regardless of the species and some just get chased away period. Parrots if you noticed in this clip come in a flock, and land in a group. There are three on the feeder and five on the ground.  If you ever saw their nest, it is the size that could measure 2’ x 3’ enclosed with a doorway. I swear they also remodel too, for you can see them moving around inside adjusting the twigs.   My tip of the day is...

I’m a Buyer’s Agent and a Whole Lot MoreFor some of you that may be unfamiliar with the term it is the practice of real estate broker and their agents representing a buyer in a real estate transaction rather than, by default, representing the seller either directly or as a sub-agent. Sounds confusing but really it is not. I like to think of it someone that has your back, or someone looking out for your best interest, not the interest of just making the sale.   A brief history of the term goes something like this: In most U.S. states and Canadian provinces, until the 1990s, buyers who worked with an agent of a real estate broker in finding a house were customers of the brokerage, since, by most common law of most states at the time, the broker represented only sellers. It is only since t...

Are you crazy or obsessed with Active Rain’s Point System?  I think who ever dreamed up this point system was a genius. For me it not only has challenged me to be consistent with posting and writing. It encourages you to stay involved and engaged. Plus who doesn’t love seeing themselves move up in the polls I like to call it (Election year). I have set point goals for the week, monthly, quarterly and by the end of the year.  I know it won’t matter once you reach a certain point, like a million or so. Of course each 100k point does say something about the dedication of those that have made the commitment. So I say to each that may stop by, it has given me a push to do something that only a few months ago I never would have considered.  A Sincere Thank you goes to the Active Rain Organiza...
