ONE DAY A YOUNG BOY ASKED HIS MOM.  WHY ARE YOU CRYING?  "BECAUSE I'M A WOMAN " SHE TOLD HIM. "I DONT UNDERSTAND,"  HE SAID, "AND YOU NEVER WILL, BUT THATS OKAY."  LATER THE LITTLE BOY ASKED HIS FATHER, "WHY DOES MOM SEEM TO CRY FOR NO REASON?"  "ALL WOMEN CRY FOR NO REASON" WAS ALL HIS DAD COULD SAY.  THE LITTLE BOY GREW UP AND BECAME A MAN, STILL WONDERING WHY WOMEN CRY.  FINALLY, HE PUT IN A CALL TO GOD.  WHEN GOD GOT BACK TO HIM, HE ASKED, "GOD WHY DO WOMEN CRY SO EASILY?"  GOD ANSWERED,  "WHEN I MADE WOMAN, I DECIDED SHE HAD TO BE SPECIAL.  I MADE HER SHOULDERS STRONG ENOUGH TO CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD, YET HER ARMS GENTLE ENOUGH TO GIVE COMFORT.  I GAVE HER THE INNER STRENGTH TO ENDURE CHILDBIRTH AND THE REJECTION THAT MANY TIMES WILL COME, EVEN FROM HER OWN CHILDREN.  I GAVE...

     Joe Kendall Realtor with Sandals Realty 239-560-0726 writes;  Todays real estate market around the country has a lot of people facing foreclosure. Which I am sorry to hear and talk about this subject as I know it effects a lot of peoples lives, but I must say you may have some options. I have talked to several people over the last few weeks and everyone situation is different. But I believe in trying to sell your home before it goes to a foreclosure sale and it remains on your credit record. I would suggest you do everything in your power to avoid foreclosure and work with the banks toward a solution everyone can agree with. First of all let me explain a few terms that the banks refer to during the foreclosure process! Let me in real easy to understand terms, explain what a short s...

With the market being slow I have taken the opportunity to participate in several seminars and refresher classes.  The other morning, as I was having coffee and feeling up-beat, I realized that most of the agents I enjoy being around are the ones either learning new methodes for deal with this market or implementing them into their daily routine.  We all know times are tough, but this is a perfect time to refresh ourselves and become creative.  Since I am not a creative thinker I cheat, I go to seminars and pick up my new ideas.  It's amazing how good a few new suggestions can make you feel, and how great you feel when they work; But best of all is how insulated I have become to the negative "the sky if falling" agents who are waiting for the market to shift and the "bidding wars" to st...

       Joe Kendall Realtor with Sandals Realty 239-560-0726 www.viewswflorida.com writes, Sometimes you have to look at where we have come in the last two years in this real estate market in Cape Coral Florida before you have a clear understanding that Now is the Time to Buy. This always helps to get a clear understanding by taking a look at a single neighborhood sold prices then and now. Normally you look at the past and see how much lower the prices where two years ago(past history) and what prices the current market homes are currently selling. But I can tell you in Cape Coral Florida, We have the complete opposite in most places in the country! This example below is Cape Coral Florida, Sailboat, Gulf Access Property with the sold prices in 2005 compared to what the current sold pric...

Let's make a difference in kids lives, I believe we as mature grown-ups we should not only cater to the grown-ups but also pay attention to the teenagers who maybe reaching out for our help. Don't ignore teenagers that misbehave. Most likely they are begging for help, love , attention, and answers from us grown-ups. Don't you remember when you where a kid and you had lots of questions and wondered why there is so much violence and hatred and bad people. Well lets show our children, that is not always the case, I remember one day when I was walking to the convenient store, and a truck drove by and hit me with a beer bottle on my leg, thank God it didn't hit me in the head. I was able to get over it because I had God in my life and knew people loved me. We need to help our children, and t...

Headed down to one of the Local Bridges last night with Rob to do a little Nightime Bridge fishing. Rob had told me that they had done very well a few days last week so I was pretty stoked for a big fish. Arrived about 9pm and started to set up. Lowered a lantern hung on a rope down to the waters surface. This will attract bait fish and with the bait fish there we should expect to see some Game fish eating the bait. It was incredible to say the least. We caught our own bait with a dip style net and then used light action poles to catch some bait fish to use for the Big Girls. Landed up catching a few Lady Fish and tossed them out with the intentions of catching a Big Female Snook or two. I had the first bite which we think was a very large Snook, big powerful hit on the bait, which by t...
