                                    I must admit enjoying the show House Hunters. Even before becoming an agent I would tune in 2-3 times a week and watch some random family buy a home.   Now that I show houses multiple times a week, I have strayed from the House Hunters approach. On the show the...

My Wish came true! While in Juneau Alaska I got the opportunity to go Whale watching and I saw lots of whales and tails! Here are a few of my pics!         If you ever have the opportunity to go whale watching whether in Alaska,  Hawaii or somewhere else.... Just Do It! It was amazing how large t...

                                The week started out with much promise. A featured blog on ActiveRain, and some irons in the real estate fire as well. Then it hit. Monday afternoon I was really thirsty, by Tuesday morning I had a full blown summer cold!   Being sick in the winter is understandabl...

                                       These days everyone wants a bargain. Buyers will often call the office clamoring for information concerning any "new" foreclosures that are about to hit the market. And while there is value to be had in such properties, there is a dark underbelly people shou...

                                   There seems to be a little confusion amongst the general public regarding how real estate agents are paid. And considering most people only buy or sell a home every 5-7 years, why would anyone remember such details? Understanding how their agent earns a living c...

Trust is sometimes a difficult task. There is only one that you can always depend on, and that is God! Trust in him and hold on to his promises! But blessed are those who trust in the Lordand have made the Lord their hope and confidence. Jeremiah 17:7 (New Living Translation)

          Despite the oppressive heat, I spent part of the holiday picking blueberries. While I enjoy being outdoors, the combination of high heat and pest made this chore not for the weak of heart! But as I was filling up my second bowl, I realized that this was a real estate educational opportu...

                              From the beginning let me state that I am against any sort of tax credit, rebate, or handout that adds to the federal deficit. For some reason the thought of borrowing money from my yet unborn grandchildren doesn't resonate well with me.  But if Uncle Sam does feel t...

I found this information and I thought it would be appropriate to share. I hope everyone has a safe 4th of July, 2010. And remember the sacrifices that have been made in order for us to Celebrate our Independence!   "Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005" President George W Bush signed...

                                                              About this time of year I start noticing the high school athletes. Pass any high school field and you will seem young folks suffering through two a days. That means twice a day (usually in the grueling heat) young adults are gearing up...

                                              Buying a home can be a stressful life event. After all, how often do you write a check (or sign loan documents) for a six figure sum?  With a 30 year loan you will be well beyond middle age when it is payed off. So it should come as no surprise that c...

                                 Who amongst us can honestly say they have not jammed out to Milli Vanilli and their hit song  Blame it on the rain?  The artists encourage the dear audience to blame the dying relationship on the rain. Instead of taking the heat and facing the consequences, we sho...

                                                           The Spring of 2000 was an interesting time for me. As a Grad student at LSU I felt as though I was on top of the world. Around mid-April I developed a case of the flu. This caused me to be bed bound for almost a week.  At one point in tha...

                                                Folks in the community will often ask me about the 8,000 buyer credit. Do you think this helped the economy? Sure I say, in the short term. Who wouldn't want 8,000 free dollars to put toward an 80,000 dollar starter home? Kind of hard to screw up AN...

                                              Those closest to me may have accused me of being cheap in the past. Want to add fries to your order for 50 cents more? Nope! How about an extended warranty for your car? Save that for the next sucker!  So when it comes to adopting technology, let's ju...

                                      Perhaps showing six homes in this heat did it, but I am fed up with random folks appearing during a scheduled showing. Thankfully not all of these happened today, but here has been some of my recent experience with "extra folks". 1) Hovering Home Owner--We pu...
