Let me spill the beans on something pretty awesome. Remember when I shared all about Provo Utah bagging the title of the best-performing city last year? Well, guess what?

And in 2024, it’s not just the locals singing its praises; the whole country is taking notice. Provo has once again been named one of the best-performing cities in the United States.

So, I stumbled upon this cozy spot called Asa Ramen right in the heart of Provo/Orem, and oh boy, was it a delightful surprise!

Sunshine and buzzes fill the air... Walking outside to the garden area, I noticed several honey bees darting past, busily foraging on a warmer, southern Utah winter day. A practiced landing at the hive to unload saddlebags, heavily laden with food, then setting off again to collect more. Am excited to see their proactive spirit, perhaps a lesson for humans on self-sufficiency rather relying on outside means for sustainability. Bees have the best work ethic of most creatures that I know, other than the dung beetle and we all know what he deals with, day in and day out. And that’s no bull!

  I have a story for you! So, there we were, gearing up for my eldest granddaughter’s big 16 — yeah, the sweet sixteen bash. Every year, it’s been our little tradition to go out for sushi because, let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good sushi night, right? But this year, I thought, “Let’s kick things up a notch.” I mean, it’s not every day your granddaughter turns 16. She’s pretty much obsessed with sushi (who can blame her?), so I set out to find the perfect spot that would make this birthday unforgettable. Enter Mr. Shabu, our knight in shining armor, nestled right on the border of Orem, a hop, skip, and a jump away from Provo, Utah. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill sushi joint.

Well… Good, concise communication truly matters while transacting. The ability to negotiate, depends on many factors, including the spirit of cooperation.. The art of conversion loses all meaning or reference when neither side of the parties involved agree to bend at all. Sometimes you just have to say… Well…

Weathering Through Man-made Squallers Inclement weather is a part of life in all corners of the world. People in high-risk areas prepare for the worst by using the best, tried and true methods in preventing undue harm to their loved ones or properties. Nothing can prepare for the man-made storms that are heaped upon us, though, especially those designed to incite. As industry professionals, we become the voice of reason when emotions run at high velocity. Verbal outbursts, while mediating come from the desire to control. Angry tirades are best quashed immediately or dealt with from a distance rather than right-in-your-face. This type of situation can escalate quickly! The three stages of a storm:🌬 Heading into the storm - handling presented challenges thoughtfully and swiftly is relativ...

A Soft Touch Gets Positive Results. Gone are the days of generic, scripted prose, designed to entice the consumer when buying or selling property. It always sounded rehearsed and the worse thing in business, is to feel you're being sold! When beginning my real estate career, trainers were exalting the results of such memorized speech in every, in-person session. This also included the 'foot in the door' routine before the homeowner closed it. That's almost trespassing and an aggressive approach in convincing someone to hire an experienced professional to potentially list a property. Never tried it and have zero plans of adding it to my business model!  Instead, I created a client-centric advertising and marketing plan, one that has a softer approach geared toward past work experiences. ...
