Watch out, this little girl just got her wheels and has been cited for reckless driving.  She was actually stopped while handing out listing presentations to the neighbors.  If seen please report to her proud father at 616-292-7329 to make sure this doesn't get out of hand. I hope you smiled toda...
Ok, so I have been blessed with 3 sales the last 7 days.  Is it right to start telling about them, because what happens if something falls through?  2 are brand new homeowners, and one has owned before.  All three had nothing to sell which helped them in negotiating great deals. I already know th...
 Have you noticed new members have started to pick up?  We are now over 45,000 members.  I remember (now I sound like my parents or grand parents)  when I first joined in March we where under 20,000.  So now our opportunity value has grown substantially.

Through Wednesday, 131 national and regional mortgage lenders have stopped doing business around the country, with several of them being in the Michigan markets. The crisis had been branded as a sub-prime mortgage crisis, but it is hurting a wide array of home owners. Over the past 12 months over...
What is going to change the level of foreclosures in Michigan? I have a strong opinion.  The State of Michigan should declare a moratorium on all foreclosures for 60 days and review each foreclosure on a case by case  basis.  Does the bank really want the home?  What good does it do to displace p...
