We understand and are at ease with. Right? Well yes, unless it is you and then you become the client with all the ...
We have and have had a good real estate market. It shows some cracks and some indications of decline but not a flat out free fall. Too many positive factors. Our market is fueled by recreation, retirement and job growth. here is an article from the local paper about jobs in NCW . It mentions the ...
I remember reading somewhere that about 25% of businesses fail because of poor accounting. I have also blogged on AR about the importance of a GOOD accountant, paying taxes and also bottom line. We cannot control the market, we cannot control our sales, though with luck we can influence them. We ...

So Id like to discuss, from a buyers perspective, a few ways to get your price and what should be done.First a generalizat...
I was reading a blog on AR about not knowing where your next client is coming from. (Good blog and comments by the way.) I remembered an experience I had as a new agent with a name tag.I was late for an appointment with an HR type to present some material for relocation. The office was located in...
