Setting Expectations

In the last few years maybe the biggest casualty for sellers in this area has been to their expectations of what their home is worth. Many sellers still labor under the illusion that it’s 2005 and if and when they sell their home they’ll get what they want for it. It often seems that, no […]

It Sure Was a Great Moment!

Well, maybe not the whole World’s reaction, but lot’s of folks in the USA. Pretty cool video!

Funky Foto Contest Week 110

OK, it’s kind of a weird one…I’ll give you that. It just sort of seemed obscure enough that it seemed perfect for this contest too. At any rate, the question this week is simply, where is this new thing we’re looking at going in? If you’re first to answer this question you’ll win a $30.00 […]

The Latest & Greatest

I’m not sure if this is actually a new phenomenon for 2010 or if it’s been like this for awhile and I just didn’t notice it, but it sure does seem to me like there’s an incredible fascination with the concept of “new” this year. Maybe when the market was blistering hot everything sold so fast […]

It’s in the courtyard behind the Metro Center, right in front of the Visa building. This week’s winner, finally, after finishing second for several weeks was Dana Ferri who wins the $30.00 […]

The Brits and The Oil Spill

Hilarious! I wish it wasn’t true!

Funky Foto Contest Week 109

Hey, the US got robbed on that call! Sorry I’m late…I got too wrapped up with the World Cup. Anyway, this weeks question simply begs for the answer…where is this tower? If you’re first to answer correctly you’ll win a $30.00 gift card to Noah’s Bagels over there by Starbucks. All the rules of the road […]


A few weeks ago at an open house I was working, someone asked me if the bonus room downstairs was done with a permit. The sellers had converted some storage space into a little room that they watched TV in and it was actually really nicely finished although there were no windows in that room. […]
