Do You Want FLAWS?

As a real estate broker and trainer, I advise agents to address the FLAWS with a listing. Flaws are imperfections in a home that can be fixed. In short, FLAWS is the seller’s to do list and it’s easy to remember: 1. Floors – If it’s carpet,  clean it. If it’s hardwood, polish it.  If it’s linoleum,  replace it. If it’s tile, deepRead the Rest…


Social Media in Real Estate: Do It Yourself or Outsource It?

I had the pleasure of being selected to participate in a group interview about Small Business Development Centers and entrepreneurs.

What’s the Difference Between Agent & Broker?

Realtor, Agent and Broker are terms used synonymously by many. Here’s the myth, the terms are NOT the same. The word agent can be used in the same context as salesperson.

Reflect, Re-evaluate & React!

I always say for every action there is a reaction. It is true in business and life. If you do nothing, you get nothing. That option is easy. It is easier to complain, be complacent and blame everything and everyone for why you have not moved, acted or believed anything you have envisioned will happen. If you want to reachRead the Rest…


Attitude of Gratitude

We are usually less than grateful, not because we are ungrateful individuals but creatures of habit. It takes a conscious effort to be grateful. Let’s look at a typical day.
