Is the Real Estate market bad, or is it our attitude that makes it seem unbearable? The Davie County homes for sale are up in number and down in the sold category. However, we can look at the number and listen to the media in order to establish our perspective, OR you can, in the […]

How Long Before the Office is Extinct?

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Remember back when phones were hard wired LAN lines and you had to “dial in” to connect to the Internet? Things are a little different these days. Technology has evolved as fast (or faster) than people can adapt. With so many new tools at the disposal of the professional, when will the antiquated office space […]

Is Your Phone, Duty?

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

I have worked at a couple of different real estate offices and I have seen a recurring pattern in regards to phone duty. Some agents call it floor duty, or being on call. I say call it whatever you want, just do not call it a waste of time! Generally, duty agents complain about being […]

I am writing this because Docusign paid me…

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Hold your horses! Docusign did NOT literally pay me or provide any other form of compensation to write this post or sing their praises.

Not just around the World but also here in our great country. We really cannot do anything to stop or prevent a natural disaster. […]

Real Estate Technology: How to do it ALL!

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

The real estate industry has changed so much over the past few years especially with regards to technology. In an industry where the average age is in the mid 50’s adapting to new technologies can be a difficult task.

Broke-R-Wealthy?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Many people get into real estate thinking it is a get-rich-quick scheme. Some people enter the business thinking it will be a nice part-time job to get some extra income on weekends. Let’s face it, in this market you are either full (and over) time, or dabbling. I understand that it is a tough market. […]
