The Narcissist Number and Sales

…Obviously worried about appearances, my son took a picture of me exaggerating the size of a fish.

We all hear a lot about narcissism and social media seems to encourage it. Just think about selfies. Over coffee this morning, I thought it might be interesting to compare social media users and the number of […]

Just Walk Away….

Everyone should be willing to walk away from an offer or contract. As a broker, I want to help clients when they need to agree or when they need to move on. Being an advocate for a client sometimes means reinforcing a realistic view or speaking, when going forward may not be in their best […]

Remembering Early Investment Lessons or Oatmeal Never Killed Anyone

Beyond most of the thoughts you might have when buying investment property, being fairly certain of a profit should be an early rule. I can remember buying a duplex in the late 80’s. Not long out of college and I was saving most of my income and lucky enough to have a nudge in the […]

iPhone Pictures and Real Estate

I’m often at a property with only an iPhone for pictures….or is it “ONLY” an iPhone? The shots I manage with several apps and the editing features built into the phone aren’t exactly shabby. Some of the tricks I use include panoramic shots, angles meant to show off the depth or showcase a feature and […]

VE zones are areas subject to wave action, with an elevation requirement as well. Knowing this before […]

Random Headlines in Real Estate

Real estate is interesting, if you pay attention. This morning over coffee, I picked through some amazing headlines and kept thinking about the importance of location. Whether physical, on social media, in kinds of marketing or sources of information, location means everything.

This is my first real break of the day, even considering coffee, with […]

Don’t Auto-share from Social Network to Social Network

Social media is a part of our day, assuming you’re part of the 95% of the population actively engaged. Why shouldn’t you share a post from one account on one platform to another? I’m specifically talking about Facebook posts being share to Twitter and vice versa. I’ve been guilty of turning on the share button […]

The Magical Blue Twitter Checkmark

I’m half tongue in cheek as I write, but everyone out there has to wonder exactly how Twitter chooses to verify an account. My business account on Facebook is verified and it is a pretty straightforward process. Twitter is something different. It isn’t popularity, because I can see accounts with fewer followers and the mythical, […]
